LOWE’S HOME CENTERS, LLC, et al., 15 Defendants. 16 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 135(g) ORDER DIRECTING THE CLERK OF COURT TO SERVE THIS ORDER BY MAIL ON PLAINTIFF’S COUNSEL 17 FOUR-DAY DEADLINE 18 19 A scheduling conference was held in in this matter on November 19, 2021. (ECF No. 3.) 20 Counsel for Plaintiff, Patrick Khalil, failed to appear at the scheduling conference. Further, 21 counsel Patrick Khalil has failed to register for admission to practice in the Eastern District of 22 California. 23 Local Rule 110 provides that “[f]ailure of counsel or of a party to comply with these Rules 24 or with any order of the Court may be grounds for imposition by the Court of any and all 25 sanctions . . . within the inherent power of the Court.” The Court has the inherent power to 26 control its docket and may, in the exercise of that power, impose sanctions where appropriate, 27 including dismissal of the action. Bautista v. Los Angeles County, 216 F.3d 837, 841 (9th Cir. 28 2000). “All attorneys who wish to file documents in the Eastern District of California must be 1 1 admitted to practice or admitted to appear pro hac vice. Admission to practice in the Eastern 2 District of California includes the requirement that the attorney complete an e-filing registration 3 form and receive a username and password.” L.R. 135(g) (emphasis in original). 4 Based on the foregoing, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that: 5 1. Within four (4) days from the date of service of this order, counsel for Plaintiff, 6 Patrick Khalil, shall show cause in writing why he should not be sanctioned for 7 failing to appear at the scheduling conference and for failing to register for 8 admission to the Eastern District of California; and 9 2. 10 The Clerk of Court is DIRECTED to serve this order by mail on Plaintiff’s counsel Patrick Khalil. 11 Plaintiff’s counsel is warned that failure to comply with this order may result in the 12 imposition of sanctions including but not limited to dismissal of this action. 13 14 15 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: November 19, 2021 UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
