Case 5:21-cv-08204-SVK Document 37 Filed 11/21/22 Page 1 of 1 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 1 2 SCOTT JOHNSON, 3 4 United States District Court Northern District of California Plaintiff, ORDER RE RESPONSES TO ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE v. 5 PARAMJIT KAUR, et al., 6 Defendants. 7 Case No. 21-cv-08204-SVK On July 28, 2022, Plaintiff filed a notice stating that this case had settled and that Plaintiff 8 expected the settlement would be consummated within 60 days and a dismissal would be filed. 9 Dkt. 28. The Court issued an Order to Show Cause re Settlement (“OSC”), with the hearing set 10 for September 27, 2022. Dkt. 29. At Plaintiff’s request, the OSC hearing has been continued 11 twice. Dkt. 31, 33. In both instances, Plaintiff filed a response to the OSC stating that the 12 settlement agreement had been signed. Dkt. 30, 32. In Plaintiff’s September 12, 2022 response to 13 OSC, Plaintiff stated that he expected to file a dismissal within 60 days. Dkt. 30. In Plaintiff’s 14 October 10, 2022 response to OSC, Plaintiff stated that the case would be ripe for dismissal “in 15 approximately thirty (30) days from updated show cause/dismissal deadline of October 18, 2022.” 16 Dkt. 32. The OSC hearing is currently scheduled for November 22, 2022. See Dkt. 33. 17 On November 18, 2022, Plaintiff filed a response to OSC stating that he “anticipates filing 18 a dismissal within the coming sixty (60) days.” Dkt. 35. Plaintiff’s latest response to OSC is 19 inadequate because it inconsistent with his previous estimates of when a dismissal will be filed 20 and does not explain the shifting timeline. However, Defendant’s response to OSC states that the 21 last settlement payment was mailed to Plaintiff’s counsel on November 18, 2022. Dkt. 36. 22 Accordingly, the Court will grant one final continuance of the OSC to December 13, 2022 at 23 10:00 a.m. A dismissal is due by December 6, 2022. 24 25 SO ORDERED. Dated: November 21, 2022 26 27 28 SUSAN VAN KEULEN United States Magistrate Judge
