Belleau v. University of Michigan
ORDER DISMISSING CASE for Failure to Prosecute. Signed by District Judge David M. Lawson. (DTof)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
DAVID D. BELLEAU,
Case Number 10-14978
Honorable David M. Lawson
UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN,
ORDER DISMISSING CASE FOR FAILURE TO PROSECUTE
The plaintiff filed the complaint in this case on December 15, 2010 and an amended
complaint on January 11, 2011. No further action has occurred in this case since that date.
Therefore, on June 1, 2011, the Court ordered the plaintiff to show cause in writing on or before
June 15, 2011, why this case should not be dismissed for failure to prosecute. The plaintiff has not
responded to the order. Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b) provides for involuntary dismissal “[i]f the plaintiff
fails to prosecute” upon motion by the defendant. However, the Court can also dismiss the case sua
sponte in the exercise of its inherent power to manage the docket. Link v. Wabash R.R. Co., 370
U.S. 626, 630-32 (1962).
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the above-captioned case shall be DISMISSED
WITHOUT PREJUDICE for failure to prosecute.
