IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF WEST VIRGINIA
CIVIL ACTION NO. 1:13cv162
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION [DKT. NO. 7] AND
DISMISSING CASE WITHOUT PREJUDICE FOR FAILURE TO PROSECUTE
(“McAtee”), filed a complaint against the defendant, Jeff James.
(Dkt. No. 1).
On June 28, 2013, the Court provided McAtee with
notice of general guidelines for appearing pro se in federal court
(dkt. no. 2) and notice of deficient pleading (dkt. no. 3), both of
which McAtee accepted on July 3, 2013 (dkt. no. 5).
The notice of
deficient pleading informed McAtee that, among other things, he was
required either to file an application in forma pauperis or to pay
the $400 filing fee.
The notice further advised him that failure
to comply would result in the dismissal of the case, pursuant to
Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b).
The Court referred this matter to the Honorable John S. Kaull,
recommendation (“R&R”) on December 11, 2013, recommending that the
case be dismissed for failure to prosecute. Because McAtee has not
complied with the notice of deficient pleading, nor filed any
objections to the R&R, the Court ADOPTS the R&R and DISMISSES this
case WITHOUT PREJUDICE for failure to prosecute.
It is so ORDERED.
The Court DIRECTS the Clerk to transmit copies of this Order
to counsel of record and the pro se plaintiff, return receipt
requested, and to enter a separate judgment order.
DATED: May 1, 2014.
