IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
January 17, 2006
VICTORIA HOPSON, PLAINTIFF,
TACO BELL CORPORATION, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Murphy, Chief District Judge
On December 19, 2005, this Court ordered Plaintiff Victoria Hopson to show cause in writing, on or before January 3, 2006, why her claims against Defendant Taco Bell Corporation shall not be DISMISSED with prejudice to refiling (see Doc. 31). The Clerk of Court mailed a copy of the Order to Victoria Hopson at her last known address, 450 N. Sixth Street, Apt. 33E, East St. Louis, Illinois 62201. Nothing has been filed.
The Court finds that Plaintiff has failed to prosecute her action and has repeatedly failed to comply with the rules and orders of the Court. For these reasons, dismissal is appropriate pursuant to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 37 and 41(b).
The Court notes that this action was previously consolidated with the case of Atiya McCray, Cause No. 05-258-GPM. The consolidation order is hereby VACATED. Defendant's motion to dismiss (Doc. 29) is GRANTED, and this action is DISMISSED with prejudice. Defendant is awarded its costs and attorneys' fees. The Clerk of Court is DIRECTED to enter judgment accordingly.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
