On March 18, 2013, Plaintiff filed a complaint which was dismissed without prejudice and
20 with leave to amend on April 8, 2013. (Doc. 3.) The Court's April 8, 2013, order was served on

23 action is DISMISSED without prejudice and the case shall be administratively closed.
On April 8, 2013, the Court issued an order dismissing Plaintiff's complaint, which was
26 served via First Class U.S. Mail to the address of record Plaintiff provided. On April 29, 2013, the

persona by the Clerk is returned by the U.S. Postal Service, and if such plaintiff
fails to notify the Court and opposing parties within sixty-three (63) days thereafter
of a current address, the Court may dismiss the action without prejudice for failure
Plaintiff has not provided the Court with a current address pursuant to Local Rule 183(b),
6 and more than sixty-three (63) days have passed since mail from the Court was first returned by
7 the U.S. Postal Service as undeliverable.
The Court has no way to contact Plaintiff; the address set forth in the complaint is invalid,
9 and Plaintiff has not provided the Court with an updated address. As such, pursuant to Local Rule
10 183(b), "the Court may dismiss the action without prejudice for failure to prosecute."
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
