The Court thus gave Plaintiff an opportunity on July 19, 2017, to show good cause within fourteen days why this action should not be dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. (Doc. 3). Plaintiff failed to respond and the deadline has passed. Accordingly, it is RECOMMENDED that this action be DISMISSED for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. IT IS SO ORDERED.
