1 2 3 4 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 5 Northern District of California 6 7 JOHN WESTON OSBURN, Plaintiff, 8 No. C 12-3397 MEJ SECOND ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE v. 9 OAKLAND POLICE OFFICERS, et al., 10 Defendants. _____________________________________/ 12 For the Northern District of California UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 11 13 On October 1, 2012, the Court vacated the Case Management Conference in this case and 14 ordered Plaintiff John Weston Osburn to file a status report. Dkt. No. 3. As he failed to respond, the 15 Court ordered Plaintiff to show cause why this case should not be dismissed for failure to prosecute 16 and failure to comply with court deadlines. Dkt. No. 4. In response, Plaintiff’s counsel filed a 17 declaration stating that “the agreement for settlement had already been reached when the case was 18 filed—there having been an earlier version brought in the Alameda Count Superior Court, which had 19 to be superseded because of a time problem—and so I had essentially moved it to the “done” column, 20 carried in my head; not an adequate mode for keeping track, I admit.” Dkt. No. 5. Based on this 21 response, the Court discharged the order to show cause and ordered Plaintiff to file a dismissal or 22 status report by February 14, 2013. Dkt. No. 6. Plaintiff has again failed to comply with the Court’s 23 order. 24 Accordingly, the Court ORDERS Plaintiff’s counsel, Dennis Cunningham, to provide his 25 client, John Weston Osburn, with (1) a copy of this order, (2) the January 3, 2013 Order to Show 26 Cause, and (3) Mr. Cunningham’s January 17 declaration in response. Mr. Cunningham shall provide 27 the copies by March 8, 2013. Plaintiff shall thereafter file a declaration by March 15, 2013, attesting 28 that he has received copies of these documents. Further, the Court ORDERS Plaintiff to show cause 1 why this case should not be dismissed for repeatedly failing to comply with court orders. Plaintiff 2 shall file a separate declaration by March 15, 2013. If a responsive declaration is filed, the Court 3 shall either issue an order based on the declaration or conduct a hearing on March 28, 2013 at 10:00 4 a.m. in Courtroom B, 15th Floor, 450 Golden Gate Avenue, San Francisco, California. Notice is 5 hereby provided to Plaintiff that the Court may dismiss the case without a hearing if no responsive 6 declaration is filed. Thus, it is imperative that Plaintiff file a written response by the deadline above. 7 IT IS SO ORDERED. 8 9 Dated: March 5, 2013 _______________________________ Maria-Elena James United States Magistrate Judge 10 12 For the Northern District of California UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 11 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
