UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
Order Adopting Report and
Recommendation and Dismissing Case
State of Nevada,
[ECF No. 7]
In October 2016, the magistrate judge screened plaintiff’s one-page complaint, found that
it failed to state a claim, and gave plaintiff until November 4, 2016, to file an amended
complaint.1 When plaintiff failed to file an amended complaint by that deadline, the magistrate
judge gave plaintiff until November 28, 2016, to show cause why this case should not be
dismissed for failure to file an amended complaint. Plaintiff was warned that his failure to show
cause in writing by that deadline would result in a recommendation to the district judge that this
case be dismissed.2 The show-cause deadline came and went with no response by the plaintiff,
and on December 8, 2016, the magistrate judge recommended that I dismiss plaintiff’s complaint
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
passed, and plaintiff has not sought an extension of that deadline or otherwise contacted the
court. Accordingly, with good cause appearing,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this case is DISMISSED without prejudice. The Clerk
of Court is directed to close this case.
DATED: December 27, 2016
