The district court dismissed for lack of prosecution Huffman's 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action on the ground she failed to respond to the court's order to show cause. The record reflects that she did in fact respond. Accordingly, we vacate and remand for further proceedings. See Ferdik v. Bonzelet, 963 F.2d 1258, 1261 (9th Cir.), cert. denied, 113 S.Ct. 321 (1992).



The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. Fed.R.App.P. 34(a); 9th Cir.R. 34-4


This disposition is not appropriate for publication and may not be cited to or by the courts of this circuit except as provided by 9th Cir.R. 36-3
