Plaintiff Jeffrey Works ("Plaintiff") is a state prisoner proceeding pro se in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Plaintiff filed this action on January 25, 2010. (Doc. 1.) On February 5, 2010, Plaintiff consented to Magistrate Judge jurisdiction in this action, and no other parties have made an appearance. (Doc. 5.) Therefore, pursuant to Appendix A(k)(4) of the Local Rules of the Eastern District of California, the undersigned shall conduct any and all proceedings in the case until such time as reassignment to a District Judge is required. Local Rule Appendix A(k)(3).
On March 22, 2011, the undersigned 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.8.) Plaintiff was granted three thirty-day extensions of time to file the amended complaint. (Docs. 10, 12, 14.) The latest thirty-day time period has expired, and 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.
