O

















UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT

CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA


LUKE ADAM and CHANDRA MARIE
ADAM,




UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE,




Defendant.

Plaintiffs,






v.







Case No. 8:05-cv-00987-ODW(RNBx)

ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE RE.
RULE 11 SANCTIONS

On September 5, 2013, the Court issued an Order to Requesting Status Report,
which required the parties to submit a joint status report by September 17, 2013.
(ECF No. 84) This joint status report was to set forth a discussion on how the parties
perceive the case should go forward, including any stipulations or points of
disagreement, and a proposed schedule for retrial, including dates for the pretrial
conference, hearing on motions in limine, and deadlines for the required pretrial
filings. (Id.) On September 17, 2013 the Court received Defendant’s separate report,
which was submitted in place of the joint report “because defendant’s counsel has
been unable to contact plaintiffs’ counsel in connection with the preparation of the
report.” (ECF No. 85.)

Plaintiffs have failed to comply with the Court’s Order. To date, Plaintiffs have
not filed a status report with the Court, let alone the joint status report that they were

ordered to prepare. The Court ORDERS Plaintiffs to file an individual Status Report
with the Court by September 27, 2013. Additionally, the Court ORDERS the
Plaintiffs to SHOW CAUSE in writing by September 27, 2013, why Plaintiffs
should not be sanctioned for violating Rule 11(b)(2). No hearing will be held. Failure
to timely file will result in sanctions of $1,000.00 and may result in dismissal of the
action for lack of prosecution.
