IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF VIRGINIA
PERCELL WASHINGTON WILLIAMS,
Civil Action No. 3:17CV37
MICHELE WINSLOW-PICHARDO, et al.,
Plaintiff, a federal inmate proceeding pro se and informa paupehs, filed this 42 U.S.C.
§ 1983 action. In order to state a viable claim under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, a plaintiff must allege
that a person acting under color of state law deprived him or her of a constitutional right or of a
right conferred by a law of the United States. See Dowe v. Total Action Against Poverty in
Roanoke Valley, 145 F.3d 653, 658 (4th Cir. 1998) (citing 42 U.S.C. § 1983). Plaintiff failed to
provide each defendant with fair notice of the fact and law upon which his liability rests.
Accordingly, by Memorandum Order entered on May 24, 2017, the Court directed Plaintiff to
submit a particularized complaint within fourteen (14) days of the date of entry thereof. The
Court warned Plaintiff that the failure to submit the particularized complaint would result in the
dismissal of the action.
More than fourteen (14) days have elapsed since the entry of the May 24, 2017
Memorandum Order. Plaintiff failed to submit a particularized complaint or otherwise respond
to the May 24, 2017 Memorandum Order. Accordingly, the action will be DISMISSED
An appropriate order will accompany this Memorandum Opinion.
John A. Gibney, Jr. ,
United States District Judge
