IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
CORBIN B. JONES,
Case No. 17-cv-0422-JPG
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
GILBERT, District Judge:
On April 25, 2017, Plaintiff filed this Complaint.
The case underwent
threshold screening on September 27, 2017, and the Court dismissed some claims as duplicative
of another suit, 17-349, and others for failure to associate a named defendant with the
allegations. (Doc. 12). Plaintiff was given until October 26, 2017 to file an amended complaint,
identifying any defendants associated with his unique deliberate indifference claims. (Doc. 12).
The deadline has now passed. Plaintiff has not filed an amended complaint or requested an
extension of time to do so. The Court therefore finds that Plaintiff is not in compliance with its
September 27th Order directing him to file an amended complaint. (Doc. 12).
As a result, this case is DISMISSED with prejudice for failure to state a claim upon
which relief may be granted and for failure to comply with an order of this Court. 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 count as one of Plaintiff’s three
allotted “strikes” within the meaning of 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g).
If Plaintiff wishes to appeal this Order, he may file a notice of appeal with this Court
within thirty days of the entry of judgment. FED. R. APP. 4(A)(4). If Plaintiff does choose to
appeal, he will be liable for the $505.00 appellate filing fee irrespective of the outcome of the
appeal. See FED. R. APP. 3(e); 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2); Ammons v. Gerlinger, 547 F.3d 724, 72526 (7th Cir. 2008); Sloan v. Lesza, 181 F.3d 857, 858-59 (7th Cir. 1999); Lucien v. Jockish,
133 F.3d 464, 467 (7th Cir. 1998). If the appeal is found to be non-meritorious, Plaintiff may
also incur another “strike.” A timely motion filed pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure
59(e) may toll the 30-day appeal deadline.1 FED. R. APP. 4(a)(4).
The Clerk’s Office is DIRECTED to close this case and enter judgment accordingly.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATED: November 7, 2017
