UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
Case No. 1:17cv131
Butler County Jail, et al.,
Judge Michael R. Barrett
This matter is before the Court on the Report and Recommendation filed by the
Magistrate Judge on May 10, 2017 (Doc. 7).
Proper notice has been given to the parties under 28 U.S.C. ' 636(b)(1)(C),
including notice that the parties would waive further appeal if they failed to file objections
to the Report and Recommendation in a timely manner. United States v. Walters, 638
F.2d 947 (6th Cir. 1981). The Court notes, however, that though such notice was
served upon Petitioner, it was returned to the Court due to Petitioner=s failure to apprise
the Court of his change of address (Doc. 8). By failing to keep the Court apprised of his
current address, Petitioner demonstrates a lack of prosecution of his action. See, e.g.,
Theede v. United States Department of Labor, 172 F.3d 1262, 1265 (10th Cir.
1999)(Failure to object to a Magistrate Judge=s Report and Recommendation due to
delay resulting from party=s failure to bring to the court=s attention a change in address
constitutes failure to object in a timely manner. Because the Recommendation was
mailed to the last known address, it was properly served, and party waived right to
appellate review). See also Jourdan v. Jabe, 951 F.2d 108, 109 (6th Cir. 1991)(A pro se
litigant has an affirmative duty to diligently pursue the prosecution of his cause of action);
Barber v. Runyon, No. 93-6318, 1994 WL 163765, at *1 (6th Cir. May 2, 1994) (A pro se
litigant has a duty to supply the court with notice of any and all changes in his address).
No objections to the Magistrate Judge=s Report and Recommendation (Doc. 7) have
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the Report and Recommendation (Doc. 7) of the
Magistrate Judge is hereby ADOPTED and this matter is DISMISSED for lack of
IT IS SO ORDERED.
