ORDER FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
This case, in which plaintiff is proceeding pro se, is before the undersigned pursuant to Eastern District of California Local Rule 302(c)(21). See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). On June 10, 2010, defendants removed the action to this court from Sacramento County Superior Court on the ground that plaintiff's complaint alleges federal claims, and on June 21, 2010, moved to dismiss plaintiff's complaint. Dckt. Nos. 2, 9. Defendants noticed the motion for hearing on August 4, 2010. Dckt. No. 9. On July 27, 2010, because plaintiff had not filed either an opposition or a statement of non-opposition to the motion, the court continued the hearing on defendants' motion to dismiss to September 22, 2010; ordered plaintiff to show cause, in writing, no later than September 8, 2010, why sanctions should not be imposed for her failure to timely file an opposition or a statement of non-opposition to the pending motion; and directed plaintiff to file an opposition to the motion, or a statement of non-opposition thereto, no later than September 8, 2010. Dckt. No. 11. The court further stated that "[f]ailure of plaintiff to file an opposition will be deemed a statement of non-opposition to the pending motion, and may result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed for lack of prosecution. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b)." Id.
Although the deadlines have now passed, the court docket reflects that plaintiff has not filed a response to the order to show cause, an opposition to defendants' motion, or a statement of non-opposition to the motion. In light of plaintiff's failures, the undersigned recommends that this action be dismissed for failure to prosecute and that defendants' motion to dismiss be denied as moot. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b); L.R. 110.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The hearing date of September 22, 2010 on defendants' motion to dismiss, Dckt. No. 9, is vacated; and
2. The status (pretrial scheduling) conference currently set for hearing on October 20, 2010, is vacated.*fn1
IT IS FURTHER RECOMMENDED that:
1. This action be dismissed pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(b), based on plaintiff's failure to prosecute the action;
2. Defendants' motion to dismiss, Dckt. No. 9, be denied as moot; and
3. The Clerk be directed to close this case.
