D E FE N D A N T
R E P O R T AND RECOMMENDATION OF THE MAGISTRATE JUDGE Plaintiff, Samuel Robinson, filed this civil rights action pursuant to the provisions of 42 U .S .C . § 1983 on May 1, 2009. He proceeds pro se and in forma pauperis. When he filed the case, R o b in so n was incarcerated in the Crawford County Detention Center. A t the time Robinson filed the action, he was informed that he had an obligation under the ru les of this court to keep the court informed of any changes in his address. Rule 5.5 of the Local R u les of the Eastern and Western Districts of Arkansas. On May 6, 2009, all mail sent to Robinson a t the Crawford County Detention Center was returned as undeliverable. Robinson failed to p ro v id e the court with his new address. A court staff member was unable to obtain a home address for Robinson from the detention cen ter. Robinson was listed as homeless on intake materials. Robinson also listed on his complaint "1 3 1 8 8 9 ADC." This appeared to be a number with the Arkansas Department of Correction (A D C ). However, a search of the website maintained by the ADC came back with no inmate reco rd s matching this number. Robinson has not contacted the court since he filed the complaint on May 1st. The court h as not had a valid address on Robinson since at least May 6th when all mail was returned as u n d eliv erab le. I therefore recommend that this action be dismissed based on Robinson's failure to -1 -

Robinson has ten days from receipt of the report and recommendation in which to file written objections pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). The failure to file timely objections may result in waiver of the right to appeal questions of fact. Robinson is reminded that objections must be both timely and specific to trigger de novo review by the district court.
