Judge Conti/ Magistrate Judge Bissoon
The above-captioned pro se prisoner civil rights action filed by Charles Whitney ("Plaintiff") was received by the Clerk of Court on December 20, 2010, and was referred to a magistrate judge for pretrial proceedings in accordance with the Magistrate Judges Act, 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1), and Local Civil Rules 72.C and D.
The magistrate judge's Report and Recommendation, ECF No. , filed on February 9, 2011, recommended that the case be dismissed due to Plaintiff's failure to prosecute and/or obey a court order, which required Plaintiff to either pay the filing fee or file a motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis. Service of the Report was made on the Plaintiff at his address of record. Plaintiff was informed that, in accordance with the Magistrate Judges Act, 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) and (C), and the local rules, he had a specific period of time in which to file his objections. Plaintiff filed no objections.
Accordingly, after de novo review of the pleadings and the documents in the case, together with the Report and Recommendation, the following order is entered:
AND NOW, this 30th day of March, 2011,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the case is dismissed with prejudice for Plaintiff's failure to obey a court order.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Report and Recommendation, ECF No. , filed on February 9, 2011 by Magistrate Judge Cathy Bissoon, is adopted as the opinion of the Court. The Clerk is to mark the case closed.
