Glass v. U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
ORDER OF DISMISSAL. Signed by Judge James Donato on 10/7/2019. (jdlc2S, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 10/7/2019)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Case No. 16-cv-02142-JD
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND
URBAN DEVELOPMENT, et al.,
This case has been inactive since May 9, 2018, when pro se plaintiff Leigh Glass filed a
case management statement asking that “scheduling be postponed” and “setting a trial date be
postponed,” to allow further attempts at settlement. Dkt. No. 61 at 4. Consequently, on
September 13, 2019, the Court issued an order for plaintiff Glass to show cause why the case
should not be dismissed under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(b), for failure to prosecute.
Dkt. No. 63. The deadline for a response was September 25, 2019. No response has been filed.
Plaintiff has failed to show any cause why the case should not be dismissed and she
appears to have abandoned the case. While the Court favors the disposition of cases on the merits,
it has considered the five factors set forth in Malone v. United States Postal Service, 833 F.2d 128,
130 (9th Cir. 1987), and finds that dismissal here is warranted by the circumstances. The case is
dismissed without prejudice under Rule 41(b) and the file is closed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: October 7, 2019
