(Dkt. No. 13.) On November 2, 2015, Plaintiff 16 filed an untitled document that the undersigned construed as a response to the order to show cause. 17 (Dkt. No. 14.) Therein, Plaintiff stated that he mailed the lawsuit and related documents in early- 18 June. Id. at 2. Plaintiff did not file a certificate of service. 19 On December 9, 2016, the Court discharged the order to show cause and ordered Plaintiff 20 to file a certificate of service on or before December 31, 2015. (Dkt. No. 16.) Plaintiff was advised 21 that if he could not recall the date and all information concerning the June 2015 attempt to serve 22 the complaint by mail, he should again serve all documents and file a certificate of service by 23 December 31, 2015. Id. 24 To date, Plaintiff has not filed a certificate of service. Accordingly, Plaintiff shall SHOW 25 CAUSE on or before May 27, 2016 by (1) explaining why he did not file a certificate of service 26 by December 31, 2015 as previously ordered, and by (2) filing a certificate of service. These must 27 be filed as separate documents. The failure to timely respond and timely file a certificate of 28 service may result in the dismissal of this case for failure to prosecute. 1 The Court notes that Plaintiff has filed a variety of documents and "statements" that 2 include purported evidence of Defendant's wrongdoing. (See Dkt. Nos. 17-26.) These are 3 improper filings and are stricken.
