Baker v. Jackson County Sheriff's Department et al
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS for 18 Report and Recommendations, as the finding of this Court; and that plaintiffs claims are DISMISSED without prejudice pursuant to FED. R. CIV. P. 41(b) for failure to prosecute. Signed by Chief District Judge Louis Guirola, Jr. on 10/19/17. (RLW)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI
CAUSE NO. 1:17CV34-LG-RHW
JACKSON COUNTY, MISSISSIPPI
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
AND DISMISSING CASE FOR FAILURE TO PROSECUTE
This cause comes before the Court on the Report and Recommendation  of
United States Magistrate Judge Robert H. Walker entered in this cause on October
4, 2017. According to Magistrate Judge Walker’s review of the procedural history of
this case, the plaintiff failed to appear at a duly noticed hearing after informing the
Court that he would be representing himself. Counsel opposite made multiple,
unsuccessful attempts to contact the plaintiff after the plaintiff’s last
communication with the Court on August 28, 2017. The plaintiff was warned by the
Court that his failure to respond to orders would result in dismissal of his claims,
and Magistrate Judge Walker now recommends that this case be dismissed for the
plaintiff’s failure to prosecute and to comply with orders of the Court. The copy of
the Report and Recommendation mailed to the plaintiff by certified mail was
returned as undeliverable. (ECF No. 19).
Because the plaintiff has not objected to Magistrate Judge Walker’s
recommendation that this case be dismissed, the Court need only review the Report
and Recommendation and determine whether it is either clearly erroneous or
contrary to law. United States v. Wilson, 864 F.2d 1219, 1221 (5th Cir. 1989). After
having reviewed the Report and Recommendation and the record in this case, the
Court finds that the Magistrate Judge’s conclusion is neither clearly erroneous nor
contrary to law. Accordingly, it will be adopted by this Court, and plaintiff’s case
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that the Report and
Recommendation  of United States Magistrate Judge Robert H. Walker entered
in this cause on October 4, 2017, should be, and the same hereby is, adopted as the
finding of this Court.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that the plaintiff’s claims
are DISMISSED without prejudice pursuant to FED. R. CIV. P. 41(b) for failure to
SO ORDERED AND ADJUDGED this the 19th day of October, 2017.
