UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
April 8, 2011
OSVALDO CORDERO, PLAINTIFF,
V.L.M., INC., ET AL.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: John Gleeson, United States District Judge
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
This matter arises from a motion by William Cafaro ("Cafaro") to withdraw as counsel for plaintiff Osvaldo Cordero ("Cordero"). The motion was referred to Magistrate James Orenstein. After Cordero failed, as directed, to appear on two occasions, Magistrate Judge Orenstein ordered Cordero to show cause as to why this action should not be dismissed for failure to prosecute. When Cordero, despite receiving an extension of time, failed to respond, Magistrate Judge Orenstein issued a report and recommendation ("R&R") recommending that the Court sua sponte dismiss this action, with prejudice, pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(b).
No objections have been filed. Because I agree with the reasoning and conclusion of Judge Orenstein's R&R, I adopt the R&R.*fn1 Accordingly, this action is dismissed, with prejudice, pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(b). I direct Cafaro, Cordero's counsel of record, to serve a copy of this Order, as well as translation, on Cordero, and to file proof of service no later than April 14, 2011.
JOHN GLEESON, U.S.D.J.
