Case 2:20-cv-00537-WJ-KRS Document 27 Filed 02/18/21 Page 1 of 1
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEW MEXICO
MARIA E. ESPARZA,
No. 2:20-CV-537 WJ/KRS
Commissioner of the Social Security Administration,
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE
This matter is before the Court sua sponte. Plaintiff filed a Complaint June 3, 2020,
appealing the final decision of the Social Security Administration, which denied her claim for
benefits. (Doc. 1). On December 4, 2020, the Court set a briefing schedule and ordered
Plaintiff to file a Motion to Reverse or Remand Administrative Agency Decision no later than
January 29, 2021. (Doc. 20). Plaintiff has neither filed a Motion to Remand nor requested an
extension of time to do so. A district court has inherent power to dismiss a case sua sponte for
failure to prosecute or for failure to comply with a court order. See Link v. Wabash R.R. Co.,
370 U.S. 626, 629-31 (1962); Olsen v. Mapes, 333 F.3d 1199, 1204 n.3 (10th Cir. 2003).
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that on or before March 4, 2021, Plaintiff shall either
file a Motion to Reverse or Remand Administrative Agency Decision with a supporting
memorandum of law, or file a response to this Order showing cause why this case should not be
dismissed without prejudice for failure to prosecute her claim.
