ALLAN EDGAR REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION Plaintiff filed this pro se civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 1983. On May 19, 2008, defendants filed a motion for summary judgment. On May 29, 2008, plaintiff filed a motion for an extension of time to file a response. Plaintiff's motion was granted and plaintiff was provided until July 17, 2008, to file a response to defendants' motion. Plaintiff was warned that failure to file a response would result in dismissal of this case for failure to prosecute.
