Gordon W. Rogers, Plaintiff-appellant, v. United States Internal Revenue Service; District Director;united States of America, Defendants-appellees, 8 F.3d 29 (9th Cir. 1993)Annotate this Case
Submitted Oct. 6, 1993. *Decided Oct. 21, 1993
Before: BEEZER, KOZINSKI, and KLEINFIELD, Circuit Judges.
Previously, in a case similar to this appeal, we sanctioned Rogers $1500 for filing a frivolous appeal in which he sought to enjoin the Internal Revenue Service from attempting to collect unpaid income tax and penalties. See Rogers v. United States, No. 91-35132, unpublished memorandum (9th Cir. Feb. 3, 1992). It appears that Rogers has failed to pay the assessed sanction. Accordingly, we dismiss this appeal for failure to comply with this court's previous order. See Hymes v. United States, 993 F.2d 701, 701-02 (1993) ("courts have inherent power to dismiss actions for nonpayment of cost ... [including] a litigant's failure to pay previously imposed sanctions") (citations omitted).
