CASE NO. 3:15-CV-178 JLH/BD
DETENTION CENTER, et al.
On June 22, 2015, Plaintiff Alvin Everett Cole, then an inmate at the Mississippi County
Detention Center, filed this lawsuit pro se under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, and moved for leave to
proceed in forma pauperis (“IFP”). (Docket entries #1, #2) His IFP application, however, did
not include necessary prisoner account information. On July 1, 2015, the Court ordered Cole to
file a complete IFP application or to pay the $400 filing fee within thirty days. (#3)
On July 2, 2015, an order addressed to Cole was returned to the court as undeliverable.
(#4) Cole was ordered to provide notice of his new address. (#5) That order was also returned
to the court as undeliverable, with a notation that Cole had been released from the Detention
To date, Cole has not filed a complete IFP application or paid the filing fee. The time
allowed for addressing the filing fee has passed. Furthermore, Cole has failed to notify the Court
of his current address. He was warned that failure to comply with Court orders would result in
the dismissal of his claims. (#3, #5)
Cole has failed to prosecute his case. Accordingly, his claims are dismissed, without
prejudice, under Local Rule 5.5(c)(2). The Clerk is directed to close this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 18th day of August, 2015.
