v.
AMERICAN HOME PRODUCTS D/B/A WYETH CO., WYETH-AYERST LABORATORIES AND LEDERLE LABORATORIES, INC., AVENTIS PASTEUR, INC., INDIVIDUALLY AND AS SUCCESSOR-IN-INTEREST TO CONNAUGHT LABORATORIES, INC.,; GLAXOSMITHKLINE, INDIVIDUALLY AND AS SUCCESSOR-IN-INTEREST TO SMITHKLINE BEECHAM CORP.; MERCK & CO, INC.; SIGMA-ALDRICH, INC.; SPECTRUM LABORATORY PRODUCTS, INC.; ELI LILLY AND COMPANY; JOHN DOE CORPORATE DEFENDANTS 1-10; LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM F/K/A HOSPITAL BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF LEE COUNTY D/B/A LEE PHYSICIANS GROUP; AND JOHN DOE, M.D., DEFENDANTS.



ORDER

This cause comes before the Court upon the Report and Recommendation filed by United States Magistrate Judge Douglas N. Frazier on December 19, 2011 (Doc. 80). In the Report and Recommendation, Judge Frazier recommends that this action be dismissed for failure to prosecute. Neither party has objected to the Report and Recommendation and the time to do so has expired.

The Court is in agreement with the Magistrate that this case should be dismissed for want of prosecution. See M.D.Fla. Local Rule 3.10(a). Plaintiffs have failed to comply with the Court's Orders, including failing to either retain new counsel or inform the Court that they were proceeding pro se pursuant to the Order entered on October 24, 2011 (Doc. 78), and subsequently failing to respond to the Order to Show Cause entered on November 28, 2011 (Doc. 79). Thus, after careful consideration of the Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge, in conjunction with an independent examination of the court file, the Court is of the opinion that the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation should be adopted, confirmed, and approved in all respects.

Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED and ADJUDGED:

1. The Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge (Doc. 80) is adopted, confirmed, and approved in all respects and is made a part of this order for all purposes, including appellate review.

2. This action is DISMISSED, without prejudice.

3. The Clerk is directed to terminate all deadlines, enter judgment accordingly, and close this case.
