FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS JIM FOLEY, et al. Defendants. 16 17 18 Plaintiff, who proceeds without counsel, has filed numerous cases in this district, many of 19 which appear to have been dismissed for abandonment and/or failure to comply with court orders. 20 After plaintiff filed the instant action, on November 8, 2018, the court denied plaintiff’s 21 motion to proceed in forma pauperis, and directed plaintiff to either pay the applicable filing fee 22 or submit a properly-completed motion to proceed in forma pauperis within 28 days. (ECF No. 23 3.) Plaintiff was expressly cautioned that failure to either pay the filing fee or submit a properly- 24 completed motion to proceed in forma pauperis by the applicable deadline would be deemed to 25 be plaintiff’s abandonment of the action and would result in dismissal of the action. (Id.) 26 Although the applicable deadline has now passed, plaintiff failed to pay the filing fee or 27 submit a properly-completed motion to proceed in forma pauperis, nor did she request an 28 extension of time to do so based on any articulated cause. 1 1 Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY RECOMMENDED that: 2 1. The action be dismissed without prejudice. 3 2. The Clerk of Court be directed to close this case. 4 These findings and recommendations are submitted to the United States District Judge 5 assigned to the case, pursuant to the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(l). Within fourteen (14) 6 days after being served with these findings and recommendations, any party may file written 7 objections with the court and serve a copy on all parties. Such a document should be captioned 8 “Objections to Magistrate Judge’s Findings and Recommendations.” Any reply to the objections 9 shall be served on all parties and filed with the court within fourteen (14) days after service of the 10 objections. The parties are advised that failure to file objections within the specified time may 11 waive the right to appeal the District Court’s order. Turner v.
