Smith et al v. Corrections Corporation of America et al
ORDER FOR PLAINTIFF ROBERT ORGAN TO SHOW CAUSE by Magistrate Judge Gregory J. Fouratt. Show Cause Response due by 9/27/2017. (kdj)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEW MEXICO
CARTRELL R. SMITH SR.,
JASON LUTZ, and
Civ. No. 16-1201 MCA/GJF
CORRECTIONS CORP. OF AMERICA
TORRANCE COUNTY, and
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE
This matter is before the Court sua sponte. The record reflects that certain mailings to
Plaintiff Robert Organ were returned as undelivered [see ECF Nos. 22, 24]. It appears that
Plaintiff has been transferred or released from custody without advising the Court of his new
address, as required by D.N.M.LR-Civ. 83.6, thus severing contact with the Court. Because
Plaintiff has failed to comply with the Court’s local rules, he will be required to show cause why
this action should not be dismissed. See Bradenburg v. Beaman, 632 F.2d 120, 122 (10th Cir.
1980) (“It is incumbent on litigants, even those proceeding pro se, to follow the federal rules of
procedure. . . The same is true of simple, nonburdensome local rules . . ..” (citation omitted)).
Failure to comply with this Order may result in dismissal without further notice.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that, within twenty-one (21) days from entry of this
Order, Plaintiff Robert Organ shall notify the Clerk in writing of his current address or otherwise
show cause why this action should not be dismissed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
THE HONORABLE GREGORY J. FOURATT
UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
