IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
CASE NO. 3:13CV00206 BSM
JOHN CAWLEY, Jail Administrator,
Greene County Detention Center, et al.
This case is dismissed without prejudice for failure to prosecute. On September 17,
2013, Jeremy Locke’s complaint was struck from the record for being in violation of Fed. R.
Civ. P. 20, as well as Eighth Circuit precedent establishing that prisoners cannot combine
factually and legally unrelated claims in one lawsuit. Locke was advised that if he failed to
file a substituted complaint within thirty days, this case would be dismissed for failure to
prosecute. See Local R 5.5(c)(2). Locke has not filed his substituted complaint, and the time
for doing so has expired. Accordingly, this case is dismissed without prejudice for failure to
prosecute. It is certified that an in forma pauperis appeal would not be taken in good faith.
28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3).
IT IS SO ORDERED this 21st day of October 2013.
