UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
January 9, 2012
RICHARD PIERCE SUMNER, JR., PLAINTIFF,
EXCEL TEMPS SERVICES, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: J. Phil Gilbert District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on the Court's November 30, 2011, order for plaintiff Richard Pierce Sumner, Jr., to show cause on or before December 16, 2011, why this case should not be dismissed without prejudice for failure to timely effect service (Doc. 7). In that order, the Court warned Sumner that if he failed to respond to the order in a timely manner, the Court would dismiss this action. Sumner has not responded to the order to show cause. For this reason, as it warned Sumner it would do, the Court DISMISSES this action pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(m) without prejudice for failure to timely effect service and DIRECTS the Clerk of Court to close this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
J. Phil Gilbert
