IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
THAM VAN PHAM,
NO. 2:13CV00158 JLH/JTR
ANTHONY HAYNES, Warden,
FCI-Forrest City, et al.
OPINION AND ORDER
Tham Van Pham has filed his pro se action alleging that Defendants violated his
constitutional rights. On December 24, 2013, the Court gave Pham thirty days to either pay the filing
fee or file an application to proceed in forma pauperis, and file an amended complaint containing
information needed to complete 28 U.S.C. § 1915A screening. Document #3. Importantly, Pham
was advised that, if he failed to timely do so, this case would be dismissed pursuant to Local
Rule 5.5(c)(2), which provides that:
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. A
party appearing for himself/herself shall sign his/her pleadings and state his/her
address, zip code, and telephone number. 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. Any party proceeding pro se shall be expected to be familiar with
and follow the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
As of today’s date, Pham has not complied with the December 24, 2013 Order, and the time
for doing so has expired.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED THAT:
This case is dismissed without prejudice pursuant to Local Rule 5.5(c)(2).
The Court certifies, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3), that an in forma pauperis
appeal would not be taken in good faith.
DATED this 29th day of January, 2014.
