IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
August 9, 2011
IKE J. EASLEY, JR., INMATE #N-21627, PLAINTIFF,
MICHAEL V. NEAL, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Reagan, District Judge:
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Defendant, Michael V. Neal, has yet to be served. On May 24, 2011, the Court extended the time for service, ordering Plaintiff to provide additional information to the Clerk of Court to identify Neal on or before June 23, 2011 (Doc. 10). On July 5, 2011, the Court again extended the time for service to August 4, 2011 as it appeared the Plaintiff was attempting to obtain contact information as to Neal (Doc. 12). The Court's July 5, 2011 Order informed Plaintiff that failure to identify or serve Neal would result in his dismissal without prejudice from this action. The extended time afforded by the Court has elapsed. Plaintiff failed to provide the Clerk of Court with any further information as ordered. Michael V. Neal is therefore DISMISSED from this action without prejudice pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(m).
Accordingly, as Defendant Neal is the last remaining defendant, this case is HEREBY DISMISSED without prejudice. The Clerk is DIRECTED to CLOSE this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
MICHAEL J. REAGAN United States District Judge
