Borden v. Harrison County
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS for 24 Report and Recommendations. Ordered that this case is dismissed without prejudice. Signed by District Judge Louis Guirola, Jr on 9/14/20. (JCH)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI
CAUSE NO. 1:19cv563-LG-RPM
ORDER ADOPTING PROPOSED FINDINGS OF FACT AND
RECOMMENDATION AND DISMISSING LAWSUIT
FOR FAILURE TO PROSECUTE
BEFORE THE COURT are the  Proposed Findings of Fact and
Recommendation entered by United States Magistrate Judge Robert P. Myers, Jr.,
in which he recommends dismissal of Plaintiff Mark Borden’s 42 U.S.C. § 1983
complaint for failure to prosecute.
At the time Borden filed this lawsuit, he was incarcerated at the Harrison
County Adult Detention Center in Gulfport, Mississippi. Judge Myers entered the
Proposed Findings recommending dismissal after Borden failed to appear at the
omnibus hearing conducted on August 26, 2020. The copy of the Minute Entry
regarding the Omnibus hearing and the copy of the Proposed Findings mailed to
Borden were returned to the Court as undeliverable. A search conducted on the
Mississippi Department of Corrections’ website reveals that Borden is no longer
incarcerated. Therefore, the Court has no way of contacting Borden. The Court
previously informed Borden that failure to advise the court of a change of address
may result in sua sponte dismissal of his lawsuit without further notice. (Order, at
2, ECF No. 3.)
Where no party has objected to the Magistrate Judge’s report and
recommendation, the Court need not conduct a de novo review of it. See 28 U.S.C. §
636(b)(1) (“A judge of the court shall make a de novo determination of those portions
of the report or specified proposed findings and recommendations to which objection
is made.”). In such cases, the Court need only satisfy itself that there is no clear
error on the face of the record. Douglass v. United Serv. Auto Ass’n, 79 F.3d 1415,
1420 (5th Cir. 1996). Having conducted the required review, the Court finds that
Judge Myers’ Proposed Findings of Fact and Recommendation is neither clearly
erroneous nor contrary to law. This lawsuit is dismissed without prejudice for
failure to prosecute.
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED AND ADJUDGED the  Proposed
Findings of Fact and Recommendation entered by United States Magistrate Judge
Robert P. Myers, Jr., are ADOPTED as the opinion of the Court. This lawsuit is
DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.
SO ORDERED AND ADJUDGED this the 14th day of September, 2020.
Louis Guirola, Jr.
