Case 6:19-cv-01111-JWB Document 81 Filed 09/10/20 Page 1 of 2 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF KANSAS JOSE DIAZ CERDA, Plaintiff, v. Case No. 19-1111-JWB CILLESSEN & SONS, INC., Defendant. ORDERTO SHOW CAUSE In an order entered August 5, 2020, the undersigned U.S. Magistrate Judge, James P. O’Hara, granted defendant’s motion to sanction plaintiff’s counsel, Trinidad Galdean, based on his conduct during two recent depositions (ECF No. 74). The court ordered Mr. Galdean to reimburse defendant for its costs associated with the depositions and briefing the motion for sanctions. Plaintiff was ordered to “remit this payment to defendant by August 26, 2020, and promptly file a certificate confirming said payment.”1 Plaintiff has not filed a certificate confirming payment of the sanction—which was due more than two weeks ago. On September 4, 2020, the undersigned’s law clerk sent Mr. Galdean a courtesy e-mail (copying defense counsel), reminding him of the 1 ECF No. 74 at 15 (emphasis in original). The court directed the parties to attempt to reach agreement on the amount to be paid, but set deadlines for briefing the issue should agreement not be reached. Id. The deadlines have passed without submission, so presumably the parties have reached agreement as to amount. 1 O:\ORDERS\19-1111-JWB-SCO.docx Case 6:19-cv-01111-JWB Document 81 Filed 09/10/20 Page 2 of 2 certification-filing requirement.
