ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE
DONNA M. RYU, Magistrate Judge.
Defendant Nationstar Mortgage LLC filed a motion to dismiss on May 24, 2017. Currently, the motion is set for a court hearing on June 29, 2017. Plaintiff Bradfield Thompson is pursuing this action without legal representation. According to the local court rules, Plaintiff should have filed any brief in opposition to Defendant's motion by June 7, 2017. See Civ. L.R. 7-3(a). The court has received no such opposition.
The court ORDERS Plaintiff to respond by June 22, 2017 and explain in writing his failure to respond to the motion. In addition, Plaintiff must simultaneously (1) submit his opposition to the court or (2) file a statement of non-opposition to the motion. This order to show cause does not indicate that the court will necessarily accept Plaintiff's late submission. If Plaintiff does not respond by June 22, 2017, Defendant's motion may be granted or the case may be dismissed for failure to prosecute.
Additionally, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636, the undersigned cannot decide Defendant's motion unless all parties consent to proceed before a Magistrate Judge. Plaintiff has not yet filed a consent or declination to Magistrate Judge jurisdiction. Plaintiff shall complete the attached form documenting either consent or request for reassignment and file it with the court by June 22, 2017. Plaintiff is free to withhold consent to proceed before a Magistrate Judge without adverse substantive consequences. Plaintiff shall also supply his telephone number when he files the attached form.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
