STATE OF COLORADO,
COUNTY OF EL PASO, COLORADO,
BLACK FOREST FIRE BOARD, and
DOES, One Through One Hundred,
Filed today is a Motion to Vacate Hearing of Sept. 22, 2014, and Unopposed Motion
to Voluntarily Dismiss Without Prejudice [Doc. # 32, filed 9/19/2014] (the “Motion”).
This action purportedly was brought by 58 individual plaintiffs, pro se. Subsequent
filings have raised doubt about whether all of the purported plaintiffs actually consented or
intended to be joined as plaintiffs in the action. Regardless, by an Order [Doc. # 5], I set the
matter for a hearing on September 22, 2014, at 1:00 p.m., to address whether joinder of the pro
se plaintiffs is appropriate. As a part of the Order, I required each of the pro se plaintiffs to
appear at the hearing in person and stated that “[f]ailure to appear in person may result in the
imposition of sanctions.” Order [Doc. # 5] at p. 3.
The hearing on September 22, 2014, at 1:00 p.m., will occur as previously ordered, the
Motion notwithstanding. All pro se plaintiffs must appear at that time in person.
IT IS ORDERED:
The Motion [Doc. # 32] is DENIED insofar as it seeks to vacate the hearing on
September 22, 2014; and
All pro se plaintiffs must appear at the hearing in person. Failure to appear may
result in the imposition of sanctions.
Dated September 19, 2014.
BY THE COURT:
