ORDER DISMISSING CASE. Motions terminated: 11 MOTION for Extension of Time to File Complaint and Application for Leave to Proceed In Forma Pauperis filed by Thomas Alan Strawn. Signed by Judge Vince Chhabria on 4/21/2014. (Attachments: # 1 Certificate/Proof of Service)(knm, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 4/21/2014)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
THOMAS ALAN STRAWN,
Case No. 13-cv-04765-VC
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
United States District Court
Northern District of California
On March 24, 2014, this Court ordered Plaintiff to show cause why this case should not be
dismissed due to failure to exhaust administrative remedies. (Docket No. 12). On April 7, 2014,
Plaintiff filed a letter stating that he is currently pursuing his administrative remedies. (Docket
No. 13). The Prison Litigation Reform Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1997e(a), "requires that a prisoner
exhaust administrative remedies before submitting any papers to the federal courts." Vaden v.
Summerhill, 449 F.3d 1047, 1048 (9th Cir. 2006). Because Plaintiff has not met that requirement,
this action must be, and hereby is, DISMISSED without prejudice to Plaintiff re-filing once he has
exhausted his administrative remedies. See id.
The Clerk of the Court is directed to terminate all pending motions and close this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: April 21, 2014
United States District Judge
