UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
No. 2:17-cv-01366 TLN AC (PS)
REDEVELOPING AGENCY, et al.,
Plaintiff, who has been granted in forma pauperis status, is proceeding in this action pro
se. The action was accordingly referred to the undersigned by Local Rule 302(c)(21). On
October 4, 2017, defendant Volunteers of America and defendant Gretchen Angele each filed a
motion for a more definite statement. ECF Nos. 7 and 8. Also pending is a motion to dismiss, set
for hearing on November 29, 2017, brought by defendant Sacramento Housing Redeveloping
Agency. ECF No. 15. Plaintiff did not respond to the motions, and the court has already re-set
the hearing on the motions once. ECF No. 16. The current hearing date for all pending motions
is November 29, 2017. Id. Plaintiff has not responded to any motion, but the court did receive a
notice of change of address from plaintiff on November 7, 2017. ECF No. 18.
Local Rule 230(c) provides that opposition to the granting of a motion must be filed
fourteen days preceding the noticed hearing date. The Local Rule further provides that “[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 by that party.” In addition, Local Rule 230(j) provides
that failure to appear may be deemed withdrawal of opposition to the motion or may result in
sanctions. Finally, Local Rule 110 provides that failure to comply with the Local Rules “may be
grounds for imposition of any and all sanctions authorized by statute or Rule or within the
inherent power of the Court.”
Although the court already re-set the motion once, in light of plaintiff’s changed address
and out of an abundance of caution, the court will re-set the date one final time to give plaintiff a
final opportunity to respond.
Good cause appearing, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The motion hearing date of for both motions for a more definite statement (ECF
Nos. 7 and 8) is CONTINUED to December 13, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. in Courtroom
2. The motion to dismiss (ECF No. 15) will also be heard on December 13, 2017, at
10 a.m. in Courtroom No. 26;
3. Plaintiff shall file an opposition – or a Statement of Non-Opposition – to each
pending motion (ECF No. 7, 8, and 15), no later than November 29, 2017. Failure
to file an opposition or to appear at the hearing will be deemed as a statement of
non-opposition and may result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed
pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(b).
