IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS
JOE HEATH, ET AL.
CIVIL ACTION NO. 6:16cv1272
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
Plaintiff Hubert Seaton, previously an inmate confined at the Smith County Jail,
proceeding pro se, filed the above-styled and numbered civil rights lawsuit pursuant to 42 U.S.C.
§ 1983. The complaint was referred to United States Magistrate Judge K. Nicole Mitchell, who
issued a Report and Recommendation (Dkt. #13) concluding that the lawsuit should be dismissed
for want of prosecution and failure to obey an order. As of today, Mr. Seaton has neither responded
nor complied with the order. The case should thus be dismissed for want of prosecution and failure
to obey an order.
The Report of the Magistrate Judge, which contains her proposed findings of fact and
recommendations for the disposition of such action, has been presented for consideration, and no
objections being raised by Mr. Seaton to the Report, the Court is of the opinion that the findings
and conclusions of the Magistrate Judge are correct. It is therefore
ORDERED that the complaint is DISMISSED without prejudice for want of prosecution
and failure to obey an order of the court. Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b); Rule 41, Local Rules for the Eastern
District of Texas. All motions not previously ruled on are DENIED.
So Ordered and Signed
