FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
JOHN EDWARD MITCHELL,
Case No. 1:11-cv-01205 JLT (PC)
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE WHY THIS
ACTION SHOULD NOT BE DISMISSED
PENA, et al.,
Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis with a civil rights action
pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On July 22, 2011, the Court instructed Plaintiff to complete and return
within thirty days the form regarding consent to U.S. Magistrate Judge jurisdiction. (Doc. 3-1.) The
thirty-day period has now expired, and Plaintiff has not filed the consent form or otherwise responded
to the Court’s order.
Accordingly, it is HEREBY ORDERED that within fourteen days from the date of service of
this order, Plaintiff shall show cause in writing why this action should not be dismissed based upon his
failure to comply with a Court order. In addition, if Plaintiff wishes to continue pursuing his claims in
this case, he must complete and return the form regarding consent to U.S. Magistrate Judge jurisdiction.
Otherwise, Plaintiff is advised that this action will be dismissed without prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: September 11, 2011
