DALE COOK, et al.
Plaintiff Johnny Razor was granted in forma pauperis status on June 26,2012, in this action
filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (Dkt. No.3). He filed an Amended Complaint on July 3, 2012
(Dkt. No. 4), but copies of documents sent to him after that time were returned to the Court as
undeliverable (Dkt. Nos. 11, 12, 13, 14). By Order dated August 2, 2012, this Court directed Mr.
Razor to notify the Court of his current address and his intent to continue the prosecution of this
action within thirty days of the date of the Order (Dkt. No. 15). The Court advised Mr. Razor that
failure to comply could result in the dismissal of his Complaint without prejudice for failure to
prosecute. The copy of the Order sent to Mr. Razor at his last-known address was returned to the
Court as undeliverable on August 13, 2012 (Dkt. No. 17). As of this date, Mr. Razor has not
responded to the Court's Order or otherwise corresponded with the Court.
Local Rule 5.5(c)(2) provides:
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 ....
In light of Mr. Razor's failure to respond to this Court's August 2, 2012 Order, this action
is dismissed without prejudice.
