IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS
CLIFFORD DWAYNE JONES
GARY CURRIE, ET AL.
CIVIL ACTION NO. 9:11cv96
MEMORANDUM ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
OF THE UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
AND ENTERING FINAL JUDGMENT
The Plaintiff Clifford Jones, proceeding pro se, filed this civil rights lawsuit under 42 U.S.C.
§1983 complaining of alleged violations of his constitutional rights during his confinement in the
Smith County Jail. 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 Judges.
On June 2, 2011, the Magistrate Judge ordered Jones to pay the statutory filing fee of $350.00
or to submit an application for leave to proceed in forma pauperis which was accompanied by a
certified inmate trust account data sheet, as required by 28 U.S.C. §1915(b). Jones received a copy
of this order on or before June 10, 2011, but to date, he has not complied, nor has he responded to
this order in any way.
On August 4, 2011, the Magistrate Judge issued a Report recommending that the lawsuit be
dismissed without prejudice for failure to prosecute or to obey an order of the Court. Jones received
a copy of this Report on August 11, 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 Association, 79 F.3d 1415, 1430 (5th Cir. 1996) (en banc).
The Court has carefully reviewed the pleadings and documents in this case, as well as the
Report of the Magistrate Judge. Upon such review, the Court has concluded that the Report of the
Magistrate Judge is correct. It is accordingly
ORDERED that the Report of the Magistrate Judge (docket no. 4) is hereby ADOPTED as
the opinion of the District Court. It is further
ORDERED that the above-styled civil action be and hereby is DISMISSED without prejudice
for failure to prosecute or to obey an order of the Court. It is further
ORDERED that any and all motions which may be pending in this action are hereby
So ORDERED and SIGNED this 23 day of September, 2011.
Ron Clark, United States District Judge
