IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA TALLAHASSEE DIVISION
MARIA ELDA SANCHEZ RAMIREZ, Plaintiff, vs. WARDEN PAIGE AUGUSTINE, et al., Defendants. _____________________________________/ REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION This cause is before me upon referral from the Clerk. In an order filed November 25, 2008, Plaintiff was directed to advise the court that she no longer intended to pursue this action or, alternatively, she was directed to file the amended complaint as previously directed by December 23, 2008. Doc. 8. To date, Plaintiff has not responded. A trial court has inherent power to dismiss a case sua sponte for failure to prosecute. Link v. Wabash R.R., 370 U.S. 626, 82 S.Ct. 1386, 8 L.Ed.2d 734 (1962). Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b) authorizes a district court to dismiss an action for failure to obey a court order. Moon v. Newsome, 863 F.2d 835, 838 and cases cited (11th Cir.), cert. 4:08cv450-MP/WCS

denied, 493 U.S. 863 (1989). Since Plaintiff has failed to comply with an order or to prosecute this case, his complaint should now be dismissed without prejudice. Plaintiff shall have a 15 day period after service of this report and recommendation in which to file objections. This will also afford Plaintiff a final opportunity to show good cause for his failure to respond. Plaintiff may do so by filing a motion for reconsideration which will be referred to me by the Clerk. It is therefore, respectfully RECOMMENDED that this case be DISMISSED without prejudice. IN CHAMBERS at Tallahassee, Florida, on January 6, 2009.
