IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS WESTERN DIVISION JAMES JONES v. PLAINTIFF 4:15CV00374-JM-JJV SALINE COUNTY JAIL; et al. DEFENDANTS ORDER Plaintiff commenced this pro se action by filing a Complaint pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (Doc. No. 2). Recent mailings to Plaintiff from the Court have been returned as undeliverable. (Doc. Nos. 11, 17, 20, 22.) Pro se litigants are required to follow the same rules of procedure, including the local court rules, that govern other litigants. Of particular note 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) 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). Plaintiff was notified of this requirement in a previous Order. (Doc. No. 3 at 3.) Plaintiff is, therefore, ordered to notify the Clerk of his new address within thirty (30) days of the date of this Order. Plaintiff’s failure to comply with this Order may result in the dismissal of his Complaint without prejudice. IT IS SO ORDERED this 30th day of November, 2015. JOE J. VOLPE UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
