NANCY A. BERRYHILL,
Case No. 1:16-cv-01765-SKO
ORDER THAT PLAINTIFF FILE A
WRITTEN STATEMENT SHOWING
CAUSE WHY CASE SHOULD NOT BE
DISMISSED OR THAT PLAINTIFF FILE
AN OPENING BRIEF
Acting Commissioner of Social Security,
On November 21, 2016, Plaintiff, represented by counsel and proceeding in forma
18 pauperis, filed the present action in this Court.
Plaintiff seeks review of the
19 Commissioner’s denial of her application for benefits. (Doc. 1.)
The Court entered a Scheduling Order on November 22, 2016. (Doc. 5.) Pursuant to the
21 Scheduling Order, Plaintiff’s Opening Brief was due July 11, 2017—95 days from service of the
22 administrative record on April 7, 2017 (Doc. 9). (See Doc. 5.) On July 11, 2017, Plaintiff failed
23 to file and serve her Opening Brief with the Court and on opposing counsel. (See Docket.)
24 Plaintiff is, therefore, ordered to show cause, if any, why the action should not be dismissed for
25 failure to comply with the Court’s Scheduling Order and for want of prosecution. (Doc. 5.)
26 Alternatively, Plaintiff may file an Opening Brief.
Accordingly, it is HEREBY ORDERED that:
By no later than August 14, 2017, Plaintiff shall either:
file a written response to this Order showing cause why the Court should
not dismiss this action for failure to comply with the Court’s Scheduling
Order and for want of prosecution; or
file an Opening Brief.
Failure to respond to this Order to Show Cause will result in dismissal of this action.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
