IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS
(FORMER SPN #00127161)
CIVIL ACTION NO. H-17-1125
MEMORANDUM ON DISMISSAL
The plaintiff, a former inmate at the Harris County Jail, filed this civil rights action in forma
pauperis. On April21, 2017, the Clerk's Notice of Case Filing was returned to the court by the
postal service with the notation, "Return to Sender, released from custody ofHarris County Sheriffs
Office." (Docket Entry No.3).
Under Local Rule 83.4, a pro se litigant is responsible for keeping the Clerk advised in
writing of his current address. The court will send notices only to the address on file. The plaintiff
has failed to provide the court with an accurate, current address. Under the inherent powers
necessarily vested in a court to manage its own affairs, this court determines that dismissal for want
ofprosecution is appropriate. See FED. R. Crv. P. 41(b); Linkv. Wabash R.R., 370 U.S. 626 (1962);
Woodson v. Surgitek, Inc., 57 F.3d 1406, 1417 (5th Cir. 1995); 8 J. MOORE ET AL., MOORE'S
