United States District Court, Eastern District of Tennessee, Knoxville
December 17, 2014
EDWARD B. ZANES, JR., Plaintiff,
SULLIVAN COUNTY JAIL, et al., Defendants.
RONNIE GREER UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
This is a pro se prisoner's civil rights complaint under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Because the plaintiff did not pay the $350.00 filing fee nor submit an application to proceed in forma pauperis, plaintiff was given thirty days to pay the filing fee or to submit the proper documents to proceed in forma pauperis. Plaintiff's copy of that order, which was mailed to him at his last known address of Sullivan County Detention Center, was returned undelivered on December 1, 2014, with the notation "no longer at this facility." Plaintiff bears the burden of prosecuting his action, which includes informing the Court of his correct mailing address, and he has not done so.
Accordingly, this action will be DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE for failure to prosecute. Fed.R.Civ.P. 41(b); Jourdan v. Jabe, 951 F.2d 108 (6th Cir. 1991). The Court will CERTIFY that any appeal from this action would not be taken in good faith and would be totally frivolous. Fed. R. App. P. 24.
AN APPROPRIATE ORDER WILL ENTER.
