THOMAS J. FRAWLEY, et al.,

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before the Court on plaintiff’s failure to comply with the Court’s order
dated January 15, 2015. The Court directed plaintiff to file an amended complaint along with
either the $400 filing fee or a motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis. As a result, the
Court dismisses this action under Rule 41(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

however, is undercut by the fact that he affixed postage to both of his request for stamps.

the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this action is dismissed under Rule 41(b) of the
Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
An Order of Dismissal will be filed separately.
Dated this 5th day of March, 2015.
