(Dkt. No. 16.) On August 18, 2017, the Court granted the parties’ stipulation 15 continuing the case management conference to September 29, 2017 on the ground that 16 Defendant’s counsel was scheduled to appear at a hearing in the Southern District of Indiana on 17 the date scheduled for the case management conference. 18 In granting the stipulation, the Court admonished counsel that their request to continue the 19 case management conference was untimely and that counsel had, therefore, failed to comply with 20 the Court’s order scheduling the case management conference. The Court’s order warned: 21 22 23 24 25 The Court expects its orders to be followed. The parties are admonished that this is their one, and only, warning. Future noncompliance with the Court’s orders will result in the imposition of sanctions. (Dkt. no. 18, at 2.) Unfortunately, it does not appear the message was received. The order setting the initial case management conference in this action stated: “The parties 26 shall appear in person through lead counsel to discuss all items referred to in this Order and with 27 authority to enter stipulations, to make admissions and to agree to further scheduling dates.” (Dkt. 28 No. 16, at 1 (emphasis added).)
