Steven Floyd Bourn v. People of the State of California

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA


May 26, 2011

STEVEN FLOYD BOURN, PLAINTIFF,
v.
PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.

FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

This action in which plaintiff is proceeding in propria persona and in forma pauperis, is before the undersigned pursuant to Eastern District of California Local Rule 302(c)(21). See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). On April 15, 2011, the court dismissed plaintiff's complaint for failure to state a claim, with leave to amend, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2). Dckt. No. 6. The dismissal order explained the complaint's deficiencies, gave plaintiff 30 days to file an amended complaint correcting those deficiencies, and warned plaintiff that failure to file an amended complaint would result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed.

The 30-day period has expired and plaintiff has not filed an amended complaint or appropriately responded to the court's order. On May 6, 2011, plaintiff filed a document titled "Standing Objection," which references the April 15 order, but does not excuse plaintiff's failure to file an amended complaint. Dckt. No. 7. In that filing, plaintiff claims that the defendants are n default and that any orders or findings of the undersigned would be "refused" by plaintiff "for good cause shown."*fn1 Dckt. No. 7 at 8. Plaintiff has not requested an extension of time or otherwise indicated that he intends to file an amended complaint.

Accordingly, it is hereby RECOMMENDED that this action be dismissed without prejudice, and that the Clerk be directed to close this case. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b); E.D. Cal. .R. 110.

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 fourteen 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).
