LOWE’S HOME CENTERS, LLC, et al.,
Case No. 1: 21-cv-01404-NONE-SAB
ORDER REQUIRING PLAINTIFF’S COUNSEL
TO SHOW CAUSE WHY SANCTIONS SHOULD
NOT BE IMPOSED FOR FAILURE TO APPEAR
AT SCHEDULING CONFERENCE AND
FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH LOCAL RULE
ORDER DIRECTING THE CLERK OF COURT
TO SERVE THIS ORDER BY MAIL ON
A scheduling conference was held in in this matter on November 19, 2021. (ECF No. 3.)
Counsel for Plaintiff, Patrick Khalil, failed to appear at the scheduling conference. Further,
counsel Patrick Khalil has failed to register for admission to practice in the Eastern District of
Local Rule 110 provides that “[f]ailure of counsel or of a party to comply with these Rules
or with any order of the Court may be grounds for imposition by the Court of any and all
sanctions . . . within the inherent power of the Court.” The Court has the inherent power to
control its docket and may, in the exercise of that power, impose sanctions where appropriate,
including dismissal of the action. Bautista v. Los Angeles County, 216 F.3d 837, 841 (9th Cir.
2000). “All attorneys who wish to file documents in the Eastern District of California must be
admitted to practice or admitted to appear pro hac vice. Admission to practice in the Eastern
District of California includes the requirement that the attorney complete an e-filing registration
form and receive a username and password.” L.R. 135(g) (emphasis in original).
Based on the foregoing, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
Within four (4) days from the date of service of this order, counsel for Plaintiff,
Patrick Khalil, shall show cause in writing why he should not be sanctioned for
failing to appear at the scheduling conference and for failing to register for
admission to the Eastern District of California; and
The Clerk of Court is DIRECTED to serve this order by mail on Plaintiff’s counsel
Plaintiff’s counsel is warned that failure to comply with this order may result in the
imposition of sanctions including but not limited to dismissal of this action.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
