UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
DENO E. WOODIS,
Case No. 1:16-cv-01660-AWI-SKO HC
FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATION
THAT THE COURT DISMISS THE
PETITION FOR FAILURE TO PROSECUTE
On July 1, 2016, Petitioner Deno E. Woodis filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus in the
U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. The petition was transferred to the Eastern
District on November 3, 2016. On November 9, 2016, the copy of an order mailed to Petitioner was
returned to the Clerk marked "undeliverable, no such name."
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 action, based on a petitioner’s
failure to comply with a court rules. 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, without prejudice, the petition for writ of habeas corpus in the
above-captioned 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)).
