IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
KARLISS LYTTLE, #05838-025,
SIX UNKNOWN NAMES AGENTS,
CIVIL NO. 12-1006-GPM
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
MURPHY, District Judge:
On December 6, 2012, Plaintiff was ordered to provide the Court with his current address
no later than January 11, 2013, or to indicate to the Court, in writing, that he is not the filer of this
complaint and does not wish to pursue litigation in this matter (Doc. 4). Plaintiff was clearly
warned that failure to comply with the Court’s December 6th Order (Doc. 4) would result in
dismissal of this case. The Order (Doc. 4) was mailed to Plaintiff at the address on file with the
Clerk’s Office in this action: Big Spring Federal Correctional Institution, 1900 Simler Avenue, Big
Spring, TX, 79720.
On January 14, 2013, the Order (Doc. 4) was returned to this Court as refused by the inmate
(See Doc. 5). The date to notify this Court of Plaintiff’s address, or to indicate, in writing, that he
does not wish to proceed with this matter has passed, and Plaintiff has failed to respond. As a
result, this action is DISMISSED without prejudice, for want of prosecution. FED. R. CIV. P.
41(b). See generally Ladien v. Astrachan, 128 F.3d 1051 (7th Cir. 1997); Johnson v. Kamminga,

34 F.3d 466 (7th Cir. 1994). This dismissal shall NOT count as one of Plaintiff’s three allotted
“strikes” under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g). Plaintiff’s obligation to pay the filing fee for this action was
incurred at the time the action was filed, thus the filing fee of $350 remains due and payable. See
28 U.S.C. § 1915(b)(1); Lucien v. Jockisch, 133 F.3d 464, 467 (7th Cir. 1998). The Clerk of the
Court is DIRECTED to CLOSE this case on the Court’s docket.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATED: February 15, 2013
