IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA TALLAHASSEE DIVISION
ALBERT NEWMAN, Plaintiff, vs. WILLIAM MEGGS, et al, Defendants. / CASE NO. 4:08CV59-MP/AK
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION By Order dated May 22, 2008, Plaintiff was directed to show cause on or before June 5, 2008, why this case should not be dismissed for failure to file an amended motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis. (Doc. 9). There has been no response to the order or other communication from the Plaintiff. A trial court has inherent power to dismiss a case sua sponte for failure to prosecute. Link v. Wabash Railroad, 370 U.S. 626, 82 S. Ct. 1386, 8 L.Ed2d 734 (1962). Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b) also authorizes a district court to dismiss an action for failure to obey a court order. Plaintiff has failed to comply with two orders of this Court or otherwise prosecute this action. (Docs. 6 and 9).
