Coughenour, United States District Judge: This matter comes before the Court sua sponte. On April 24, 2017, the Court ordered 18 Plaintiffs to show cause why their claims against Defendants R.

Plaintiffs were 20 directed to respond to the show cause order prior to the status conference set for May 2, 2017, or 21 to come to the status conference prepared to address this issue. (Id. at 1-2.) Plaintiffs submitted 22 no response and it does not appear Plaintiffs raised the issue at the status conference. (See Dkt. 23 No. 70.) More than two months later, no further action has been taken to prosecute the claims. 24 Plaintiffs’ counsel is unavailable through Tuesday, July 11, 2017. (Dkt. No. 71 at 1.) 25 Accordingly, the Court gives Plaintiffs until Friday, July 14, 2017 to sufficiently address the 26 show cause order (Dkt. No. 69). If Plaintiffs fail to do so, the claims against the MINUTE ORDER C16-0620-JCC PAGE - 1 1 aforementioned Defendants will be dismissed for failure to prosecute.
