CAROLYN K. DELANEY, Magistrate Judge.
Plaintiff is proceeding in this action pro se and in forma pauperis. By order filed January 6, 2017, plaintiff's complaint was dismissed and thirty days leave to file an amended complaint was granted. The thirty day period has now expired, and plaintiff has not filed an amended complaint.
On February 7, 2017, plaintiff filed a motion for reconsideration by the District Judge of the January 6, 2017 order.
Because it appears that plaintiff may have been under a misapprehension regarding the need to file an amended complaint in compliance with the court's January 6, 2017 order, the court will grant an extension of time to file an amended complaint. Plaintiff is cautioned that the filing of a motion for reconsideration does not automatically stay the effect of a non-dispositive order issued by the Magistrate Judge.
In accordance with the above, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that no later than March 10, 2017 plaintiff shall file an amended complaint that complies with the January 6, 2017 order. Failure to timely file an amended complaint will result in a recommendation that the action be dismissed.
