ORDER as follows: 1. The 24 Recommendation is ADOPTED. 2. The claims of Plaintiff Peter James Smith against Defendants Montgomery Police Department, Todd Strange, Christopher Murphy, Ernest N. Finley, Jr., and the City of Montgomery, Alabama, are D ISMISSED with prejudice pursuant to FRCP 41(b). The court specifically finds that Plaintiff Peter J. Smith has established a clear record of failing to comply with court orders. Further, because lesser sanctions than dismissal and numerous accommod ations have failed to gain Plaintiffs compliance with court orders and deadlines, the court finds that lesser sanctions than dismissal are insufficient. A separate final judgment will be entered. Signed by Chief Judge William Keith Watkins on 4/3/2017. (dmn, )
