WCH, Inc., dba WINCHESTER CONVALESCENT HOSPITAL, dba SAN JOSE SUBACUTE CARE, Appellant, v. FREDERICK S. WYLE, Chapter 11 Trustee, Appellee. No. C-08-05331 RMW ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE On November 25, 2008, the court received WCH's notice of appeal from the bankruptcy court's order approving the trustee's sale of substantially all of the estate's assets. See Docket No. 3. On December 5, 2008, the trustee Wyle counter-designated portions of the record for appeal. Docket No. 1; but see Docket No. 5 (Feb. 11, 2009) (which appears to be a duplicate of docket entry no. 1). WCH has not filed an opening brief. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 United States District Court For the Northern District of California 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 As the confused order of the docket entries indicate, the court cannot clearly discern the status of WCH's appeal. Pursuant to Bankruptcy Local Rule 8010-1(a)(1), WCH should have filed its opening brief within 30 days of the docketing of its appeal, i.e., in December of 2008. Accordingly, the court enters the following order: 1. WCH shall file its opening brief by March 13, 2009 and further briefing shall be filed pursuant to Bankruptcy Local Rule 8010-1(a); or 2. WCH shall show cause why it should not be required to file its opening brief by March 13, 2009. A failure by WCH to file its opening brief by March 13 or show cause why its brief should not be filed by that date will result in the court issuing an order to show cause why the appeal should not be dismissed for want of prosecution.
