DATE: 10/19/06
ORDER: Order
DESCRIPTION: ORDER Based on a review of the record and recognizing that dismissal is an extreme sanction, the Court hereby orders: 1. Oliver Brown (Civil Case 06-1572) shall comply with the Court's January 31, 2006 Order and respond to Guidant's motion to dismiss no later than seven (7) days from the date of this Order. If Brown fails to do so, the Court will find that Brown acted in bad faith for failing to comply with the Court's January 31, September 20, and October 19, 2006 Orders. The Court will then immediately dismiss Brown's case with prejudice. 2. Federal courts possess the inherent power to sanction misconduct. See Chambers v. NASCO, Inc., 501 U.S. 32, 43 (1991). As a direct result of Brown's disregard of the Court's January 31, 2006 Order, Guidant has incurred unnecessary attorney fees and expenses in filing its motion to dismiss. For that reason and under the Court's inherent powers, the Court orders Brown to reimburse Guidant $1,000 for reasonable attorney fees and expenses incurred as a result of his misconduct. Brown shall make this payment to Guidant no later than seven (7) days from the date of this Order.

If Bowman fails to do so, the Court will find that Bowman acted in bad faith for failing to comply with the Court's January 31, September 6, September 18, and October 10, 2006 Orders. The Court will then immediately dismiss Bowman's case with prejudice. Federal courts possess the inherent power to sanction misconduct. See Chambers v. NASCO, Inc., 501 U.S. 32, 43 (1991). As a direct result of Bowman's disregard of the Court's September 18, 2006 Order, Guidant has incurred additional unnecessary attorney fees and expenses in filing its motion to dismiss. For that reason and under the Court's inherent powers, the Court orders Bowman to reimburse Guidant $1,000, in addition to the $1,000 sanction imposed in the September 18, 2006 Order, for reasonable attorney fees and expenses incurred as a result of his misconduct.
