IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
September 13, 2011
ABINADAB ISRAEL, PLAINTIFF,
JUDGE STEVE W. WHITE, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gregory G. Hollows United States Magistrate Judge
FINDINGS & RECOMMENDATIONS
Despite initiating this case on November 29, 2010, plaintiff has not served defendants with any of the three complaints on file. After an order to show cause issued on June 2, 2011, requiring plaintiff to show cause for failure to serve the complaint within 120 days pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(m), plaintiff responded only by filing a second amended complaint.
In the order to show cause, issued June 2, 2011, plaintiff was informed that the court may dismiss an action where service of summons is not made within 120 days after the filing of the complaint. In the order requiring timely service filed November 29, 2010, plaintiff was cautioned that this action may be dismissed if service was not timely completed. Plaintiff then filed a satisfactory response to the order to show cause.
By order filed June 23, 2011, plaintiff was ordered to serve the second amended complaint within thirty days. Plaintiff was warned that failure to comply with the order would result in a recommendation that this case be dismissed. The thirty day period has now expired, and plaintiff has not served the complaint or otherwise responded to the court's order.
IT IS HEREBY RECOMMENDED that this action be dismissed without prejudice. See Local Rule 110; Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b).
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, 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).
