1 2 3 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 4 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 5 6 NORMAN SABEL, Plaintiff, 7 8 9 10 v. CITY AND COUNTY OF SAN FRANCISCO, et al., Case No. 16-cv-04832-TEH ORDER CONTINUING CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE Defendants. United States District Court Northern District of California 11 12 On June 29, 2017, this Court ordered Plaintiff’s counsel to file, by July 10, a 13 declaration that he sent a copy of that order to his client. Counsel failed to do so, but he 14 did file the required declaration on July 25, 2017 – fifteen days late. The Court also 15 ordered the parties to file a joint case management conference statement on or before 16 July 24. The parties instead filed separate statements, despite the efforts to meet and 17 confer described by Defendants’ counsel in her declaration. 18 Although Plaintiff’s counsel’s personal difficulties are interfering with his ability to 19 represent Plaintiff in this case, the Court does not at this time find good cause to dismiss 20 the case for failure to prosecute. However, it encourages counsel to continue seeking 21 co-counsel or substitute counsel to assist with the prosecution of this case. 22 The parties are advised that the undersigned will soon be assuming inactive status, 23 and that this case will be reassigned to another judge on or around August 14, 2017. The 24 Court finds it prudent to continue the July 31, 2017 case management conference to leave 25 maximum discretion in how to manage this case to the newly assigned judge. 26 Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the July 31, 2017 case management 27 conference is CONTINUED to August 28, 2017, at 1:30 PM. If any updates to the 28 parties’ July 24 statements are appropriate, the parties shall file a joint statement on or 1 before August 21, 2017. The newly assigned judge may, in his or her discretion, alter one 2 or both of these dates. 3 4 IT IS SO ORDERED. 5 6 7 Dated: 07/25/17 _____________________________________ THELTON E.
