CONTEMPT ORDER: On June 30, 2017, the Court held a show cause hearing regarding the certification of contempt. Respondent Ronald Conner appeared, but refused to comply with this Court's order that Respondent produce the documents and information requested in the Government's summons, and otherwise failed to show good cause. Therefore, the Court finds that Ronald Conner should be and is hereby held in contempt of court. Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the Magistrate Judge's findings and conclusions (ECF No. 27) be adopted as the findings and conclusions of the Court. It is FURTHER ORDERED that Petitioner's Motion for Entry of Order of Contempt and for Issuance of Arrest Warrant (ECF No. 17) is GRANTED. It is FURTHER ORDERED that Respondent Ronald Conner is REMANDED to the custody of the United States Marshal to be incarcerated until such time as Respondent purges his contempt. It is FURTHER ORDERED that Petitioner shall file weekly reports regarding whether Respondent has purged his contempt. The hearing set for July 17, 2017, is hereby CANCELED. All further proceedings in this matter are hereby REFERRED to Magistrate Judge Hal Ray. (Ordered by Judge Reed C. O'Connor on 6/30/2017) (skg)

FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS, AND RECOMMENDATION OF THE UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE: Because Respondent Ronald Conner could purge himself of contempt of the Court if he chooses to do so, and because continuing Respondent's incarceration for his failure to comply with Judge O'Connors Order dated June 30, 2017 would be to secure Respondent's compliance with the Court's Order and not be punitive only, the undersigned RECOMMENDS that Judge O'Connor DENY Respondent's Motion to Vacate Contempt Order and Response to Court's Order Dated August 31, 2017 (ECF No. 62). (Ordered by Magistrate Judge Hal R. Ray, Jr on 9/14/2017) (plp)
