TANNER v. MONROE COUNTY BOARD OF EDUCATION et al
ORDER DISMISSING without prejudice 1 Complaint. Ordered by US DISTRICT JUDGE MARC THOMAS TREADWELL on 9/17/2015. (tlh)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
JULIA MAE TANNER,
MONROE COUNTY BOARD OF
CIVIL ACTION NO. 5:15-CV-280 (MTT)
Plaintiff Julia Mae Tanner, proceeding pro se, filed this action against the Monroe
County Board of Education alleging Title VII employment discrimination. (Doc. 1). On
August 4, 2015, this Court ordered the Plaintiff to amend her complaint within 30 days
with instructions that she “should explain the specific instances of discrimination she
alleges occurred. She must also specify if she is pursuing a separate claim based on
her hip injury or a disability and explain the particular facts relating to a claim. … [T]he
Plaintiff is … cautioned that failure to comply with this order will result in dismissal of her
complaint.” (Doc. 4 at 2). The Plaintiff has refused to provide further details about her
claim as instructed. (Doc. 5). Instead, the Plaintiff submitted a two-sentence letter to
the Court with vague references to “severe racial discrimination” and “recent firings [of]
Black employees.” (Doc. 5). Neither was mentioned in her original complaint, and the
Plaintiff has not provided any facts about these claims.1 Because the Plaintiff has not
amended her complaint as instructed, her complaint is DISMISSED without prejudice.
The Plaintiff has not provided a right to sue letter. Instead, she has provided a letter indicating that she
has one. Should she decide to refile, she should attach the right to sue letter. This complaint is not being
dismissed for failure to exhaust.
SO ORDERED, this 17th day of September, 2015.
