IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
ROLAND KENNEDY HICKS
Case No. 4:11-cv-433-DPM
SHANA COBBS, Officer, Badge # 8635,
North Little Rock Police Department;
GREG BLANKENSHIP, Officer, Badge #4530,
North Little Rock Police Department; and
AMANDA KISSINGER, Officer, Badge

Local Rule 5.5(c)(2) allows for dismissal without prejudice of a pro se
plaintiff's complaint "if any communication from the Court to [the] plaintiff
is not responded to within thirty (30) days[.]" It also states that a pro se
plaintiff such as Hicks has a duty "to monitor the progress of [his] case, and
to prosecute or defend the action diligently." Ibid.
On 12July 2011, the Court granted Hicks until 5 August 2011 to respond
to the pending motion to dismiss. The new deadline has come and gone, but
Hicks has neither responded to the motion nor made any further contact with
the Court. His complaint is therefore dismissed without prejudice. Local
Rule 5.5(c)(2). The pending motions to dismiss, Document Nos. 9 & 18, are
denied as moot.
