IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
Case No. 3:14-cv-00050 KGB
CITY OF OSCEOLA, et al.
Plaintiff Landon Chandler, an inmate of the Mississippi County Detention Center,
commenced this pro se action by filing a complaint pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (Dkt. No. 2).
On June 9 and 12, 2014, the Clerk of Court noted that filings mailed to Mr. Chandler at his
address on record had been returned and were marked “Return to Sender - Released” (Dkt. Nos.
Pro se litigants are required to follow the same rules of procedure, including the local
court rules that govern other litigants. See Green v. Dorrell, 969 F.2d 915, 917 (10th Cir. 1992).
Of particular note to pro se plaintiffs is Local Rule 5.5(c)(2), which states:
Parties appearing pro se. 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.
Loc. R. 5.5(c)(2).
Mr. Chandler is therefore ordered to notify the Clerk of Court of his new address within
14 days of the date of this Order. Mr. Chandler’s failure to comply with this Order may result in
the dismissal of his complaint without prejudice.
SO ORDERED this the 23rd day of June, 2014.
