See Dkt. No. 63. Defense counsel was 16 ordered to respond by March 25, 2016, but failed to comply with the Court’s order. Similarly, the Court also ordered Mr. Khakshooy’s co-counsel to order a transcript of the 17 18 further case management conference that occurred in this matter on March 15, 2016, and direct 19 Mr. Khakshooy, who did not attend, to review the transcript and e-file an acknowledgment on the 20 docket. Dkt. No. 62. No such acknowledgment has yet been filed. 21 At that same further case management conference, the Court instructed the parties to meet 22 and confer by 5:30 p.m. on March 15, 2016, regarding a proposed case schedule and submit it for 23 the Court’s consideration. Id. Plaintiff’s counsel filed a proposed case schedule on March 21, 24 2016. Dkt. No. 64. In that filing, Plaintiff’s counsel alerted the Court that Mr. Khakshooy did not 25 participate in the preparation or filing of the case management statement. Dkt. No. 64-1 ¶¶ 4-8. 26 Defendant still has not filed any proposed schedule, and failed to sign off on the filing of its 27 proposal as part of the joint statement.
