See E.D. Cal. L.R. 110 (“Failure of counsel or of a party to comply with these Rules or 25 with any order of the Court may be grounds for imposition by the Court of any and all sanctions 26 authorized by statute or Rule or within the inherent power of the Court.”). This sum shall be paid 27 to the Clerk of the Court no later than thirty days from the date of this order. Counsel for 28 defendant shall file an affidavit accompanying the payment of this sanction which states that it is 1 1 paid personally by him, out of personal funds, and is not and will not be billed, directly or 2 indirectly, to his clients or in any way made the responsibility of his clients as attorneys’ fees or 3 costs. 4 The Settlement Conference is RESET for March 2, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. in Courtroom No. 5 8.
