IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
ADC # 754203
WOODY JONES, Doctor,
Russellville Medical Clinic, et al.
Plaintiff Shaneice Perkins commenced this pro se action by filing a Complaint
pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (Doc. 2). On September 5, 2014 filings from the Court
mailed to Plaintiff were returned as undeliverable.1 Doc. 4.
Pro se litigants are required to follow the same rules of procedure, including the
local court rules, that govern other litigants. Of particular note to pro se plaintiffs is
Local Rule 5.5(c)(2), which states:
Parties appearing pro se. 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. A
party appearing for himself/herself shall sign his/her pleadings and state
his/her address, zip code, and telephone number. If any communication
from the Court to a pro se plaintiff is not responded to within thirty (30)
A message on the return envelope indicated that Plaintiff had been paroled on June 27,
2014. Regardless, it is Plaintiff’s responsibility to keep the Clerk of Court apprised of her most
days, the case may be dismissed without prejudice. Any party proceeding
pro se shall be expected to be familiar with and follow the Federal Rules
of Civil Procedure.
Loc. R. 5.5(c)(2) (emphasis added). Accordingly, Plaintiff is ordered to notify the
Clerk of Court of her current address within thirty (30) days of the date of this
Order’s entrance. Her failure to do so will result in the dismissal of her Complaint
without prejudice pursuant to Local Rule 5.5(c)(2).
SO ORDERED THIS 22nd day of September, 2014.
