June 25, 2009
TIMOTHY J. OGSBURY, PLAINTIFF,
ONEBEACON INS. GROUP, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Randolph F. Treece United States Magistrate Judge
REPORT-RECOMMENDATION and ORDER
On January 12, 2009, pro se Plaintiff Timothy Ogsbury initiated two separate civil actions in this Court against Defendant OneBeacon Insurance Group. See Civ. Nos. 1:09-CV-35 (RFT/TJM) & 1:09-CV-36 (GLS/RFT). At the time Plaintiff initiated these actions, he sought permission to proceed in forma pauperis.*fn1 On February 25, 2009, this Court issued an Order which, inter alia, consolidated Plaintiff's two pending actions, with case number 1:09-CV-35 designated as the lead case, and denied Plaintiff's Motions to Proceed In Forma Pauperis. Dkt. No. 4. We directed Plaintiff to pay the entire filing fees required in both cases in order for these matters to proceed. Id. at pp. 2-3. We further advised that "unless [Plaintiff] pays the $350.00 filing fees in full for both actions within thirty (30) days of the filing date of [that] Order, this Court [would] recommend dismissal of this action." Id. at p. 3 (emphasis in original). More than three months have elapsed since the Court issued that Order and Plaintiff has not yet paid the required fees; his failure to submit the required fees warrants dismissal of these matters. N.D.N.Y.L.R. 5.2(a).
WHEREFORE, it is hereby
RECOMMENDED, that the above entitled actions be DISMISSED due to Plaintiff's failure to comply with the Court's Order and pay the filing fees in full; and it is further
ORDERED, that the Clerk of the Court serve a copy of this Report-Recommendation and Order upon the parties to this action.
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1), the parties have ten (10) days within which to file written objections to the foregoing report. Such objections shall be filed with the Clerk of the Court.
FAILURE TO OBJECT TO THIS REPORT WITHIN TEN (10) DAYS WILL PRECLUDE APPELLATE REVIEW. Roldan v. Racette, 984 F.2d 85, 89 (2d Cir. 1993) (citing Small v. Sec'y of Health and Human Servs., 892 F.2d 15 (2d Cir. 1989)); see also 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); FED. R. CIV. P. 72, 6(a), & 6(e).
