Brown v. Fisher et al
ORDER DISMISSING CASE: Ordered that Plaintiff's complaint is dismissed without prejudice. Signed by Chief District Judge Louis Guirola, Jr on 2/2/17. (JCH)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI
EDDIE JOSEPH BROWN
CAUSE NO. 1:15CV373- LG-RHW
MARSHALL FISHER, ET AL.
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
THIS MATTER is before the Court sua sponte for consideration of dismissal.
When Plaintiff filed this case in November 2015, he at the same time requested
leave to proceed in forma pauperis (“IFP”). The Magistrate Judge initially granted
the IFP application, but later recommended revocation because it had come to the
Magistrate Judge’s attention that Plaintiff had accumulated at least three strikes
against him. (Rep. & Rec. 2, ECF No. 33). Accordingly, Plaintiff was not entitled
to proceed in federal court without paying costs and fees.
The Court adopted the recommendation in November 2016, and advised
Plaintiff that he must pay the entire filing fee to maintain his lawsuit. (See Order ,
ECF No. 36). Plaintiff was warned that failure to pay the filing fee within the
thirty-day time period allowed would result in dismissal of his lawsuit. As of this
date, Plaintiff has not paid the filing fee.
Fed. R. CIV . P. 41(b) provides that “[i]f the plaintiff fails to prosecute or to
comply with these rules or a court order, a defendant may move to dismiss the
action or any claim against it.” The Court may also sua sponte dismiss the action
for failure to prosecute or for failure to comply with a court order. Larson v. Scott,
157 F.3d 1030, 1031 (5th Cir. 1998). As Plaintiff has failed to comply with the
Court’s Order, his complaint will be dismissed.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that Plaintiff’s
complaint is DISMISSED without prejudice pursuant to FED. R. CIV. P. 41(b).
SO ORDERED AND ADJUDGED this the 2nd day of February, 2017.
