UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
MARCUS LAMAR JOHNSON,
Case No. 1:14-cv-01672-LJO-SKO HC
FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATION
THAT THE COURT DISMISS THE CASE
FOR FAILURE TO PROSECUTE
Petitioner Marcus Lamar Johnson is a federal prisoner proceeding with a petition for writ of
habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241. On July 10, 2017, the copy of an order mailed to
Petitioner was returned to the Clerk marked "undeliverable, unable to forward."
Local Rule 183 provides:
A party appearing in propria persona shall keep the Court and opposing parties
advised as to his or her current address. If mail directed to a plaintiff in propria
persona by the Clerk is returned by the U.S. Postal Service, and if such Plaintiff
fails to notify the Court and opposing parties within sixty-three (63) days
thereafter of a current address, the Court may dismiss the action without prejudice
for failure to prosecute.
Although more than sixty-three (63) days have elapsed from the date of the return of the
order mailed to Petitioner, Petitioner has failed to advise the Court of his current address or
contacted the Court in any other way. The Court has discretion to impose any and all sanctions
authorized by statute or rule or within the inherent power of the Court, including dismissing the
motion, based on a petitioner’s failure to comply with a court rule. F.R.Civ.P. 11; Local R. 110.
Conclusion and Recommendation
Accordingly, the undersigned RECOMMENDS that as a result of Petitioner’s failure to
prosecute the case, the Court dismiss with prejudice the motion for reconsideration in the abovecaptioned action.
These Findings and Recommendations will be submitted to the United States District Judge
assigned to the case, pursuant to the provisions of 28 U.S.C ' 636(b)(1). Within thirty (30) days
after being served with these Findings and Recommendations, Petitioner may file written objections
with the Court. The document should be captioned AObjections to Magistrate Judge=s Findings and
Recommendations.@ Petitioner is advised that failure to file objections within the specified time may
constitute waiver of the right to appeal the District Court's order. Wilkerson v. Wheeler, 772 F.3d
834, 839 ((9th Cir. 2014) (citing Baxter v. Sullivan, 923 F.2d 1391, 1394 (9th Cir. 1991)).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
