Lamarcus Alexander Stewart, Jr., PLAINTIFF, v. Richard Jenkins, Anita James, John R. Pate, Walter Worrick, McKendley Newton, DEFENDANTS.


REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION

Plaintiff Lamarcus Alexander Stewart, appearing pro se and in forma pauperis, brings this action under Title 42, United States Code, Section 1983. On March 19, 2019, Defendants filed a Motion for Summary Judgment. (Dkt. No 40.) On March 20, 2019, this Court issued an Order pursuant to Roseboro v. Garrison, 528 F.2d 309 (4th Cir. 1975), advising Plaintiff of the dismissal procedure and the possible consequences if he failed to adequately respond to the motion. (Dkt. No. 43.) Despite the explanation in the Roseboro Order, Plaintiff did not respond.

As Plaintiff is proceeding pro se, the Court filed an Order on April 26, 2019, giving Plaintiff through May 17, 2019, to file his response to the Motion for Summary Judgment. (Dkt. No. 45.) Plaintiff was specifically advised that if he failed to respond, this action would be dismissed. Plaintiff did not respond.

Based on the foregoing, it appears Plaintiff no longer wishes to pursue this action. Accordingly, it is recommended that this action be dismissed with prejudice for lack of prosecution and for failure to comply with this Court's orders, pursuant to Rule 41(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the factors outlined in Chandler Leasing Corp. v. Lopez, 669 F.2d 919, 920 (4th Cir. 1982). See Ballard v. Carlson, 882 F.2d 93 (4th Cir. 1989).

IT IS SO RECOMMENDED
