NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
CASE NO. 17-cv-00473-YGR
ORDER RE: PLAINTIFF’S LETTER ON
DEFENDANTS’ MOTIONS TO DISMISS
TANI CANTIL-SAKAUYE, ET AL.,
Re: Dkt. No. 44
On May 3, 2017, plaintiff filed a three-page, single-spaced letter presenting additional
argument and authorities in support of his opposition to defendants’ motions to dismiss. (Dkt. No.
United States District Court
Northern District of California
44.) Plaintiff previously filed an opposition to the same on April 11, 2017 (Dkt. No. 32), and
defendants filed their replies on April 18, 2017 (Dkt. Nos. 39, 40). On April 24, 2017, the Court
vacated the hearing on such motions, indicating that it would issue an order based on the parties’
submissions. (Dkt. No. 42.) Plaintiff’s filing on May 3, 2017 therefore is in contravention of the
Local Rules, which provide thus: “Once a reply is filed, no additional memoranda, papers or
letters may be filed without prior Court approval” except in two circumstances not at issue here.
Civil L.R. 7-3(d).
Ordinarily, plaintiff’s filing at Docket Number 44 would be stricken from the record and
sanctions potentially would issue. Given the plaintiff’s pro se status, he is hereby warned that he
must still comply with his obligations under the Local Rules of this District and this Court’s
Standing Orders. Further failures to comply may result in sanctions. Plaintiff should have
requested a reasonable continuance to comply with his obligations.
Given the substantive nature of the letter, defendants may file a joint brief in response not
to exceed six pages by May 19, 2017. No other filings on the issues presented will be allowed
without Court authorization.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: May 5, 2017
