IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
January 29, 2009
DUDLEY JACKLINE, PLAINTIFF,
CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS AND REHABILITATION, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
This action was opened as a prisoner civil rights complaint based on a letter written by plaintiff addressed to District Judge Lawrence K. Karlton.*fn1 The matter was referred to a United States Magistrate Judge pursuant to Eastern District of California local rules.
On December 8, 2008, the Magistrate Judge filed findings and recommendations herein which were served on the parties and which contained notice that the parties may file objections within a specified time. No objections to the findings and recommendations have been filed.
The court has reviewed the file de novo, and accepts the Magistrate Judge's recommendation to dismiss this action without prejudice, not as a sanction for plaintiff's failure to comply with the court's order to either file a formal complaint on the form provided by the court or file a request for voluntary dismissal, but because the court construes plaintiff's inaction, in light of the warning that failure to comply could result in dismissal of the action, to mean that plaintiff has no interest in pursuing this action nnor any objection to its dismissal.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this action be, and the same hereby is, DISMISSED without prejudice.
