FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS,
RECOMMENDING THAT THIS ACTION
BE DISMISSED, WITH PREJUDICE, FOR
FAILURE TO STATE A CLAIM UPON
WHICH RELIEF MAY BE GRANTED
OBJECTIONS, IF ANY, DUE IN THIRTY
Aaron Thornton (“Plaintiff@) is a state hospital patient proceeding pro se and in forma
pauperis in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. ' 1983. Plaintiff filed the Complaint
commencing this action on February 24, 2014. (Doc. 1.)
On June 19, 2014, the Court dismissed Plaintiff=s Complaint for failure to state a claim,
with leave to file an Amended Complaint within thirty days. (Doc. 11.) 28 U.S.C. ' 1915A; 28
U.S.C. ' 1915(e). To date, Plaintiff has not complied with or otherwise responded to the
Court=s order.1 As a result, there is no pleading on file which sets forth any claims upon which
relief may be granted.
On June 27, 2014, the U.S. Postmaster returned the court’s order to the court as undeliverable, with the
notation “no such name.” (Court Record.) On June 30, 2014, the order was re-served upon Plaintiff at a new
address. (Court Record.) On July 10, 2014, the mail was again returned to the court as undeliverable. (Court
Record.) Plaintiff has not notified the court of any change in his address. Absent such notice, service at a party=s
prior address is fully effective. Local Rule 182(f).
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY RECOMMENDED that pursuant to 28 U.S.C. ' 1915A
and 28 U.S.C. ' 1915(e), this action be DISMISSED, with prejudice, based on Plaintiff=s failure
to state a claim upon which relief may be granted under section 1983, and that this dismissal be
subject to the Athree-strikes@ provision set forth in 28 U.S.C. ' 1915(g). Silva v. Vittorio, 658
F.3d 1090, 1098 (9th Cir. 2011).
These findings and recommendations are submitted to the United States District Judge
assigned to the case, pursuant to the provisions of Title 28 U.S.C. ' 636(b)(l). Within thirty
days after being served with these findings and recommendations, Plaintiff may file written
objections with the court. Such a document should be captioned "Objections to Magistrate
Judge's Findings and Recommendations." Plaintiff is advised that failure to file objections
within the specified time 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.
