VAZQUEZ, District Judge:
Plaintiff, an inmate confined in the Anna M. Kross Center
(“A.M.K.C.”) correctional facility in East Elmhurst, New York,
filed this civil rights action on December 1, 2014, pursuant to 42
U.S.C. § 1983. (Compl., ECF No. 1.) On November 17, 2016, this
Court permitted the Complaint to proceed in part, and ordered
Plaintiff to show cause why the action should not be transferred
to the United States District Court, Southern District of New York,
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1404(a).
(ECF Nos. 10, 11.)
The Clerk of
Court mailed copies of this Court’s Opinion and Order to Plaintiff
at his last known address. On December 5, 2016, the mail was
returned as undeliverable.

filing a notice of said change with the Clerk.
Failure to file a notice of change may result
in the imposition of sanctions by the Court.
Dismissing a Plaintiff’s Complaint without prejudice is an
appropriate remedy for noncompliance with this rule.
