Mr. Patterson has not filed an amended complaint, as ordered, despite being warned that failing to comply with the order could result in dismissal of his case. (#3) Accordingly, this case is DISMISSED, without prejudice, under Local Rule 5.5(c)(3), this 24th day of August, 2012. /s/Susan Webber Wright UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
