FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

Despite two extensions of time, plaintiff has not opposed the motion. On April 19, 2012, the court granted plaintiff an extension of time to file an opposition or statement of non-opposition and warned plaintiff that failure to do so could result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed. On May 15, 2012, the court granted plaintiff a second extension of time to respond to the motion for summary judgment.*fn1 See Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b). The time for acting has passed and plaintiff has not filed an opposition or a statement of no opposition.
Plaintiff has been warned that he must file a response to defendants' motion. Plaintiff has disobeyed this court's orders and failed to prosecute this action.
Accordingly, it is hereby RECOMMENDED that this action be dismissed without prejudice. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b); E.D. Cal. Local Rule 110.
