ANTHONY SHANTE RONEY
SGT. FLOWERS, ET AL.
CIVIL ACTION NO. 6:11cv498
MEMORANDUM ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
OF THE UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
AND ENTERING FINAL JUDGMENT
The Plaintiff Anthony Roney, proceeding pro se, filed this civil rights lawsuit under 42
U.S.C. §1983 complaining of alleged violations of his constitutional rights in the Texas Department
of Criminal Justice, Correctional Institutions Division. This Court ordered that the case be referred
to the United States Magistrate Judge pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §636(b)(1) and (3) and the Amended
Order for the Adoption of Local Rules for the Assignment of Duties to United States Magistrate
The Magistrate Judge ordered Roney to pay the filing fee of $350.00 or submit an inmate
trust account data sheet certified by an authorized official of the prison, but Roney did not comply
with this order. The Magistrate Judge thereupon issued a Report recommending that the lawsuit be
dismissed for failure to prosecute or to obey an order of the Court. Roney received a copy of this
Report on December 1, 2011, but filed no objections thereto; accordingly, he is barred from de novo
review by the district judge of those findings, conclusions, and recommendations and, except upon
grounds of plain error, from appellate review of the unobjected-to factual findings and legal
conclusions accepted and adopted by the district court. Douglass v. United Services Automobile
