The undersigned previously entered an Order on September 7, 2017 (Docket No. 11),
requiring Plaintiff to file with the Court a written explanation showing cause for his failure to
prosecute this action. The Order required Plaintiff to file such explanation on or before
September 15, 2017, and it also stated in pertinent part, “…his failure to respond to the order
may cause the undersigned to recommend that his complaint be dismissed.”
As of the date of the filing of this Report and Recommendation, Plaintiff has failed to
comply with the Court’s previous Order. The Court also notes that the previous referenced
Order entered on September 7, 2017, by the undersigned was returned to the Clerk’s Office as
“Refused/Unable to Forward”. Docket No. 12. Therefore, the undersigned recommends that
this action be dismissed without prejudice.

days after service of this Report and Recommendation in which to file any written objections to
the Recommendation with the District Court. Any party opposing said objections shall have
fourteen (14) days after service of any objections filed to this Report in which to file any
response to said objections. Failure to file specific objections within fourteen (14) days of service
of this Report and Recommendation can constitute a waiver of further appeal of this
Recommendation. See Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 106 S.Ct. 466, 88 L. Ed. 2d 435 (1985), reh’g
