UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
JOHN DOE WARDEN, et al.,
ORDER ADOPTING FINDINGS AND
RECOMMENDATIONS AND DISMISSING
ACTION FOR FAILURE TO PROSECUTE
AND FAILURE TO OBEY A COURT
(Doc. No. 14)
Plaintiff Ruben Gil is a former state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis in
this civil rights action 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 May 17, 2019, the assigned magistrate judge screened plaintiff’s complaint pursuant to
28 U.S.C. § 1915A and determined that it failed to state a cognizable claim for relief. (Doc. No.
13.) Plaintiff was granted leave to file a first amended complaint attempting to cure the
deficiencies identified by the magistrate judge within thirty days. (Id. at 15.) Plaintiff was
warned that his failure to file an amended complaint in compliance with the screening order
would result in dismissal of this action. (Id.) More than thirty days have passed, but to date,
plaintiff has not filed a first amended complaint.
Therefore, on July 11, 2019, the magistrate judge issued findings and recommendations,
recommending dismissal of this action, with prejudice, due to plaintiff’s failure to state a
cognizable claim upon which relief may be granted, failure to obey a court order, and failure to
prosecute this action. (Doc. No. 14.) The 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 17.) 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 adopts the
findings and recommendations.
The findings and recommendations issued on July 11, 2019 (Doc No. 14) are
This action is dismissed due to plaintiff’s failure to obey a court order and failure
to prosecute; and
The clerk of the court is directed to close this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
