Jones-Bey v. Bolton
ORDER signed by Senior Judge Charles R. Simpson, III on 11/9/2017, ACCEPTING AND ADOPTING Magistrate Judge's 26 Report and Recommendations. Complaint is DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE FOR FAILURE OF THE PLAINTIFF TO PROSECUTE THE ACTION. cc: Plaintiff, pro se; Counsel(RLK)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF KENTUCKY
GARY LAMAR JONES-BEY
CIVIL ACTION NO. 3:16CV-484-CRS
This matter is before the court for consideration of the Report and Recommendation of
the United States Magistrate Judge that the complaint herein be dismissed with prejudice for
failure to prosecute (DN 26). Despite repeated attempts by the magistrate judge to obtain the
participation of this pro se plaintiff and move the case forward, plaintiff has failed to comply
with the orders of the court and has failed to appear at two scheduled hearings. The magistrate
judge noted that there has been no return mail and there is no indication that plaintiff has not
received notice of all court orders in the case.
As noted in the magistrate judge’s report, the parties failed to participate in a planning
meeting or file a report with the court as initially ordered. The court again ordered the parties to
engage in Fed.R.Civ.P. 26 planning, and afforded an additional month to do so, but to no avail.
The magistrate judge then scheduled a hearing regarding the parties’ failure to comply with the
court’s orders. The plaintiff did not appear. Defense counsel appeared, and filed a planning
report on behalf of the defendant, indicating that plaintiff had refused contact. The magistrate
judge then scheduled a hearing for the plaintiff to show cause why the matter should not be
dismissed for failure to prosecute the action. Again, the plaintiff failed to appear or otherwise
respond to the court’s order.
The magistrate judge issued his report which was, again, sent by the clerk to the
plaintiff’s address of record.
The fourteen-day period in which to file objections to the
magistrate judge’s Report and Recommendation has expired without response from the plaintiff.
Therefore, the Report and Recommendation of the United States Magistrate Judge (DN
26) is ACCEPTED AND ADOPTED IN ITS ENTIRETY and the complaint herein is
DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE
PROSECUTE THE ACTION.
There being no reason for delay in its entry, this order shall constitute the final judgment
of the court.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
