IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
CIV. NO. S-09-24 JAM CKD PS
STATE OF CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT
OF CORRECTIONS, et al.,
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE
Plaintiff is proceeding pro se in this action, referred to the undersigned pursuant to
Local Rule 302(c)(21). Defendants’ motions for summary judgment are presently noticed for
hearing on the September 14, 2011 law and motion calendar of the undersigned. Opposition to
motions, or a statement of non-opposition thereto, must be filed fourteen days preceding the
noticed hearing date. E.D. Cal. L. R. 230(c). Court records reflect that plaintiff failed to timely
file opposition or a statement of non-opposition to the motion.
Failure to comply with the Local Rules “may be grounds for imposition by the
Court of any and all sanctions authorized by statute or Rule or within the inherent power of the
Court.” E.D. Cal. L. R. 11-110; see Ghazali v. Moran, 46 F.3d 52, 53 (9th Cir. 1995).
Additionally, “[n]o party will be entitled to be heard in opposition to a motion at oral arguments
if written opposition to the motion has not been timely filed.” E.D. Cal. L. R. 230(c). Pro se
litigants are bound by the rules of procedure, even though pleadings are liberally construed in
their favor. King v. Atiyeh, 814 F.2d 565, 567 (9th Cir. 1987); Jacobsen v. Filler, 790 F.2d 1362,
1364-65 (9th Cir.1986). The Local Rules specifically provide that cases of persons appearing in
propria persona who fail to comply with the Federal and Local Rules are subject to dismissal,
judgment by default, and other appropriate sanctions. E.D. Cal. L. R. 183.
Good cause appearing, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The hearing date of September 14, 2011 is vacated. Hearing on defendants’
motions is continued to October 19, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. in courtroom no. 26.
2. Plaintiff shall show cause, in writing, no later than September 28, 2011 why
sanctions should not be imposed for failure timely to file opposition or a statement of non-
opposition to the pending motions.
3. Plaintiff is directed to file opposition, if any, to the motions, or a statement of
non-opposition thereto, no later than September 28, 2011. Failure to file opposition and appear
at hearing, or to file a statement of non-opposition, will be deemed a statement of non-
opposition, and shall result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed.
4. Reply, if any, shall be filed no later than October 5, 2011.
Dated: September 5, 2011
