While the joint discovery letter nominally was submitted only by plaintiff Marino and defendant CACafe, and document requests were propounded by CACafe, Inc., the dispute concerns document requests and requests for admissions as to each and every defendant. A compliance hearing date on this Order to Show Cause will be set for Friday, March 23, 24 2018, on the Court’s 9:01a.m. calendar, in the Federal Courthouse, 1301 Clay Street, Oakland, 25 California, Courtroom 1. 26 By no later than Friday, March 16, 2018, defendants and their counsel shall file a written 27 response to this Order to Show Cause. If the Court is satisfied with the response, it will vacate 28 the compliance hearing date. Otherwise, the Court will set this matter for hearing requiring the 1 personal appearance of lead trial counsel on a date to be noticed. Neither a special appearance 2 nor a telephonic appearance will be permitted. Failure to file a timely written response will be 3 deemed an admission that no good cause exists and that the imposition of monetary sanctions is 4 appropriate. 5 6 7 8 9 10 Counsel are cautioned that future similar violations may result in increased sanction amounts. IT IS SO ORDERED.
