Edwards v. Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District et al
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE. Signed by Judge Vince Chhabria on 6/21/2017. (knm, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 6/21/2017)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
Case No. 15-cv-05778-VC
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE
ALAMEDA-CONTRA COSTA TRANSIT
DISTRICT, et al.,
The plaintiff is ordered to show cause why the plaintiff and his counsel should not be
sanctioned for failing to meet and confer in connection with the pre-trial filings and failing to
properly set up the issues for adjudication at the pretrial conference. The plaintiff is ordered to
file a written response to this Order by June 26, 2017. Defendants' response is due on July 3,
2017. The pretrial conference and trial dates are vacated.
Furthermore, plaintiff's counsel and defendants' counsel are ordered to come to court on
Tuesday, July 11 at 9:00 AM, to meet and confer regarding the pretrial filings. The Courtroom
Deputy will show counsel to the location where they will meet and confer, and counsel are
ordered to return there each day until they have resolved all issues with the pretrial filings. Once
the meet and confer is complete, the parties will re-file all pretrial papers. After that, the Court
will schedule a case management conference to decide when to reschedule the pretrial
conference and trial.
The Court will sanction the plaintiff and his counsel by requiring them to pay the costs
and fees incurred by the defendants in coming to court to meet and confer over the pretrial
filings, unless the plaintiff's response to the Order to Show Cause convinces the Court that the
plaintiff and his counsel are not responsible for the current situation.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: June 21, 2017
