EBRAHIM M. MUSSA, Plaintiff,
CYNTHIA L. TAMPKINS, et al., Defendants.
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION OF UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
CHARLES F. EICK, Magistrate Judge.
This Report and Recommendation is submitted to the Honorable Terry J. Hatter, Jr., United States District Judge, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. section 636 and General Order 05-07 of the United States District Court for the Central District of California.
Plaintiff, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, filed this civil rights action on August 28, 2014, in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California. On September 4, 2014, the United States District Court for the Southern District of California transferred the action to this Court. By Memorandum and Order filed September 25, 2014, the Court dismissed the complaint with leave to amend. The Memorandum and Order allowed Plaintiff to file a First Amended Complaint within thirty (30) days of September 25, 2014. The Memorandum and Order cautioned Plaintiff that failure to file a timely First Amended Complaint could result in the dismissal of this action. Plaintiff did not file a First Amended Complaint within the allotted time.
The action should be dismissed without prejudice. The complaint is defective for the reasons stated in the Memorandum and Order. Plaintiff has failed to file a First Amended Complaint within the allotted time. The Court has inherent power to achieve the orderly and expeditious disposition of cases by dismissing actions for failure to prosecute. Link v. Wabash R.R., 370 U.S. 626, 629-30 (1962); see Fed.R.Civ.P. 41(b).
For all of the foregoing reasons, IT IS RECOMMENDED that the Court issue an Order: (1) accepting and adopting this Report and Recommendation; and (2) directing that Judgment be entered dismissing the action without prejudice.

The Court accepts and adopts the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation.
IT IS ORDERED that Judgment shall be entered dismissing the action without prejudice.
