bankruptcy stay. ECF Nos. 24, 57–59. In February 2016, Homecomings filed a notice of the
bankruptcy court’s order requiring plaintiffs to “take all appropriate actions to dismiss their
monetary claims against [Homecomings] with prejudice.” Notice at 2, ECF No. 60; id. Ex. A
(Bankruptcy Order). This court then ordered plaintiffs to show cause why the court should not
lift the stay as to Homecomings and dismiss the action for plaintiffs’ failure to prosecute their
case. ECF No. 60. Although that response was due on July 5, 2017, plaintiffs have not
responded to the court’s order to show cause as of the date of this order. As a result, dismissal for
plaintiffs’ failure to prosecute their case is appropriate. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b); Hells Canyon
Preservation Council v. U.S. Forest Serv., 403 F.3d 683, 689 (9th Cir. 2005) (explaining a court
may, sua sponte, dismiss for failure to prosecute under Rule 41(b)).
Accordingly, the court LIFTS the stay as to Homecomings and DISMISSES this
action with prejudice. This case is now closed.
This order resolves ECF No. 60.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATED: August 2, 2017.
