United States District Court, W.D. Pennsylvania
December 20, 2005.
ABDUL NEDAB, Plaintiff,
SECRETARY JEFFREY BEARD, et al., Defendants.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: KIM GIBSON, District Judge
This matter was referred to Magistrate Judge Keith A. Pesto for
pretrial proceedings in accordance with the Magistrates Act,
28 U.S.C. § 636(b) (1), and subsections 3 and 4 of Local Rule 72.1
for Magistrate Judges.
The Magistrate Judge sent the plaintiff an Authorization for
the payment of filing fees in accordance with the Prison
Litigation Reform Act on November 23, 2005, docket no. 7,
informing the plaintiff that the filing fee was $250.00.
The plaintiff has not returned the Authorization for the
payment of the filing fee, and the time to do so has expired.
Since plaintiff has not authorized the payment of filing fees and
this is not a matter exempt from such payment, plaintiff's
complaint must be dismissed for failure to prosecute.
After review of the record of this matter, the following order
is entered: AND NOW, this 19th day of December, 2005, it is
ORDERED that the complaint is dismissed for failure to
prosecute. The Clerk shall mark this matter closed.
