Plaintiff was warned that his failure to show 14 cause in writing by that deadline would result in a recommendation to the district judge that this 15 case be dismissed.2 The show-cause deadline came and went with no response by the plaintiff, 16 and on December 8, 2016, the magistrate judge recommended that I dismiss plaintiff’s complaint 17 without prejudice for failure to prosecute this case and respond to the order to show cause.3 The time for filing an objection to the magistrate judge’s report and recommendation has 18 19 passed, and plaintiff has not sought an extension of that deadline or otherwise contacted the 20 court. Accordingly, with good cause appearing, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this case is DISMISSED without prejudice. The Clerk 21 22 of Court is directed to close this case. DATED: December 27, 2016 23 _______________________________ Jennifer A. Dorsey United States District Judge 24 25 26 27 1 ECF No. 4. 28 2 ECF No. 6. 3 ECF No. 7.
