This case is DISMISSED without prejudice for Plaintiff Clemitay
Antwan Helms’s failure to prosecute this action properly.1
Plaintiff’s last activity in this case was in early October 2016, when he filed an amended
complaint in compliance with the court’s order. (See Doc. # 4 (Order); Doc. # 5 (Am. Compl.).)
A final judgment will be entered separately.
DONE this 4th day of January, 2017.
/s/ W. Keith Watkins
CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
At the time he commenced this action, Mr. Helms was a state inmate confined at the Bullock
Correctional Facility; however, beginning in November 2016, the court’s orders, which were
mailed to Mr. Helms at the Bullock Correctional Facility’s address, were returned as undeliverable.
In December 2016, the court learned, through its own investigation, that Mr. Helms has been
released from state custody and that there is no forwarding address on file in the records of the
Alabama Department of Corrections. Because Mr. Helms has failed to inform the court of his new
address and his whereabouts are not discoverable, dismissal of this action is appropriate for
Plaintiff’s failure to prosecute.
