McNEIL, Respondent. _____________________________________/ REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION This cause is before the court upon referral from the clerk. Petitioner commenced this action by filing a habeas petition under 28 U.S.C. 2254 (Doc. 1). On September 16, 2008, this court entered an order giving Petitioner thirty (30) days in which to file an amended habeas petition on the court-approved form (Doc. 7). Petitioner failed to comply with the order; therefore, on October 21, 2008, the court issued an order requiring Petitioner to show cause, within twenty (20) days, why this action should not be dismissed for failure to comply with an order of the court (Doc. 8). The time for compliance with the show cause order has now elapsed with no response from Petitioner. Accordingly, it is respectfully RECOMMENDED: That this case be DISMISSED without prejudice for Petitioner's failure to comply with an order of the court. At Pensacola, Florida, this 17th day of November 2008. Case No.: 3:08cv306/MCR/EMT /s/ Elizabeth M. Timothy ELIZABETH M.
