Plaintiff Green is further advised that under the procedures and policies of this court, MOTIONS TO DISMISS are normally decided on briefs. The court considers the pleadings and briefs filed by the parties in deciding whether DISMISSAL is appropriate under the law. FAILURE OF THE PLAINTIFF HEREIN TO RESPOND TO THE MOTION TO DISMISS MAY RESULT IN THE GRANTING OF SAID MOTION.
