GRANVILLE v. GOVERNMENT LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY(S) ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE OF LAW ENFORCEMENT
ORDER DISMISSING without prejudice 1 Complaint. Ordered by US DISTRICT JUDGE MARC THOMAS TREADWELL on 11/7/2016. (tlh)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
RAYMOND UGENE GRANVILLE, :
GOVERNMENT LAW ENFORCE- :
MENT AGENCY(S) ADMIN:
STRATIVE OFFICE OF LAW
Plaintiff Raymond Ugene Granville, an inmate at Hays State Prison, filed the instant
pro se civil rights complaint under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. In an Order dated September 7,
2016, United States Magistrate Judge Stephen Hyles, among other things, ordered Plaintiff
to supplement his complaint. (ECF No. 5). Plaintiff was warned that failure to comply
with the Court’s Order would result in dismissal of his complaint. Plaintiff was given 21
days from the date of the September 7th Order to comply. When Plaintiff failed to meet
the deadline, Judge Hyles, on October 19, 2016, ordered Plaintiff to respond and show
cause why his lawsuit should not be dismissed for failure to comply with the Court’s
Orders. (ECF No. 6). Plaintiff’s response was due within 14 days of the date of the
October 19th Order and Plaintiff was again advised that failure to respond would result in
dismissal of his lawsuit.
As of today’s date, Plaintiff has failed to comply with, or otherwise respond to,
either of the Court’s Orders. For these reasons, and because Georgia’s two-year statute of
limitations will not prevent the filing of Plaintiff’s complaint in the near future, the instant
action is hereby DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b);
Brown v. Tallahassee Police Dep't, 205 F. App'x 802, 802 (11th Cir. 2006) (“The court
may dismiss an action sua sponte under Rule 41(b) for failure to prosecute or failure to
obey a court order.”) (citing Lopez v. Aransas Cnty Indep. Sch. Dist., 570 F.2d 541, 544
(5th Cir. 1978)).
SO ORDERED, this 7th day of November, 2016.
