VARTAURSE CORNELIOUS PENNS, Plaintiff,
B. THOMPSON, et al., Defendants.
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION TO DISMISS FOR FAILURE TO PROSECUTE
HALIL SULEYMAN OZERDEN, District Judge.
This matter comes before the Court on the Report and Recommendation  of United States Magistrate Judge John C. Gargiulo entered on July 7, 2015. Magistrate Judge Gargiulo reviewed the record and determined that this civil action should be dismissed with prejudice pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(b) for Plaintiff's failure to prosecute, failure to comply with numerous Orders of the Court, and failure to keep the Court apprised of his current address. To date, no objection to the Report and Recommendation has been filed. The Court has thoroughly reviewed the findings in the Report and Recommendation and concludes that the Magistrate Judge properly recommended that this action be dismissed and all remaining pending motions denied as moot.
Where no party has objected to a magistrate judge's report and recommendation, the Court need not conduct a de novo review. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) ("A judge of the court shall make a de novo determination of those portions of the report or specified proposed findings or recommendations to which objection is made."). In such cases, the Court need only determine whether the Report and Recommendation is clearly erroneous or contrary to law. United States v. Wilson, 864 F.2d 1219, 1221 (5th Cir. 1989). Having reviewed the record, the Court finds that the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation thoroughly considered the facts and issues, and is neither clearly erroneous, nor contrary to law.
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that the Report and Recommendation  of Magistrate Judge John C. Gargiulo entered on July 7, 2015, is ADOPTED as the finding of this Court. This civil action will be DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE. A separate Final Judgment will be entered in accordance with Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 58.
IT IS, FURTHER, ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that the Motion to Dismiss  filed by Defendant Wesley Health System, LLC, and the Motion to Dismiss  filed by Defendant Brooke Huff Brown are DENIED AS MOOT.
IT IS, FURTHER, ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that the Clerk shall mail copies of this Order and the Final Judgment entered herewith via certified mail both to Plaintiff's address of record and to the two addresses provided by Defense counsel: 250 Rodenburg, Biloxi, Mississippi, 39530, and 258 Rodenberg, Apt. A, Biloxi, Mississippi 39531.
SO ORDERED AND ADJUDGED.
