BRENT A. ROWAN, Plaintiff,
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
CHARMIANE G. CLAXTON, Magistrate Judge.
On July 9, 2014, Plaintiff Brent A. Rowan, a resident of Memphis, Tennessee, filed a pro se complaint pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1983. (D.E.#1.) However, Plaintiff neglected to pay the $400.00 civil filing fee or submit a properly completed application to proceed in forma pauperis.
In an order issued on February 2, 2015, the Court ordered the Plaintiff to file a properly completed application to proceed in forma pauperis or pay the appropriate civil filing fee within thirty (30) days of the entry of the order. (D.E. #3) Plaintiff has not complied with that order and the time set for compliance has expired.
The February 2, 2015 Order provided, in pertinent part, that "[f]ailure to comply with this order in a timely manner will result in dismissal of this action... pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 41(b) for failure to prosecute." Id. See also, Taman v. Chertoff, et al, 07-cv-2247-SHM-dkv, Order of Dismissal (D.E. #4) April 30, 2008. It is therefore RECOMMNDED that Plaintiff's complaint be DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE, pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 41(b) for failure to prosecute.
