IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
UNITED STATES ex rel. Samuel J. May,
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
ORDER DENYING MOTION
TO REOPEN CASE
No. C 10-02577 WHA
This action was assigned to Magistrate Judge Bernard Zimmerman. Judge Zimmerman
informed the relator, Samuel May, that he could not proceed pro se in this False Claims Act,
and he was given two extensions of the deadline to retain counsel. See Stoner v. Santa Clara
County Off. of Educ., 502 F.3d 1116, 1126 (9th Cir. 2007). After the second deadline lapsed,
Judge Zimmerman dismissed the action for failure to prosecute. Four years later, May now
seeks to reopen the case to hold an evidentiary hearing to determine his share of a purportedly
related case. May has still not retained counsel, and his filings are untimely and plainly
May’s motions to reopen the case and hold an evidentiary hearing are DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: July 12, 2016.
