UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
No. 1:21-cv-00138-DAD-BAM (PC)
DONNY YOUNGBLOOD, et al.,
ORDER ADOPTING FINDINGS AND
RECOMMENDATIONS AND DISMISSING
(Doc. No. 15)
Plaintiff Victor Cedillos is a former county jail inmate and current 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 April 20, 2021, 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 (30) days after service of that
screening order. (Id. at 9.) Plaintiff was warned that his failure to file a first amended complaint
in compliance with the screening order would result in a recommendation that this action be
dismissed for failure to obey a court order and failure to state a claim. (Id. at 9–10.) To date,
Case 1:21-cv-00138-DAD-BAM Document 16 Filed 07/19/21 Page 2 of 2
plaintiff has not filed an amended complaint or a notice of voluntary dismissal, and the time in
which to do so has passed.
Accordingly, on June 21, 2021, the magistrate judge issued findings and recommendations
recommending that this action be dismissed due to plaintiff’s failure to obey a court order, failure
to prosecute this action, and failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted. (Doc. No.
15.) 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 11.) 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.
The findings and recommendations issued on June 21, 2021 (Doc No. 15) are
This action is dismissed, without prejudice, due to plaintiff’s failure to prosecute
this action and failure to obey a court order; and
The Clerk of the Court is directed to close this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
