IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
CASE NO. 4:15-CV-736-BD
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
Mr. Phillips, formerly an inmate at the Pulaski County Regional Detention Facility
(“Detention Facility”), filed this lawsuit without the help of a lawyer under 42 U.S.C.
§ 1983. He is proceeding in forma pauperis. (Docket entries #1, #5)
Mr. Phillips is no longer incarcerated at the Detention Facility as evidenced by
mail returned to the Court on July 29, 2016, marked “undeliverable.” (#24) Because Mr.
Phillips had not informed the Court of his new address as required by the Court’s local
rules, the Court gave Mr. Phillips thirty days to notify the Court of his new address. (#25)
The Court specifically cautioned Mr. Phillips that his lawsuit could be dismissed if he
failed to comply with this Court’s order. Local Rule 5.5.
To date, Mr. Phillips has not responded to the Court’s August 8, 2016 order, and
the time for doing so has passed.
Mr. Phillips’s claims are DISMISSED, without prejudice, based on his failure to
comply with this Court’s order and the failure to prosecute this lawsuit. Defendant
Williams’s motion for summary judgment (#20) is DENIED, as moot. The Clerk of the
Court is directed to close this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED, this 14th day of September, 2016.
