IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN
On September 5, 2013, the court entered an order advising plaintiff Richard Hoeft
that he had until September 13, 2013, to advise the court whether he intends to pursue
this lawsuit and warning him that the lawsuit would be dismissed without prejudice if he
failed to respond by that date. (Dkt. #34.) That date has lapsed without any response
from Hoeft. Instead, defendant Dave Schultz submitted a letter to the court requesting
the dismissal be with prejudice “due to Hoeft’s previous litigation history and repeated
disregard for court orders.” (Def.’s Letter (dkt. #35).) Accordingly,
IT IS ORDERED that:
1) this lawsuit is dismissed without prejudice and without costs for plaintiff’s
failure to prosecute; and
2) plaintiff Richard Hoeft has until September 26, 2013, to advise the court as
to why his complaint should not be dismissed with prejudice in light of
defendant’s request. If plaintiff fails to respond to this order by September
26, 2013, then the court will convert the dismissal of this lawsuit to a

dismissal with prejudice and close the case.
