Upton v. Stoneridge Nursing & Rehab
ORDER re 21 Plaintiff's Letter that she is unable to prosecute her case pro se, the Court will dismiss this action without prejudice; judgment will be entered accordingly. Signed by Chief Judge J. Leon Holmes on 4/25/11. (vjt)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
NO. 4:11CV00016 JLH
STONERIDGE NURSING AND REHAB
Marita Upton commenced this action pro se. She filed a motion for appointment of counsel,
which the Court granted. The lawyer who was appointed to represent Upton filed a motion to
withdraw, stating that he had investigated the claim and found Upton’s legal position is without
merit. The Court granted the motion to withdraw and directed that Upton would proceed pro se.
She has now written the Court stating that she is unable to defend herself, which the Court construes
as a statement that she is unable to prosecute her case pro se. The Court will therefore dismiss the
action without prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 25th day of April, 2011.
J. LEON HOLMES
