UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN NORTHERN DIVISION KYLE RICHARDS, Plaintiff, v. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Defendant. _______________________________/ ORDER OF SUMMARY DISMISSAL WITHOUT PREJUDICE On January 11, 2010, Plaintiff Kyle Richards filed a pro se civil rights complaint. Plaintiff, who provided a prison address, did not pay the filing fee for a civil action, or the required papers to proceed in forma pauperis. See 28 U.S.C. 1915(a)(2). On January 19, 2010, the Court issued an order directing Plaintiff to correct the deficiency within thirty days to avoid dismissal of the complaint. As of today's date, Plaintiff has not corrected the deficiency. Meanwhile, on February 5, 2010, the Court's order was returned as undeliverable with a notation that Plaintiff had been released from prison. Although Plaintiff may not have received the Court's order, he is not absolved of the obligation to timely pay the filing fee. See E.D. Mich. LR 11.2 ("The failure to file promptly current contact information may subject that person or party to appropriate sanctions, which may include dismissal, default judgment, and costs."). Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that Plaintiff's complaint [Dkt. # 1] is DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE. s/Thomas L. Ludington THOMAS L.
