NORTHERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS
JOSE T. RODRIGUEZ, #1243502,
DR. NORVEL L. ARNOLD, et al.,
Civil Case 3:17-CV-1469-B-BK
ORDER ACCEPTING FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATION
OF THE UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
The United States Magistrate Judge made findings, conclusions and a recommendation in
this case. No objections were filed. The District Court reviewed the proposed findings, conclusions
and recommendation for plain error. Finding none, the Court ACCEPTS the Findings, Conclusions
and Recommendation of the United States Magistrate Judge.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that this action is DISMISSED without prejudice for want
of prosecution. See FED. R. CIV. P. 41(b).
The Court prospectively CERTIFIES that any appeal of this action would not be taken in
good faith. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3); FED. R. APP. P. 24(a)(3). In support of this finding, the
Court adopts and incorporates by reference the Magistrate Judge’s Findings, Conclusions, and
Recommendation. See Baugh v. Taylor, 117 F.3d 197, 202 n.21 (5th Cir. 1997). Based on the
Findings and Recommendation, the Court finds that any appeal of this action would present no legal
point of arguable merit and would, therefore, be frivolous. Howard v. King, 707 F.2d 215, 220 (5th
SO ORDERED this 30th day of August, 2017.
