IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
August 28, 2008
LEO ARCHER AKA RICKY THOMAS, PLAINTIFF,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
FINDINGS & RECOMMENDATIONS
Plaintiff, a person who is civilly committed, is proceeding without counsel with a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On May 12, 2008, and again on August 18, 2008, the postal service returned mail directed to plaintiff marked "return to sender, unable to forward," and "RTS - Not in custody" respectively.
A party appearing without counsel must keep the court and all parties apprised of his current address. L.R. 83-183(b). If mail directed to such a plaintiff is returned by the postal service and plaintiff fails to notify the court and opposing parties within 60 days thereafter of his current address, the court may dismiss the action without prejudice for failure to prosecute. Id.
More than 60 days have passed since the postal service returned the court's April 30, 2008, order and plaintiff has not notified the court of his current address.
Accordingly, it is hereby RECOMMENDED that this action be dismissed. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b); Local Rule 11-110; Local Rule 83-183(b).
These findings and recommendations are submitted to the United States District Judge assigned to the case, pursuant to the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(l). Within twenty days after being served with these findings and recommendations, any party may file written objections with the court and serve a copy on all parties. Such a document should be captioned "Objections to Magistrate Judge's Findings and Recommendations." Failure to file objections within the specified time may waive the right to appeal the District Court's order. Turner v. Duncan, 158 F.3d 449, 455 (9th Cir. 1998); Martinez v. Ylst, 951 F.2d 1153 (9th Cir. 1991).
