UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF TENNESSEE
JAMES TIMOTHY HALL,
BEDFORD COUNTY JAIL and
This pro se prisoner’s civil rights action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 was filed on September
29, 2017 [Doc. 2]. On October 19, 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. 3]. 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 twenty-one days from that date to amend those allegations [Id.].
More than twenty-one 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 JUDGMENT ORDER WILL ENTER.
