LAURENCE HOUGHTON, Plaintiff,
EARL HEART, et al., Defendant.
GREGORY F. VANTATENHOVE, District Judge.
This matter is before the Court upon the report and recommendation of Magistrate Judge Edward B. Atkins. [R. 7.] Houghton originally sought to proceed in forma pauperis in this matter, but his motion was denied and he was ordered to either pay the filing fee or to file the proper in forma pauperis forms before June 26, 2015. [R. 3, 5.] Houghton was warned that his case would be dismissed if he did not comply with that Order. [R. 5.] Nevertheless, Houghton did not comply. As a result, and in accordance with the power delegated to him in 18 U.S.C. § 636(b), the Magistrate Judge recommends that the case be dismissed. [R. 7.] Houghton was given 14 days to object to that recommendation. [ Id. ] The Court has received no objection.
ACCORDINGLY, it is hereby ORDERED that the Magistrate Judge's recommendation is ADOPTED. [R. 7.] The present action is DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE for failure to prosecute and STRICKEN from the docket.
