Bell v. Unknown
MEMORANDUM OPINION. See for complete details. Signed by District Judge Henry E. Hudson on 05/26/2017. (mailed copy to pro se Plaintiff) (nbrow)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF VIRGINIA
ERICK L. BELL,
CLERK, U.S. DISTRICT COURT
Civil Action No. 3: 17CV240-HEH
(Dismissing Civil Rights Action Without Prejudice)
By Memorandum Order entered on April 18, 2017, the Court conditionally
docketed Plaintiffs action. The Court directed Plaintiff to return his in forma pauperis
affidavit and affirm his intention to pay the full filing fee by signing and returning a
consent to the collection of fees form. The Court warned Plaintiff that a failure to
comply with either of the above directives within thirty (30) days of the date of entry
thereof would result in summary dismissal of the action. The Court also indicated that if
Plaintiff did not wish to file a civil complaint in the United States District Court for the
Eastern District of Virginia, Plaintiff should take no action, and the case would be
dismissed without prejudice.
Plaintiff has not responded to the April 18, 2017 Memorandum Order. Plaintiff
failed to return the in forma pauper is affidavit and a consent to collection of fees form.
As a result, he does not qualify for in forma pauperis status. Furthermore, he has not
paid the statutory filing fee for the instant action. See 28 U.S.C. § 1914(a). Based on
Plaintiffs inaction, the Court assumes that Plaintiff does not wish to prosecute an action
in this Court. Accordingly, this action will be dismissed without prejudice.
An appropriate Order shall issue.
HENRY E. HUDSON
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
