Jones v. Lee

United States District Court, Western District of Virginia, Roanoke Division

November 3, 2014

OWAIIAN M. JONES, Plaintiff,
v.
DEPUTY LEE, et al., Defendant(s)

Owaiian M. Jones, Plaintiff, Pro se, Roanoke, VA.

MEMORANDUM OPINION

Michael F. Urbanski, United States District Judge.

Owaiin M. Jones, proceeding pro se, filed a civil rights complaint, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, while incarcerated. By its Order entered October 16, 2014, the court advised plaintiff that a failure to update a mailing address after a transfer or release from incarceration will result in dismissal of this action.

The court's mail to plaintiff has been returned as undeliverable, and plaintiff has not contacted the court since September 23, 2014. Plaintiff failed to comply with the court's Order requiring plaintiff to maintain an accurate mailing address. Therefore, the court finds that plaintiff failed to prosecute this action, pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(b), by not complying with the court's, Order. Accordingly, I dismiss the action without prejudice and deny all pending motions as moot. See Ballard v. Carlson, 882 F.2d 93, 96 (4th Cir. 1989) (stating pro se litigants are subject to time requirements and respect for court orders and dismissal is an appropriate sanction for non-compliance); Donnelly v. Johns-Manville Sales Corp., 677 F.2d 339, 340-41 (3d Cir. 1982) (recognizing a district court may sua sponte dismiss an action pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 41(b)).

The Clerk is directed to send copies of this Memorandum Opinion and the accompanying Order to the parties.

The Clerk is directed to send copies of this Order and the accompanying Memorandum Opinion to the parties.
