ORDER: The plaintiff's motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis 8 is granted. The court authorizes and orders the trust fund officer at the plaintiff's place of incarceration to deduct $5.17 from the plaintiff's account for payment to the Clerk of Court as an initial partial filing fee, and to continue making monthly deductions in accordance with this order. The clerk is directed to: (1) send a copy of this order to the trust fund officer at the Dixon Correctional Center; (2) issue summonses for service on defendants Godinez, Williams, and Enloe by the U.S. Marshal; (3) mail the plaintiff three blank USM-285 (Marshals service) forms, a Magistrate Judge Consent Form, and Instructions for Submitting Documents along with a copy of this order. The plaintiff's motion for an order to show cause for a preliminary injunction and temporary restraining order 10 is denied without prejudice for the reasons stated herein. The plaintiff's motion for service of process at government expense 5 is granted to the extent that the U.S. Marshal is appointed to serve defendants. The court advises the plaintiff that a completed USM-285 (Marshals service) form is required for each named defendant. The Marshal will not attempt service on the defendants unless and until the required forms are received. Therefore, the plaintiff must complete service forms for each defendant and return those forms to the Clerk of Court in care of the Prisoner Correspondent within 28 days of the date of this order. The plaintiff's motions for attorney representation [4, 9, 12] are denied without prejudice. [See STATEMENT] Signed by the Honorable Frederick J. Kapala on 3/20/2015. Mailed notice (jp, )

ORDER, REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS Status hearing held on 1/15/2015. Plaintiff was not present. It is this Court's Report and Recommendation that the case be dismissed for want of prosecution due to the plaintiffs failure to appear in court, the plaintiffs failure to notify the Court of his location and the defendants representation that the plaintiff would like to dismiss the case. Any objection to this order must be filed by 1/29/2016. Failure to object may constitute a waiver of objections on appeal. See Provident Bank v. Manor Steel Corp., 882 F.2d 258, 260 (7th Cir. 1989).
