1 2 3 4 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 5 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 6 7 NAVJEET SINGH BANGA, Case No. 16-cv-04270-RS Plaintiff, 8 v. ORDER 9 10 CHRIS GUS KANIOS, et al., Defendants. United States District Court Northern District of California 11 12 13 Plaintiff Navjeet Singh Banga advances a host of claims related to his attendance at and 14 dismissal from John F. Kennedy University (“JFKU”) Law School against defendants Chris Gus 15 Kanios, Dean Barbieri, Eleanor Armstrong, Debra Bean, JFKU, and National University 16 (collectively, “defendants”). Banga’s claims have already been dismissed once with leave to 17 amend. Banga has since filed an amended complaint, which defendants moved to dismiss on 18 February 21, 2017. Banga’s deadline to file a response in opposition — March 7, 2017, see Civ. 19 Local R. 7-3(a) — came and went without a response. Instead, Banga filed an untimely response 20 nearly a month later, on April 6. 21 This was not Banga’s first failure to follow the Court’s time limits. After failing to file 22 timely opposition to defendants’ prior motion to dismiss, Banga made an untimely (and 23 unsuccessful) motion to extend his response deadline in order to seek the assistance of counsel. 24 Banga is hereby admonished that he must comply with the Court’s time limits. Failure to do so 25 may result in adverse action by the Court, as well as dispositive motions being decided in 26 defendants’ favor without Banga being heard. 27 In addition to arriving late, Banga’s response to defendant’s motion appears to be 28 incomplete; it cuts off abruptly after two pages. So that defendants’ motion can be decided with 1 the benefit of the adversarial process, Banga shall have until Thursday, April 20, to supplement his 2 response, should he choose to do so. Any supplemental filing arriving after this deadline — and 3 any future untimely filings — may not be considered by the Court. In light of Banga’s 4 opportunity to supplement his response, defendants are hereby given until Thursday, April 27, to 5 file any reply brief, and the hearing set for April 20 is hereby continued to Thursday, May 4. 6 7 IT IS SO ORDERED. 8 9 10 United States District Court Northern District of California 11 Dated: April 10, 2017 ______________________________________ RICHARD SEEBORG United States District Judge 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 ORDER 28 CASE NO. 2 16-cv-04270-RS
