the parties might resolve the matter. Dkt. No. 12. The Magistrate Judge ordered Plaintiff to
respond to the motion by August 2, 2017. Dkt. No. 14. Plaintiff failed to file a response, so on
August 29, 2017, the Magistrate Judge issued another order in which she instructed Plaintiff to
respond to the motion by September 11, 2017. Dkt. No. 15. The order warned Plaintiff that
failure to comply with the Court’s instructions may result in dismissal of the action. Id. Plaintiff

show why the matter should not be dismissed for failure to prosecute. Dkt. No. 16. Plaintiff’s
response was due by January 10, 2018 and Plaintiff still has not responded to the show cause
order. Therefore, on January 16, 2018, the Magistrate Judge issued the instant Report and
