IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
December 7, 2007
OBIEKWE STEPHEN OKWUDIL UGOCHUKWU, PLAINTIFF,
FRED BALLARD, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
The records of this action indicate that Plaintiff is in the custody for the Kenosha County Sheriff's Department in Kenosha, Wisconsin. However, mail sent to him there has been returned as undeliverable. Furthermore, the Sheriff's Department has advised the Court that Plaintiff was released from their custody on December 11, 2006, almost a year ago, yet no change of address has been received from Plaintiff. The Court takes judicial notice of similar letters filed in Plaintiff's other cases. In particular, one letter addressed to this Court specifically noted that Plaintiff had "been returned to his country of origin by the United Stated Department of Immigration" See Ugochukwu v. CSC, Case No. 06-cv-418-DRH (S.D. Ill., Doc. 19, filed Dec. 22, 2006).
The Court sees no purpose in prolonging this litigation, as Plaintiff clearly has no intention of pursuing it any further. Accordingly, this action is DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE for failure to prosecute.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
