UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
Case No. 11-12485
Honorable Sean F. Cox
Carron Caldwell, Raymond D. Booker,
Tina Pope, and Marva Myles,
ORDER DISMISSING PLAINTIFF’S
REMAINING CLAIM FOR FAILURE TO PROSECUTE
Acting pro se, Plaintiff Davis Totten (“Totten”) filed this § 1983 action against
Defendants Carron Caldwell (“Caldwell”), Raymond D. Booker (“Booker”), Tina Pope
(“Pope”), and Marva Myles (“Myles”).
On September 14, 2011, this matter was referred to Magistrate Judge Mark Randon for
determination of all non-dispositive motions pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and Report and
Recommendation pursuant to § 636(b)(1)(B) and (C). (Docket Entry No. 12).
On November 18, 2011, Defendants filed a Motion for Summary Judgment. (Docket
Entry No. 17).
On June 31, 2012, Magistrate Judge Randon issued a Report and Recommendation
(“R&R”) wherein he recommended that the Court grant the Defendants’ Motion for Summary
Judgment in part and deny it in part. The R&R recommended that the Court deny the motion as
to Totten’s claim that Defendant Caldwell violated his First Amendment right by failing to
schedule the Ed-al-Adha prayer service. The R&R recommended that all remaining claims be
dismissed with prejudice. (Docket Entry No. 27).
In an Order issued on September 11, 2012, this Court adopted the R&R and dismissed all
of Plaintiff’s claims with prejudice, with the exception of Plaintiff’s claim that Defendant
Caldwell violated his First Amendment right by failing to schedule the Ed-al-Adha prayer
service. That Order further ordered the parties to appear for a mandatory status conference on
October 2, 2012, at 2:00 p.m. and further cautioned that “failure to appear may result in
sanctions, up to and including dismissal of this action.” (Docket Entry No. 29 at 4) (bolding
Although Defendant appeared for the mandatory status conference on October 2, 2012,
Plaintiff failed to appear. In addition, Plaintiff did not contact the Court prior to or after the
conference and Plaintiff has taken no further action in this case.
Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that Plaintiff’s remaining claim is DISMISSED
IT IS SO ORDERED.
