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

of Civil Procedure.
