FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
JEROME MARKIEL DAVIS,
No. 1:18-cv-00832-DAD-BAM (PC)
ORDER ADOPTING FINDINGS AND
RECOMMENDATIONS AND DISMISSING
(Doc. No. 43)
Plaintiff Jerome Markiel Davis is proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis in this civil
rights action filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. This matter was referred to a United States
Magistrate Judge pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) and Local Rule 302.
On June 22, 2020, defendant D. Roberts filed a motion for summary judgment. (Doc. No.
40.) After plaintiff failed to oppose or file a statement of non-opposition to the pending motion
for summary judgment, on July 27, 2020, the assigned magistrate judge issued an order to show
cause why this action should not be dismissed due to plaintiff’s failure to prosecute the action.
(Doc. No. 42.) The order to show cause required plaintiff to respond within twenty-one (21)
days, and warned plaintiff that failure to comply with the order will result in this matter being
dismissed with prejudice for failure to prosecute. (Id. at 2.) Plaintiff did not respond to the order
to show cause or otherwise communicate with the court.
Accordingly, on September 1, 2020, the magistrate judge issued the pending findings and
recommendations, recommending that this action be dismissed due to plaintiff’s failure to obey a
court order and failure to prosecute. (Doc. No. 43.) The pending findings and recommendations
were served on plaintiff and contained notice that any objections thereto were to be filed within
fourteen (14) days after service. (Id. at 4.) To date, no objections to the findings and
recommendations have been filed, and the time in which to do so has now passed.
In accordance with the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C), this court has conducted a
de novo review of the case. Having carefully reviewed the entire file, the court concludes that the
findings and recommendations are supported by the record and by proper analysis.
