IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
THE CITIZENS BANK,
Civil Action No. 7:12-CV-88 (HL)
ACS/NES PROPERTIES, INC., ADONNA
SMITH, and NATHANIEL SMITH,
Defendant Adonna Smith, who is proceeding pro se, has filed a notice of
removal of a case from the Magistrate Court of Lowndes County. Under 28 U.S.C. §
1446(a), a defendant seeking to remove an action must file a copy of all process,
pleadings, and orders served upon the defendant in the action. Defendant Smith has
not done so. Without that information, the Court cannot determine if it has jurisdiction
over the case. Defendant Smith is ordered to supplement her notice of removal no
later than August 3, 2012. Failure to properly supplement the notice in a timely
manner will result in the dismissal of this action. At this point, the Court is making no
determination of whether the case was properly removed.
SO ORDERED, this the 18th day of July, 2012.
s/ Hugh Lawson
HUGH LAWSON, SENIOR JUDGE
