1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 9 EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 10 11 MARTIN WARE, 14 15 ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE WHY ACTION SHOULD NOT BE DISMISSED FOR FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH A COURT ORDER AND FAILURE TO STATE A COGNIZABLE CLAIM FOR RELIEF Plaintiff, 12 13 Case No. 1:16-cv-01531-AWI-SAB (PC) v. CHRISTIAN PFEIFFER, et al., (ECF No. 13) Defendants. 16 17 Plaintiff Martin Ware is appearing pro se and in forma pauperis in this civil rights action 18 pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. 19 On April 4, 2017, the Court screened and dismissed Plaintiff’s complaint filed on 20 October 11, 2016, with leave to file an amended complaint within thirty days from the date of 21 service of the order. Over thirty days have passed and Plaintiff has failed to file an amended 22 complaint in this action. The Court notes that on May 11, 2017, the Court filed a first amended 23 complaint in this action; however, the Court subsequently determined that the complaint was 24 improperly filed in this action as it was an amended complaint to be filed in case number 1:1625 cv-01302-DAD-SAB (PC), Ware v. Bitter. On May 16, 2017, the Court disregarded the 26 amended complaint and directed the Clerk of Court to file the complaint in case number 1:16-cv27 01302-DAD-SAB (PC), Ware v. Bitter. 28 1 Based on Plaintiff’s failure to file an amended complaint in this case, there is no pleading 1 2 on file which sets forth any claims upon which relief may be granted. Accordingly, Plaintiff is 3 directed to show cause within thirty (30) days from the date of service of this order why the 4 action should not be dismissed for failure to comply with a court order and failure to state a 5 cognizable claim for relief. Failure to comply with this order will result in a recommendation 6 that the action be dismissed. 7 8 IT IS SO ORDERED. 9 Dated: May 18, 2017 UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
