Civil Action No. 3:17CV265-HEH
MICHAEL E. McGINTY, et aL,
(Dismissing Action Without Prejudice)
Plaintiff, a Virginia inmate proceeding pro se and informa pauperis, 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. SeeDowe v.
Total Action Against Poverty in Roanoke Valley, 145 F.3d 653, 658 (4th Cir. 1998)
(citing 42 U.S.C. § 1983). In his current complaint, Plaintiff fails to provide the
defendants with fair notice of the facts and legal basis upon which his or her liability
rests. Accordingly, by Memorandum Order entered on July 13, 2017, the Court directed
Plaintiffto submit a particularized complaint within fourteen (14) days of the date of
entry thereof. The Court warned Plaintiffthat 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 July 13, 2017
Memorandum Order. Plaintiff failed to submit a particularized complaint or otherwise
responded to the July 13, 2017 Memorandum Order. Accordingly, the action will be
dismissed without prejudice.
An appropriate order will accompany this Memorandum Opinion.
