UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
AMERICAN GENERAL LIFE
ANTONIO BURRELL, et al.,
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE WHY
SANCTIONS SHOULD NOT BE ISSUED
FOR REPEATED FAILURE TO
COMPLY WITH COURT ORDERS
Dkt. No. 56
On February 15, 2017, the court stayed this interpleader action and ordered Defendants
Lesia Habte and Antonio Burrell (collectively “Defendants”) to file a joint status report every 90
days. [Docket No. 49]. Because Defendants failed to file their first joint status report, even after
being ordered to do so, the court issued an order to show cause why Defendants should not be
sanctioned for their failure to comply with court orders. [Docket No. 52].
On June 7, 2017, after reviewing Defendants’ late responses to the order to show cause, the
court discharged the order to show cause. [Docket No. 56]. However, the court expressly warned
Defendants that “further failure to submit timely status reports will result in sanctions.” [Docket
No. 56]. The court provided the deadline for the next joint status report, August 14, 2017, and
stressed that “[c]ounsel are expected to calendar these dates going forward.” [Docket No. 56].
No joint status report was filed by August 14, 2017. This is the second time in a row that
Defendants have failed to comply with the court’s orders. Accordingly, Defendants are ordered to
respond by August 18, 2017, and show cause why they should not be sanctioned for their repeated
failure to follow court orders.
