WILLIAMS v. BONDS et al
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER administratively terminating this matter for petitioner's failure to comply with L. Civ. R. 10.0. Signed by Judge Robert B. Kugler on 5/2/2017. (dmr)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY
Civ. No. 16-5927 (RBK)
WILLIE BONDS, et al.,
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Petitioner, Maurice Williams, is a former state prisoner proceeding pro se with a petition
for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Respondents have filed a motion to
dismiss the habeas petition due to untimeliness. Prior to this Court ruling on that motion, a
procedural issue must be examined.
Mr. Williams lists his address of record in this case at the South Woods State Prison in
Bridgeton, New Jersey. However, a review of the State of New Jersey Department of Corrections
website indicates that Mr. Williams was released from incarceration at the South Woods State
Prison on April 13, 2017. See https://www20.state.nj.us/DOC_Inmate/details?x=1001410&n=0
(last visited on May 1, 2017).
As of today’s date, Mr. Williams has not updated the Court with his new address in this
case in violation of Local Civil Rule 10.1. See L. Civ. R. 10.1(a) (“Counsel and/or unrepresented
parties must advise the Court of any change in their or their client’s address within seven days of
being appraised of such change by filing a notice of said change with the Clerk.”). Therefore,
this Court will administratively terminate this case. Mr. Williams shall be given the right to
reopen this matter if he provides this Court with an updated corrected address.
Accordingly, IT IS this 2nd day of May, 2017,
ORDERED that the Clerk shall ADMINISTRATIVELY TERMINATE this matter for
petitioner’s failure to comply with L. Civ. R. 10.1, with the right to re-open upon petitioner
updating his contact information and satisfying the appropriate Rules.
