IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
THOMAS J. VILSACK, Secretary,
United States Department of Agriculture;
and FOREST SERVICE
Thompson filed a pro se complaint alleging age, race, and sex
discrimination by the Forest Service. In October 2012, the Court denied
without prejudice her motion to proceed in forma pauperis. Document No. 5.
Nothing has happened since. If she wants to pursue this case, Thompson
must pay the $350 filing fee by 27 February 2013. The Court will dismiss this
case without prejudice if she does not.
There also appears to be a service issue. Thompson had 120 days to
serve her complaint properly. FED. R. CIV. P. 4(m). That period ended, by the
Court's count, on 12 February 2013. Bland must therefore file proof of valid
service before 12 February 2013, or a motion to extend her time for service
showing good cause, by February 27th. If she does not, the Court must
dismiss her complaint without prejudice. FED. R. CIV. P. 4(m).
