Plaintiff is advised 22 that the failure to file an opposition shall constitute consent to the granting of Defendants' 23 requested relief, including sanctions to reimburse the costs incurred due to Plaintiff's prior 24 nonappearance. (See Judge Westmore's Standing Order ¶ 22.) 25 IT IS SO ORDERED. 26 Dated: March 15, 2017 __________________________________ 27 KANDIS A. WESTMORE 28 United States Magistrate Judge
