See 28 U.S.C. 636(b)(1). On July 8, 2010, defendants removed the action to this court from Sacramento County Superior Court on the ground that plaintiff's complaint alleges federal claims, and on July 15, 2010, moved to dismiss plaintiff's complaint. Dckt. Nos. 1, 9, 12. Defendants noticed the motions to be heard on August 25, 2010. Dckt. Nos. 9, 12. On August 13, 2010, because plaintiff had not filed either an opposition or a statement of non-opposition to the motions, the undersigned continued the hearing on defendants' motions to dismiss to October 6, 2010; ordered plaintiff to show cause, in writing, no later than September 22, 2010, why sanctions should not be imposed for his failure to timely file an opposition or a statement of non-opposition to the pending motions; and 1 Dockets.Justia.com IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA PAUL YANT, Plaintiff, No. CIV S-10-1756 MCE EFB PS ORDER AND FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 directed plaintiff to file an opposition to the motions, or a statement of non-opposition thereto, no later than September 22, 2010. Dckt. No. 14. The undersigned further stated that "[f]ailure of plaintiff to file an opposition will be deemed a statement of non-opposition to the pending motion, and may result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed for lack of prosecution. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b)." Id. Although the deadlines have now passed, the court docket reflects that plaintiff has not filed a response to the order to show cause, an opposition to defendants' motions, or a statement of non-opposition to the motions. In light of plaintiff's failures, the undersigned will recommend that this action be dismissed for failure to prosecute and that defendants' motions to dismiss be denied as moot. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b); L.R. 110. Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that: 1. The hearing date of October 6, 2010 on defendants' motions to dismiss, Dckt. Nos. 9 and 12, is vacated; and 2. The status (pretrial scheduling) conference currently set for hearing on November 17, 2010, is vacated.1 Further, IT IS FURTHER RECOMMENDED that: 1. This action be dismissed pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(b), based on plaintiff's failure to prosecute the action; 2. Defendants' motions to dismiss, Dckt. Nos. 9 and 12, be denied as moot; and 3. The Clerk of Court be directed to close this case. These findings and recommendations are submitted to the United States District Judge assigned to the case, pursuant to the provisions of 28 U.S.C. 636(b)(l). Within fourteen days after being served with these findings and recommendations, any party may file written As a result, the parties are not required to submit status reports as provided in the July 12, 2010 order. See Dckt. No. 5 at 2. However, if the recommendation of dismissal herein is not adopted by the district judge, the undersigned will reschedule the status conference and require the parties to submit status reports. 2 1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 objections with the court and serve a copy on all parties.
