1 2 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 3 FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 4 OAKLAND DIVISION 5 6 J & J SPORTS PRODUCTIONS, INC., Plaintiff, 7 8 vs. Case No: C 10-04171 SBA ORDER Docket 23. 9 ULISES CONSTANTINO NAPURI, individually and d/b/a INCAS GRILL, 10 Defendant. 11 12 13 On October 18, 2011, Plaintiff filed a motion for partial summary judgment under 14 Rule 56 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Dkt. 23. Defendant’s opposition was due 15 on November 1, 2011. To date, Defendant has not filed an opposition to the motion for 16 partial summary judgment. Nor has Defendant sought an extension of time to file an 17 opposition. As such, the Court orders Defendant to file an opposition to Plaintiff’s motion 18 for partial summary judgment, or a statement of non-opposition as required under Civil 19 Local Rule 7-3(b), by no later than twenty-one (21) days from the date of this Order. 20 “A district court may not grant a motion for summary judgment simply because the 21 nonmoving party does not file opposing material, even if the failure to oppose violates a 22 local rule.” Brydges v. Lewis, 18 F.3d 651, 652 (9th Cir. 1994). However, where a local 23 rule “does not require, but merely permits the court to grant a motion for summary 24 judgment, the district court has discretion to determine whether noncompliance should be 25 deemed consent to the motion.” Id. This Court’s Standing Orders provides: “The failure of 26 the opposing party to file a memorandum of points and authorities in opposition to any 27 motion shall constitute consent to the granting of the motion.” Civil Standing Order at 5. 28 1 Accordingly, Defendant is cautioned that failure to file a timely written opposition to 2 Plaintiff’s motion for partial summary judgment shall be construed by the Court as consent 3 to the granting of the motion. 4 IT IS SO ORDERED. 5 Dated: 3/6/12 ______________________________ SAUNDRA BROWN ARMSTRONG United States District Judge 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 -2-
