the file to the Court for review;
(5) In the event plaintiffs fail to file a signed amended complaint within twenty (20)
days from the date of the filing of this Decision and Order, the Clerk shall enter judgment
dismissing this action without prejudice pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B)(ii)-(iii) due to
plaintiff's failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted and for failure to comply
with the terms of this Decision and Order, without further Order of this Court.
