Franklin v. Walker et al
ORDER dismissing this case, without prejudice, for failure to prosecute. Signed by Judge D. P. Marshall Jr. on 5/16/2012. (jct)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
COURTIS WALKER, Prosecuting
Attorney, Mississippi County; and
DOES, Blytheville Police
Cleophus Franklin, an inmate housed at the Mississippi County
Detention Center, filed this § 1983 lawsuit lastfall. His original complaint and
first amended complaint gave the Court too few facts to determine whether
he could state a claim for relief. So the Court ordered Franklin to submit a
second amended complaint by 13 February 2012. In that complaint, Franklin
was ordered to do several things:
identify the individuals who were
responsible for detaining him without due process; set out facts supporting
his claim of an unconstitutional county policy; and clarify whether he is suing
the Defendants in their individual capacities, if he seeks money damages.
Franklin has not filed the required second amended complaint, despite
being warned that failure to comply could result in dismissal of his case.
Franklin has written letters to the Court since the order to amend was filed.
But he has not provided facts necessary for this case to go forward. This case
is therefore dismissed, without prejudice, for failure to prosecute.
