Specifically, the Ninth Circuit panel stated:
A review of the record suggests that this court may lack jurisdiction over the appeal because the notice of appeal was not filed within 30 days after the district court's judgment entered on December 30, 2013. See 28 U.S.C. § 2107(a); Fed. R. App. P. 4(a)(1)(A). Within 21 days after the date of this order, appellant shall move for voluntary dismissal of the appeal or show cause why it should not be dismissed for lack of jurisdiction. If appellant elects to show cause, a response may be filed within 10 days after service of the memorandum. If appellant does not comply with this order, the Clerk shall dismiss this appeal pursuant to Ninth Circuit Rule 42-1. Briefing is suspended pending further order of the court.
