United States District Court, E.D. Virginia, Richmond Division
March 10, 2014
TIARA S. BAILEY, Plaintiff,
A. EDWARDS, et al., Defendants.
ROBERT E. PAYNE, Senior District Judge.
By Memorandum Order entered on January 8, 2014, the Court conditionally docketed this action. At that time, the Court directed Tiara S. Bailey to affirm her intention to pay the full filing fee by signing and returning a consent to the collection of fees form. The Court warned Bailey that a failure to comply with the above directive within thirty (30) days of the date of entry thereof would result in summary dismissal of the action.
Bailey has not complied with the order of this Court. Bailey failed to return the consent to collection of fees form. As a result, she does not qualify for in forma pauperis status. Furthermore, she has not paid the statutory filing fee for the instant action. See 28 U.S.C. § 1914(a). Such conduct demonstrates a willful failure to prosecute. See Fed.R.Civ.P. 41(b). Accordingly, this action will be dismissed without prejudice.
The Clerk is directed to send a copy of the Memorandum Opinion to Bailey.
