O'Neal v. University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff et al
ORDER DISMISSING CASE without prejudice. Signed by Judge James M. Moody on 8/3/11. (kpr)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS AT PINE BLUFF
and GERALD MCCOY
By Order dated April 8, 2011, this Court granted Plaintiff’s Motion to Proceed In
Forma Pauperis in this action. (Doc. No. 3). However, finding Plaintiff’s Complaint too
vague and conclusory to enable it to determine whether it was frivolous, failed to state a
claim, or stated a legitimate cause of action, the Court directed Plaintiff to file an Amended
Complaint within thirty days of the date of the Order. The Court further advised Plaintiff
that failure to file such in accordance with the Court’s directions would result in the dismissal
without prejudice of her complaint.
On May 12, 2011 and June 20, 2011 the Court granted Plaintiff extensions of time in
which to file her amended complaint. As of this date, however, Plaintiff has not filed an
Rule LR5.5(c)(2) of the Rules of the United States District Courts for the Eastern and
Western Districts of Arkansas provides as follows:
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 . . . . If any communi-
cation from the Court to a pro se plaintiff is not
responded to within thirty (30) days, the case may be
dismissed without prejudice. . . .
In light of Plaintiff’s failure to respond to this Court's June 20, 2011 Order, the Court
will dismiss the Complaint without prejudice. Accordingly,
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that this Complaint is DISMISSED without
An appropriate Judgment shall accompany this Order.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 3rd day of August, 2011.
