United States District Court, W.D. Pennsylvania
December 5, 2014
WILLIE D. JOHNSON, III, Plaintiff,
PA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS, et al, Defendants.
NORA BARRY FISCHER, District Judge.
Before the Court is the Report and Recommendation of Magistrate Judge Cynthia Reed Eddy who has recommended that this action be dismissed for Plaintiff's failure to follow the Court's Order of August 28, 2014, requiring him to pay an initial partial filing fee of $95.95. In her Report, she notes that Plaintiff has also failed to respond to the Court's Order dated October 15, 2014, to show cause why this case should not be dismissed for failure to pay the required fee.
Plaintiff was served with the Report and Recommendation and informed that he had until December 1, 2014, to file written objections. As of the date of this Order, Plaintiff has neither filed objections nor paid any portion of the filing fee. In fact, the Court has not received any correspondence or filings from Plaintiff since August 26, 2014, when he resubmitted his Motion for Leave to Proceed in forma pauperis . It appears as though Plaintiff has no interest in pursuing this matter any further. Therefore, 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 5th day of December, 2014,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this case is DISMISSED without prejudice.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Report and Recommendation (ECF No. 7) is ADOPTED as the opinion of the Court.
AND IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of Court mark this case CLOSED.
