UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN SOUTHERN DIVISION RALPH HARRIS and THERESA BURNETT-HARRIS, Plaintiffs, Case No. 16-cv-13985 Hon. Matthew F. Leitman v. BUREAU OF COMMUNITY AND HEALTH SYSTEMS et al., Defendants. _________________________________/ ORDER DISMISSING PLAINTIFFS’ COMPLAINT (ECF #1) WITHOUT PREJUDICE On November 10, 2016, Plaintiffs Ralph Harris (“Mr. Harris”) and Theresa Burnett-Harris (collectively, “Plaintiffs”) filed this action against the Michigan Bureau of Community and Health Systems, Larry Horvath, and Emilee C. Smith (collectively, “Defendants”). (See Compl., ECF #1.) Among other things, Plaintiffs appear to allege that Mr. Harris was mistreated while a resident of the Beaconshire Nursing Centre and that Defendants committed fraud and other misconduct related to an investigation of Plaintiffs’ mistreatment allegations. (See id.) 1    On November 30, 2016, the Court entered a written Order in which it required Plaintiffs to file a More Definite Statement with respect to their allegations against the Defendants by no later than January 16, 2017 (the “Order”). (See ECF #6.) The Court then expressly warned Plaintiffs that the “[f]ailure to comply as directed may result in the dismissal of this action.” (Id. at 4, Pg. ID 28; emphasis in original). Plaintiffs have failed to comply with the Order and have not filed a More Definite Statement as the Court required. Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiffs’ Complaint (ECF #1) is DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE for failure to comply with the Order.             s/Matthew F. Leitman MATTHEW F.
