GMYL, L.P. v. Peter Coppola Beauty LLC et al
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE Order to Show Cause Hearing set for 6/23/2016 10:00 AM. (vclc3S, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 5/6/2016)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
Case No. 15-cv-03724-VC
PETER COPPOLA BEAUTY LLC, et al.,
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE; ORDER
SETTING CASE MANAGEMENT
Peter Coppola and his attorney, Ronald E. D'Anna, are ordered to show cause why they
should not be sanctioned under 28 U.S.C. § 1927 and/or the Court's inherent authority. D'Anna
has had actual knowledge of the proceedings against his client since at least October 29, 2015;
nevertheless, he and his client failed to participate in this litigation until April 22, 2016. This has
wasted a significant amount of time for the Court and for the plaintiff.
A hearing on the order to show cause will take place on June 23, 2016. Peter Coppola
and Ronald D'Anna must both personally appear at this hearing. In addition, local counsel must
appear at the hearing. If GMYL wishes to make any submission in support of sanctions for the
conduct of Coppola and D'Anna, it must do so by May 18, 2016. A written response to the order
to show cause, and to any submission by GMYL, is due June 2.
On the date of the hearing, an in-person case management conference will take place as
well. This means all parties must file a joint case management conference statement by June 16.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
