DION MARTELL KING, PLAINTIFF,
AVENAL STATE PRISON, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gary S. Austin United States Magistrate Judge
FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS, RECOMMENDING THAT THIS ACTION BE DISMISSED, WITH PREJUDICE, FOR FAILURE TO STATE A CLAIM UPON WHICH RELIEF MAY BE GRANTED OBJECTIONS, IF ANY, DUE WITHIN THIRTY DAYS
Plaintiff Dion Martell King ("Plaintiff") is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis with this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Plaintiff filed this action on August 28, 2007, at the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. (Doc. 2.) On August 31, 2007, the case was transferred to the Eastern District of California and received at this court on September 5, 2007. (Doc. 1.)
On March 4, 2009, the court dismissed Plaintiff's complaint for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted and gave Plaintiff leave to file an amended complaint within thirty days.
28 U.S.C. § 1915A; 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e). (Doc.12.) To date, Plaintiff has not complied with or otherwise responded to the Court's order. As a result, there is no pleading on file which sets forth any claims upon which relief may be granted under section 1983.
Accordingly, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915A and 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e), the undersigned HEREBY RECOMMENDS that:
1. This action be dismissed with prejudice, based on Plaintiff's failure to state any claims upon which relief may be granted under section 1983; and
2. The Clerk be DIRECTED to close this case.
These Findings and Recommendations will be submitted to the United States District Judge assigned to the case, pursuant to the provisions of Title 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(l). Within thirty (30) days after being served with these Findings and Recommendations, Plaintiff may file written objections with the Court. The document should be captioned "Objections to Magistrate Judge's Findings and Recommendations." Plaintiff is advised that failure to file objections within the specified time may waive the right to appeal the District Court's order. Martinez v. Ylst, 951 F.2d 1153 (9th Cir. 1991).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
