C/A No.: 1:17-412-DCN-SVH
Jerome McDaniel (“Plaintiff”), proceeding pro se, filed this action on May 10,
2016 in the Richland County Court of Common Pleas. [ECF No. 1-1]. Defendants
removed the case to this court on February 9, 2017. [ECF No. 1]. On June 9, 2017,
Defendants filed a motion for summary judgment. [ECF No. 16]. 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 July 10, 2017. [ECF No. 17]. 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 July 28,
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.
