1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 v. CALIFORNIA PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION, et al., Defendants. ___________________________________/ Previously, Plaintiff submitted filings on November 25 and December 1, 2009, regarding her deposition. See Docket Nos. 203, 206. The Court ordered the parties to meet and confer on the issues raised in Plaintiff's filings. See Docket Nos. 205, 214. The Court also instructed the parties to file a joint letter if all disputes were not resolved in the meet and confer. The parties did not file a joint letter as ordered by the Court. Instead, they provided separate status reports. Those reports reflect that there is no issue in need of judicial resolution at this time. Accordingly, the Court need not make any rulings with respect to Plaintiff's submissions of November 25 and December 1. As a final point, the Court advises the parties that, in the future, it shall expect strict compliance with its orders. Thus, if a joint submission is required, then a joint submission -- and not separate submissions -- must be provided, at least absent a showing of good cause. Here, the reason tendered by Plaintiff for not making a joint submission is not justified. A failure to check the mail DONNA HINES, Plaintiff, No. C-07-4145 CW (EMC) ORDER RE PARTIES' STATUS REPORTS OF DECEMBER 11, 2009 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA United States District Court 11 For the Northern District of California 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 for several days is not enough to establish good cause. Moreover, even if Plaintiff had not seen the Court's order of December 4, 2009, the Court's order of December 1, 2009, clearly required a joint submission. Failure to comply may result in sanctions.
