On 31 October 2011, Defendants moved for summary judgment. On 22
November 2011, Magistrate Judge Jerome T. Kearney ordered Croston to
respond, warning of Local Rule 5.5(c)(2) and the consequences of
noncompliance. Document No. 34.
Local Rule 5.5(c)(2) of the Rules of the United States District Courts for
the Eastern and Western Districts of Arkansas provides in part:
It is the duty of any party not represented by counsel to promptly notify
the Clerk and the other parties to the proceedings of any change in his
or her address, to monitor the progress of the case and to prosecute or
defend the action diligently .... If any communication from the Court
to a pro se plaintiff is not responded to within thirty (30) days, the case
may be dismissed without prejudice.
Croston still hasn't responded. In light of Croston's failure to prosecute,
the Court dismisses his complaint without prejudice. Motion for summary
judgment, Document No. 31, denied without prejudice as moot.
D.P. Marshall Jr.
