UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
SAMUEL N. BROWN,
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
No. C-12-4862 EMC (pr)
This action was opened on September 17, 2012, when the Court received from Samuel N.
Brown a letter with some exhibits concerning alleged retaliation against him in prison. On that date,
the Court notified Plaintiff in writing that his action was deficient in that he had not attached a
complaint and had not filed an in forma pauperis application. The Court further notified Plaintiff
that this action would be dismissed if he did not submit a complaint and in forma pauperis
application within thirty days. Plaintiff did not file a complaint or in forma pauperis application.
Instead, he sent a letter dated October 16, 2012, requesting that the action be dismissed because he
did not intend to file a civil action at this time. (Docket # 4.) Accordingly, this action is
DISMISSED without prejudice for failure to submit a pleading showing the Court has subject
matter jurisdiction. The Clerk shall close the file.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: December 21, 2012
EDWARD M. CHEN
United States District Judge
