Odom v. Ford Motor Company et al
ORDER ADOPTING 13 Report and Recommendation. Signed by Honorable David C. Bramlette, III on 9/6/17. (RRL)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI
CIVIL ACTION NO. 5:16-cv-123-DCB-MTP
FORD MOTOR COMPANY, et al.
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
This cause is before the Court on Magistrate Judge Michael T.
Parker’s Report and Recommendation (docket entry 13), to which no
objections were filed. Having carefully reviewed the same, the
Court finds that dismissal pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil
Procedure 41(b) is warranted. Despite being advised that failure
to comply could result in the dismissal of her civil action,
plaintiff Cordelia Odom (“Odom”) failed to respond to the last two
orders entered by this Court. See Docs. 11, 12. Odom has not
contacted the Court or filed anything of record since early April
when her former attorney filed a Motion to Withdraw as Counsel.1
See Doc. 8. Because the plaintiff has failed in her obligation to
prosecute her case and comply with the Court’s orders, the Court
remaining claims without prejudice.
1 In her motion, Odom’s former counsel informed the Court that, despite
her efforts, she had been unable to reach Odom in the four or five months
preceding the motion. See Doc. 8.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Magistrate Judge Michael T. Parker’s
Report and Recommendation (docket entry 13) is ADOPTED as the
findings and conclusions of this Court;
FURTHER ORDERED that the plaintiff’s claims are dismissed
A Final Judgment dismissing the cause without prejudice will
follow in accordance with Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 58.
SO ORDERED, this the 6th day of September, 2017.
