UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
MARY LEE FORTNER,
Case No. 2:17-cv-01908-JCM-PAL
COSTCO WHOLESALE CORPORATION,
This matter is before the court on plaintiff’s failure to file a Certificate as to Interested
Parties as required by LR 7.1-1. The Complaint in this matter was filed June 20, 2017 in state
court. Defendant filed an Answer (ECF No. 3) and removed the case to federal district court July
7, 2017. LR 7.1-1(a) requires, unless otherwise ordered, that in all cases (except habeas corpus
cases) counsel for private parties shall, upon entering a case, identify in the disclosure statement
required by Fed. R. Civ. P. 7.1 all persons, associations of persons, firms, partnerships or
corporations (including parent corporations) which have a direct, pecuniary interest in the outcome
of the case. LR 7.1-1(b) further states that if there are no known interested parties other than those
participating in the case, a statement to that effect must be filed. Additionally, LR 7.1-1(c) requires
a party to promptly file a supplemental certification upon any change in the information that this
rule requires. To date, plaintiff has failed to comply. Accordingly,
IT IS ORDERED plaintiff shall file her certificate of interested parties, which fully
complies with LR 7.1-1 no later than October 6, 2017. Failure to comply may result in the
issuance of an order to show cause why sanctions should not be imposed.
DATED this 22nd day of September, 2017.
PEGGY A. LEEN
UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
