CODY RAY LEVEKE,
Case No. 3:21-CV-00856-NJR
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
ROSENSTENGEL, Chief Judge:
This matter is before the Court sua sponte for case management purposes. On July 26, 2021,
Plaintiff Cody Ray Leveke filed a Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus (Doc. 1). On the same day,
the Court ordered Plaintiff to submit a filing fee or file a motion to procced in forma pauperis within
30 days (Doc. 2). Plaintiff was cautioned that his failure to do so may result in dismissal of his
case for failure to prosecute pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(b) (Id.). At this time,
Plaintiff has not paid the required filing fee or filed a motion to proceed without payment.
The Court finds that Plaintiff has failed to comply with its order and to prosecute this
matter. Consequently, this matter is DISMISSED without prejudice pursuant to Rule 41(b) of
the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. See GCIU Employer Ret. Fund v. Chicago Tribune Co., 8 F.3d
1195, 1199 (7th Cir. 1993) (“[D]istrict courts possess inherent authority to dismiss a case sua sponte
for a plaintiff's failure to prosecute.”).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATED: January 7, 2022
