1 2 3 4 5 6 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 7 FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 8 9 IN RE EDWARD COTRELLE TIDWELL No. C 16-06149 WHA 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 12 ORDER DISCHARGING ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE 13 14 / 15 16 A prior order dated March 3 required debtor and appellant Edward Tidwell to show 17 cause by March 24 why this bankruptcy appeal should not be dismissed for failure to perfect the 18 record on appeal (Dkt. No. 16). Debtor failed to timely respond. On April 28, however, the 19 bankruptcy court transmitted the record on appeal. 20 On May 22 — approximately two months after the deadline to show cause — debtor 21 filed a document titled “Appellant’s Response to Order to Show Cause; Appellant’s Request for 22 Judicial Notice; and Appellant’s Scheduling Order” (Dkt. No. 19). The document, to the extent 23 comprehensible, seems to argue the merits of debtor’s appeal (see id. at 3–6) and seek a 24 hodgepodge of miscellaneous relief. As just two nonexhaustive examples, debtor asks to 25 withdraw his stipulated voluntary dismissal with prejudice previously filed in a different 26 bankruptcy appeal (id. at 7) and proposes that the Court reconsider a previous order denying his 27 motion for appointment of pro bono counsel in a related civil action (Dkt. No. 19-1). 28 1 Because the record on appeal has been transmitted, this order DISCHARGES the order to 2 show cause dated March 3. Any and all relief arguably sought in debtor’s May 22 filing is 3 DENIED without prejudice to renewed request via proper motion. Debtor is reminded that, 4 under the initial case management scheduling order, the briefing schedule for this bankruptcy 5 appeal began upon “docketing of notice that the record has been transmitted or is available 6 electronically on the District Court’s docket” (Dkt. No. 2). 7 8 IT IS SO ORDERED. 9 Dated: May 25, 2017.
