Deutsch v. Memon
ORDER DISMISSING CASE. Signed by Judge Robert Pitman. (jf)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS
JON R. DEUTSCH,
MOHAMMAD S. MEMON,
Before the court is the above-entitled matter. On July 11, 2016, counsel for Plaintiff filed a
Notice of Settlement. (Dkt. 7). That document informed the Court “that the instant case and
disputes arising out of the issue in controversy have been settled” and represented that Plaintiff
would “submit its Agreed Motion to Dismiss with Prejudice within 30 days.” (Id.). In the one year
since the Notice of Settlement, the Court has received no additional filings in this case.
A district court may sua sponte dismiss an action for failure to prosecute or to comply with
any court order. Larson v. Scott, 157 F.3d 1030, 1031 (5th Cir. 1998). The Court’s authority to dismiss
a case for failure to prosecute is based on the Court’s inherent authority to manage and administer
its own affairs to ensure the orderly and expeditious disposition of cases. Link v. Wabash R.R. Co.,
370 U.S. 626, 630–31 (1962).
Here, Plaintiff neither submitted its Agreed Motion to Dismiss within the deadline provided
to the Court nor filed any additional motions. The Court therefore finds that this action should be
and is hereby DISMISSED for failure to prosecute. It is hereby ORDERED that this case is
SIGNED on July 14, 2017.
