The opinion of the court was delivered by: Sandra M. Snyder United States Magistrate Judge
FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS RECOMMENDING THAT COMPLAINT BE DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE FOR FAILURE TO PROSECUTE (Doc. 46)
On November 17, 2011, the Court entered an order, returnable on December 21, 2011, requiring Plaintiff to show cause why the complaint in this matter should not be dismissed for failure to prosecute. Plaintiff's attorney Yan Shrayberman appeared on behalf of himself and attorney Mario DiSalvo; Brande Lynn Gustafson appeared for Defendants. Plaintiff Benicia Fuentes did not personally appear.
As is documented in the record and will not be further detailed in this order, because Plaintiff's counsel have been unable to locate Plaintiff Benicia Fuentes, guardian ad litem for minor Plaintiffs L.G. and J.G., despite repeated and exhaustive efforts, counsel are unable to proceed in the prosecution of this case. Having heard argument and having reviewed in detail the case record and applicable law, the undersigned recommends that this case be dismissed without prejudice for failure to prosecute.
These Findings and Recommendations will be submitted to the Honorable Lawrence J. O'Neill, United States District Judge, pursuant to the provisions of 28 U.S.C § 636(b)(1). Within fourteen days (14) days after being served with these Findings and Recommendations, any party may file written objections with the Court. Any such document should be captioned "Objections to Magistrate Judge's Findings and Recommendations." Each party is advised that, by failing to file objections within the specified time, she or he may waive the right to appeal the District Court's order. Martinez v. Ylst, 951 F.2d 1153 (9th Cir. 1991).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
