United States District Court, S.D. Georgia, Savannah Division
March 2, 2015
ROSE MARIE SINGLETARY, Claimant,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Commissioner of Social Security, Defendant.
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
G. R. SMITH, Magistrate Judge.
Proceeding pro Se, Rose Marie Singletary filed a form complaint seeking judicial review of an adverse disability claim decision by the Social Security Administration. Doc. 1. She also requested leave to proceed in forma pauperis. The Court granted the motion but directed her to cure some material deficiencies in her case. Doc. 5 at 2 (citing, inter alia, Rose v. Colvin, 2014; WL 5034608 at * 2 (S.D. Ga. Oct. 8, 2014) ("Here, Plaintiff provides absolutely no information concerning any administrative proceedings before the Social Security Administration, let alone does she state that she presented any particular claim for benefits to the Commissioner for a final decision. Accordingly, Plaintiff has not met the prerequisites for judicial review, and her case must be dismissed.")). It warned of dismissal for noncompliance. Id. at 4.
In that plaintiff has failed to respond, her case should be DISMISSED on both abandonment and jurisdictional grounds. S.D. Ga. LR 41(b); see Link v. Wabash Railroad Co., 370 U.S. 626, 630-31 (1962) (courts have the inherent authority to dismiss claims for lack of prosecution); Mingo v. Sugar Cane Growers Co-op, 864 F.2d 101, 102 (11th Cir. 1989); Jones v. Graham, 709 F.2d 1457, 1458 (11th Cir. 1983); Floyd v. United States, No. CV491-277 (S.D. Ga. June 10, 1992); doc. 5 at 3-4 (citing subject matter jurisdiction cases).
SO REPORTED AND RECOMMENDED.
