Lawrence et al v. Wyeth LLC et al
ORDER granting Defendants' 86 Motion to Dismiss. The Complaint is DISMISSED without prejudice. Signed by Judge James M. Moody on 8/13/2013. (dmn)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
STELLA LAWRENCE, et al.
WYETH, LLC, et al.
Pending is the Defendants’ motion to dismiss. (Docket # 86). The motion is
GRANTED. On May 31, 2013, the Court entered an Order allowing Plaintiffs’ counsel
to withdraw. Plaintiffs were directed to notify the Court in writing on or before July 1,
2013, indicating whether they intended to proceed with this case pro se or whether they
intended to obtain substitute counsel. Plaintiffs were also directed to be familiar and
comply with all Federal Rules of Civil Procedure as well as the Local Rules of this Court.
Plaintiffs failed to respond to the Court’s Order.
Local Rule 5.5(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 communication 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 Plaintiffs’ failure to respond to this Court's May 31, 2013 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 13th day of August, 2013.
James M. Moody
United States District Judge
