1 2 3 4 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 5 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 6 7 MASAZUMI INOUE, Case No. 15-cv-1636 YGR 8 Plaintiff, ORDER SETTING COMPLIANCE HEARING 9 vs. 10 BANK OF AMERICA, NATIONAL 11 ASSOCIATION, ET AL., 12 Defendants. Northern District of California United States District Court 13 On July 16, 2015, the Court issued a tentative ruling (Dkt. No. 28) in an attempt to avoid the 14 unnecessary costs of counsel having to appear for oral argument on defendants' motion to dismiss. 15 Counsel for plaintiff filed a request for oral argument (Dkt. No. 29) but then presented no argument. 16 Given the history of this case, and counsel's interactions with the State Bar, the Court is concerned 17 about any attempt to charge or otherwise bill a client for this unnecessary appearance. Plaintiff's 18 counsel shall confirm that no such billing will occur. A compliance hearing regarding counsel's 19 confirmation that no such billing will occur shall be held on Friday, August 14, 2015 on the Court's 20 9:01 a.m. calendar, in the Federal Courthouse, 1301 Clay Street, Oakland, California, Courtroom 1. 21 No later August 7, 2015, plaintiff's counsel shall either file: (a) a statement confirming that no 22 billing shall occur in connection with his appearance on July 21, 2015; or (b) a one-page statement 23 setting forth an explanation for failure to comply. If compliance is complete, counsel need not appear 24 and the compliance hearing will be taken off calendar. Failure to do so may result in sanctions. 25 IT IS SO ORDERED. 26 Dated: July 23, 2015 ____________________________________ 27 YVONNE GONZALEZ ROGERS 28 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT JUDGE
