RECOMMENDATION OF UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
Boyd N. Boland, United States Magistrate Judge.
The plaintiff filed his Prisoner Complaint (the " Complaint") on November 25, 2014 [Doc. #1]. On December 5, 2014, the Clerk of the Court sent a request for waiver of service to defendant Joe Ortiz at the Colorado Department of Corrections (" DOC") [Doc. #10]. Teresa Reynolds, Legal Assistant for the DOC, did not waive and accept service for Mr. Ortiz because he no longer works for the DOC [Doc. #12], but she provided Mr. Ortiz' last known forwarding address [Doc. #14].
The Marshal was unable to serve Mr. Ortiz at the address provided because he does not reside there [Doc. #17]. Consequently, I ordered the plaintiff to show cause on or before January 16, 2015, why the Complaint should not be dismissed as against Mr. Ortiz for failure to prosecute [Doc. #18]. See D.C.COLO.LCivR 41.1. I cautioned the plaintiff that failure to show cause on or before January 16, 2015, would result in my recommendation that the action be dismissed, without prejudice, as against Mr. Ortiz for failure to prosecute. The plaintiff did not respond to the show cause order.
I respectfully RECOMMEND that the Complaint be dismissed without prejudice as against defendant Joe Ortiz.
