Williams v. Morgan County Correctional Facility (JTS)
MEMORANDUM AND OPINION as set forth in following order. Signed by Chief District Judge Thomas A Varlan on 12/8/17. (c/m to Coy Williams)(ABF)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF TENNESSEE
CORRECTIONAL FACILITY, and
This pro se prisoner’s civil rights action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 was filed on April 28,
2017 [Doc. 5]. On October 25, 2017, the Court entered a Memorandum and Order, screening the
complaint to determine whether, inter alia, the pleading failed to state a claim which would entitle
Plaintiff to relief under § 1983 [Doc. 6]. The Court found that the complaint, as pled, failed to
state a claim, but that it might state a claim if Plaintiff amended certain allegations [Id.]. Thus, the
Court allowed Plaintiff thirty days from that date to amend those allegations [Id.].
More than thirty days have passed, and Plaintiff has failed to amend his complaint or
otherwise respond to the Court’s order. Therefore, this case will be DISMISSED for failure to
state a claim for relief, 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2), and for Plaintiff’s failure to prosecute and to comply
with the orders of this Court, Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b).
AN APPROPRIATE ORDER WILL ENTER.
s/ Thomas A. Varlan
