UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
JOSHUA NEIL HARRELL,
No. 2:15-cv-0579 DB P
ORDER AND FINDINGS AND
CALIFORNIA FORENSIC MEDICAL
GROUP, INC., et al.,
Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis with a civil rights action
under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On March 21, 2017, the court dismissed plaintiff’s fourth amended
complaint. (ECF No. 51.) Plaintiff was permitted thirty days to file a fifth amended complaint.
On June 29, 2017, plaintiff moved for an extension of time. On July 11, 2017, the court granted
plaintiff a thirty-day extension of time to file a fifth amended complaint. (ECF No. 57.)
On July 24, 2017, the copy of the July 11 order that was served on plaintiff was returned to
the court as undeliverable because plaintiff was no longer in custody. Based on a change of
address plaintiff filed in another action in this court, the court updated plaintiff’s address to 7217
Franklin Blvd., Ste. 370, Sacramento, CA 95823. On September 11, 2017, a copy of the court’s
July 11 order was re-served on plaintiff at that address. Therefore, any fifth amended complaint
should have been filed within thirty days of the September 11 order.
On October 23, 2017, the court ordered plaintiff to show cause within fourteen days why this
case should not be dismissed for his failure to prosecute it. More than fourteen days have passed
and plaintiff has not responded in any way to the court’s October 23 order.
Accordingly, the Clerk of the Court is HEREBY ORDERED to assign a district judge to this
IT IS HEREBY RECOMMENDED that this case be dismissed for failure to prosecute. See
E.D. Cal. R. 110; Fed. R. Civ. P. 41.
These findings and recommendations will be 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, plaintiff may file written objections
with the court. The document should be captioned “Objections to Magistrate Judge's Findings
and Recommendations.” Plaintiff is advised that failure to file objections within the specified
time may result in waiver of the right to appeal the district court’s order. Martinez v. Ylst, 951
F.2d 1153 (9th Cir. 1991).
