ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE
COUNTY OF SONOMA, et al.,
At 10:00 am on Thursday, January 26, 2017, the Court held an initial case management
conference and motion to dismiss hearing, both of which were noticed for this date. Pro se
plaintiff John Doe, who is proceeding under a pseudonym, did not appear. Plaintiff had made no
prior request to be excused from the hearing or to reschedule the hearing date. His failure to
appear is unexcused and violates the Local Rules and the Court’s standing order for civil cases.
Doe is ordered to show cause why the Court should not dismiss this case for failure to
prosecute. His written response is due by February 9, 2017.
If Doe intends to pursue this case, he may wish to consult a manual the court has adopted
to assist pro se litigants in presenting their case. This manual, and other free information, is
available online at: http://cand.uscourts.gov/proselitigants.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: January 26, 2017
