Bell v. Vigo County Sheriff

United States District Court, Southern District of Indiana, Terre Haute Division

June 2, 2014

GRAYLON D. BELL, Petitioner,
v.
VIGO COUNTY SHERIFF, Respondent.

ENTRY AND ORDER DISMISSING ACTION

Jane Magnus-Stinson, Judge

I.

Under Rule 16(f) a district court may dismiss a case when the plaintiff fails to follow pretrial orders. See Lucien v. Breweur, 9 F.3d 26, 28 (7th Cir. 1993). Such a dismissal is one of the tools available to district courts to achieve the orderly and expeditious disposition of cases. Link v. Wabash R.R., 370 U.S. 626, 630-31 (1962).

The plaintiff has failed without explanation to supplement his petition for writ of habeas corpus as previously directed.

The court concludes that the plaintiff has abandoned this action, which shall now be dismissed without prejudice for failure to prosecute.

II.

Judgment consistent with this Entry shall now issue.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
