York v. Cartledge et al
ORDER directing Plaintiff to advise the court whether he wishes to continue with this case and to file a response to Defendants' 57 MOTION for Summary Judgment by December 15, 2017. Signed by Magistrate Judge Shiva V Hodges on 12/1/2017. (mwal)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF SOUTH CAROLINA
Herbert Demond York,
Warden Larry Cartledge, Lieutenant A.
Young, and Director Michael McCall,
C/A No.: 1:16-3971-RMG-SVH
Herbert Demond York (“Plaintiff”), proceeding pro se, filed this action on
December 21, 2016. [ECF No. 1]. On October 23, 2017, Defendants filed a motion for
summary judgment. [ECF No. 57]. As Plaintiff is proceeding pro se, the court entered an
order pursuant to Roseboro v. Garrison, 528 F.2d 309 (4th Cir. 1975), advising him of
the importance of the motion and of the need for him to file an adequate response by
November 27, 2017. [ECF No. 58]. Plaintiff was specifically advised that if he failed to
respond adequately, Defendants’ motion may be granted. Id.
Notwithstanding the specific warning and instructions set forth in the court’s
Roseboro order, Plaintiff failed to respond to the motion. As such, it appears to the court
that he does not oppose the motion and wishes to abandon this action. Based on the
foregoing, Plaintiff is directed to advise the court whether he wishes to continue with this
case and to file a response to Defendants’ motion for summary judgment by December
15, 2017. Plaintiff is further advised that if he fails to respond, this action will be
recommended for dismissal with prejudice for failure to prosecute. See Davis v. Williams,
588 F.2d 69, 70 (4th Cir. 1978); Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
