August 14, 2008
MITCHELL BROWN, PLAINTIFF,
WARDEN WILLIAM SHOUPPE, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge Nora Barry Fischer
Magistrate Judge Bissoon
Mitchell Brown's ("Brown" or "Plaintiff") Complaint filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. §1983 was submitted along with a petition to proceed in forma pauperis on July 2,2008, and was referred to United States Magistrate Judge Francis X. Caiazza for pretrial proceedings in accordance with the Magistrates Act, 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1), and Rules 72.1.3 and 72.1.4 of the Local Rules for Magistrates. The matter has since been referred to Magistrate Judge Cathy Bissoon.
The Magistrate Judge's Report, filed on July 22, 2008, recommended that the action be dismissed without prejudice due to the Plaintiff's failure to either pay the filing fee, or provide a proper documentation for his in forma pauperis status. The parties were allowed ten days from the date of service to file objections. Service was made on Plaintiff by First Class United States Mail at his place of incarceration, the Beaver County Jail. The Plaintiff's objections were due on or before August 7, 2008. None have been filed.
After de novo review of the pleadings and documents in the case, together with the Report and Recommendation, the following ORDER is entered:
AND NOW, this 14th day of August, 2008,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this action is DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.
The Report and Recommendation of Magistrate Judge Caiazza, (Doc. 3), dated July 22, 2008, is adopted as the opinion of the court.
