DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY, et al.,
Case No. 2:16-cv-01150-GMN-CWH
In reviewing the docket in this case, it has come to the court’s attention that the plaintiff has
not filed a motion for a scheduling conference. Local Rule 22-1 provides that in interpleader
actions, “the plaintiff must file a motion requesting that the court set a scheduling conference . . .
within 30 days after the first defendant answers or otherwise appears.” A plaintiff’s failure “to
prosecute the interpleader action by failing to file the motion required by this rule” may result in
dismissal of the action. LR 22-1. Here, Defendant United States of America filed a petition for
removal (ECF No. 1) on May 23, 2016, and an answer (ECF No. 5) on September 20, 2016. To
date, the plaintiff has not filed a motion for a scheduling conference.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that within 21 days from the date of this order, the parties
must meet and confer and plaintiff must file a motion for a scheduling conference that includes
proposed dates when all counsel are available.
DATED: April 5, 2017
