Perry v. North Little Rock Police Department
ORDER dismissing this action without prejudice and certifying that an in forma pauperis appeal taken from this order and judgment would be frivolous and not in good faith.Signed by Judge Susan Webber Wright on 7/14/2016. (mef)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
LITTLE ROCK DIVISION
TIMOTHY C. PERRY
NO. 4:16CV00273 SWW
NORTH LITTLE ROCK
On May 18, 2016, Plaintiff commenced this case by filing a pro se complaint under 42
U.S.C. § 1983, along with an incomplete application to proceed in forma pauperis. On June 2, 2016,
the Court entered an order directing Plaintiff to submit a completed application within thirty days,
and the Court specifically warned Plaintiff that the failure to do so would result in the dismissal of
his complaint. More than 30 days have passed, and Plaintiff has not filed an in forma pauperis
application as directed, nor has he responded to the Court’s order. Accordingly, this action will be
dismissed without prejudice for failure to pay the filing fee, failure to comply with Local Rule
5.5(c)(2), and failure respond to the Court’s order. See Miller v. Benson, 51 F.3d 166, 168 (8th Cir.
1995)(District courts have inherent power to dismiss sua sponte a case for failure to prosecute, and
exercise of that power is reviewed for abuse of discretion).
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that this action is DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.
The Court certifies that an in forma pauperis appeal taken from this order and the accompanying
judgment dismissing this action would be frivolous and not in good faith.
IT IS SO ORDERED THIS 14th DAY OF JULY, 2016.
