IN THE UNTIED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
CITY OF MOBILE POLICE
CIVIL ACTION NO. 12-0353-KD-N
Pursuant to the court’s order (doc. 7), plaintiff filed an Amended Complaint (doc. 9) on
July 17, 2012. However, her amended complaint did not include a completed summons to the
defendant as provided in Rule 4 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Further, though her
amend complaint contains a Title VII claim, she has not attached a copy of the “Right-To-Sue”
letter from the EEOC; filing a claim with the EEOC and filing suit within the appropriate time
following receipt of a right-to-sue letter from that agency are requirements of suit under Title
VII. See e.g. Wilkerson v. Grinnell Corp., 270 F.3d 1314, 1317 (11th Cir. 2001).
Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED that plaintiff shall, no later than August 20, 2012,
submit to the clerk of this court a completed summons to be issued by the clerk and served on the
defendant along with a copy of the amended complaint, and shall file a copy of the EEOC’s
right-to-sue letter concerning the claims raised herein.
Failure to do so may result in a
recommendation that this action be dismissed for failure to comply with the orders of this court.
The Clerk is DIRECTED to send a copy of this order to the plaintiff by both regular and
DONE this the 31st day of July, 2012.
