This is a civil action filed by a state prisoner. This matter is before the Court because of
Plaintiff’s failure to comply with the magistrate judge’s order (ECF No. 7) of May 23, 2012. A
review of the record indicates that the magistrate judge ordered Plaintiff to submit the item needed
to render this case into “proper form” within twenty-one (21) days, and that if he failed to do so, this
case would be dismissed without prejudice. Specifically, the magistrate judge directed Plaintiff to
sign the Complaint on the signature page (page 5) and return it to the Clerk’s Office in Columbia.
Plaintiff has failed to respond to the magistrate judge’s order.
Accordingly, the above-captioned case is dismissed without prejudice. The Clerk of Court
shall close the file.*
IT IS SO ORDERED.
