On May 15, 2014, the court granted plaintiff an 25 additional 30 days within which to file an amended complaint, on or before Monday, June 16, 26 2014.1 27 28 (ECF No. 22.)

For the reasons stated in the court’s April 10, 2014 order, concerning the deficiencies in 3 plaintiff’s original complaint (ECF No. 18 at 3-4), and due to plaintiff’s failure to abide by the 4 orders of this court directing the filing of an amended complaint (ECF Nos. 18, 22), the 5 undersigned recommends the dismissal of this action without prejudice. 6 7 8 9 Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Clerk of Court is directed to randomly assign a district judge to this case. Further, IT IS HEREBY RECOMMENDED that this action be dismissed without prejudice. See Local Rule 110; Fed. R. Civ.
