The magistrate judge issued an order, Filing No. 10, on September 19, 2011, ordering the
plaintiff to report to court on or before September 26, 2011, or show cause why sanctions
should not be imposed on the plaintiff for failing to meet and confer and for failing to file
a planning report. Defendant’s counsel indicated they tried to contact the plaintiff’s counsel
on multiple occasions and have received no response. Filing No. 10. The court received
no response. Consequently, the magistrate judge issued his findings and recommendation
that this court dismiss the case for failure to comply with court orders as set forth in

THEREFORE, IT IS ORDERED that plaintiff’s complaint is dismissed without
prejudice. Any costs are assessed against the plaintiff. The findings and recommendation
of the magistrate judge, Filing No. 11, is adopted in its entirety.
