IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
September 8, 2009
RALPH BLASINGAME, PETITIONER,
J.W. HAVILAND, DEFENDANT.
ORDER AND FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding without counsel in an action brought under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. This proceeding was referred to this court by Local Rule 72-302 pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1).
On July 17, 2009, the court found that plaintiff had failed to pay the filing fee required by 28 U.S.C. § 1914(a) or a request to proceed in forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a). Plaintiff was granted thirty days in which to pay the filing fee or file an application to proceed in forma pauperis and was warned plaintiff that failure to comply would result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed.
The 30-day period has expired and plaintiff has not paid the filing fee, filed a completed in forma pauperis application or complaint, or otherwise responded to the court's order.
Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED that the Clerk shall randomly assign a United States District Judge to this case; and
Further, it is hereby RECOMMENDED that this action be dismissed without prejudice. 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).
