UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
Case No. 16-cv-06950-KAW
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE
CITY AND COUNTY OF SAN
FRANCISCO, et al.,
United States District Court
Northern District of California
On July 25, 2017, the Court held a case management conference, at which Plaintiff John
Doe failed to appear. (Dkt. No. 46.) At the conference, Defendants informed the Court that
Plaintiff failed to attend his deposition on July 21, 2017, despite the Court's July 7, 2017 order
requiring Plaintiff's attendance.1 (Dkt. No. 43 at 1.)
Accordingly, Plaintiff is ORDERED TO SHOW CAUSE, in writing, by no later than
August 11, 2017, why the case should not be dismissed for failure to prosecute. In the alternative,
as Plaintiff has indicated to both the Court and Defendants that he intends to dismiss the case,
Plaintiff may file a voluntary dismissal of the suit on or before August 4, 2017 to avoid dismissal
and/or the imposition of sanctions. If Plaintiff files a voluntary dismissal, he need not also
respond to the order to show cause.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: July 26, 2017
KANDIS A. WESTMORE
United States Magistrate Judge
The Court also warned Plaintiff that "his failure to attend his deposition may result in sanctions,
including the dismissal of his case." (Dkt. No. 43 at 1.)
