UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN
DONALD R. STANLEY,
Case No. 17-CV-776-JPS
MILWAUKEE SECURE DETENTION
Plaintiff, a prisoner proceeding pro se, filed a complaint under 42
U.S.C. § 1983, alleging that his civil rights were violated while he was
housed at the Milwaukee Secure Detention Facility. (Docket #1). On
August 18, 2017, Magistrate Judge Nancy Joseph screened Plaintiff’s
complaint and dismissed it, noting that Plaintiff impermissibly named
only the facility where he was incarcerated and not the individuals who
purportedly violated his rights. (Docket #7 at 3–4); Buchanan-Moore v.
County of Milwaukee, 570 F.3d 824, 827 (7th Cir. 2009). Magistrate Joseph
directed him to file an amended complaint naming the responsible
individuals no later than September 22, 2017 and warned that failure to do
so could result in dismissal of this action. (Docket #7 at 4).
The September 22 deadline has passed and the Court has not
received an amended complaint or any other communication from
Plaintiff. He was warned that failure to file an amended complaint within
the prescribed period could result in dismissal of this action. See Fischer v.
Cingular Wireless, LLC, 446 F.3d 663, 665 (7th Cir. 2006). Plaintiff has not
heeded the Court’s warning and, as a result, the Court will dismiss this
action without prejudice for his failure to prosecute the same. See Civ. L.
IT IS ORDERED that this action be and the same is hereby
DISMISSED without prejudice for Plaintiff’s failure to prosecute.
The Clerk of the Court is directed to enter judgment accordingly.
Dated at Milwaukee, Wisconsin, this 10th day of October, 2017.
BY THE COURT:
U.S. District Judge
