IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
Case No. 3:20-cv-00370-LPR
STEVE FRANKS, Sheriff;
BRENT COX, Director of Operations;
WESLEY MANNING, Detention Officer
Plaintiff Ronnie Cote brought this civil rights suit in forma pauperis and pro se. But he
failed to carry out his obligations under Rule 26(f) to confer regarding a 26(f) report. (Doc. 12 &
14). On May 19, 2021, this Court ordered Mr. Cote to file, by June 1st, a response explaining why
he had not conferred with Defendants as required by FED. R. CIV. P. 26(f) and stating any
objections to Defendants’ Rule 26(f) report. (Doc. 15). The Court explained to Mr. Cote his
responsibilities to follow the rules and cautioned that failure to respond to the Court could result
in dismissal under Local Rule 5.5(c)(2). Mr. Cote did not comply with that Order, and the time to
do so has passed.
As a result of Mr. Cote’s failure to prosecute or comply with the rules, the Court concludes
that this case should be DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.
Dated, this 4th day of June, 2021.
