IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
No. 2:12-cv-2729 JAM EFB P
J. DEFAZIO, et al.,
FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding without counsel in an action brought under 42
U.S.C. § 1983. This proceeding was referred to this court by Local Rule 302 pursuant to 28
U.S.C. § 636(b)(1).
On May 8, 2013, the court dismissed plaintiff’s complaint. The dismissal order
explained the complaint’s deficiencies, gave plaintiff 30 days to file an amended complaint
correcting those deficiencies, and warned plaintiff that failure to file an amended complaint
would result in this action being dismissed for failure to state a claim. The time for acting has
passed and plaintiff has not filed an amended complaint or otherwise responded to the court’s
A party’s failure to comply with any order or with the Local Rules “may be grounds for
imposition by the Court of any and all sanctions authorized by statute or Rule or within the
inherent power of the Court.” E.D. Cal. Local Rule 110. The court may recommend that an
action be dismissed with or without prejudice, as appropriate, if a party disobeys an order or the
Local Rules. See Ferdik v. Bonzelet, 963 F.2d 1258, 1263 (9th Cir. 1992) (district court did not
abuse discretion in dismissing pro se plaintiff’s complaint for failing to obey an order to re-file
an amended complaint to comply with Federal Rules of Civil Procedure); Carey v. King, 856
F.2d 1439, 1440-41 (9th Cir. 1988) (dismissal for pro se plaintiff’s failure to comply with local
rule regarding notice of change of address affirmed).
Accordingly, it is hereby RECOMMENDED that this action be dismissed for failure to
state a claim and failure to prosecute. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915A; Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b); E.D. Cal.
Local Rule 110.
These findings and recommendations are submitted to the United States District Judge
assigned to the case, pursuant to the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(l). Within fourteen days
after being served with these findings and recommendations, any party may file written
objections with the court and serve a copy on all parties. Such a document should be captioned
“Objections to Magistrate Judge’s Findings and Recommendations.” Failure to file objections
within the specified time may waive the right to appeal the District Court’s order. Turner v.
Duncan, 158 F.3d 449, 455 (9th Cir. 1998); Martinez v. Ylst, 951 F.2d 1153 (9th Cir. 1991).
