United States District Court, S.D. Georgia, Savannah Division
May 11, 2015
RODERICK BO JACKSON, Plaintiff,
TIMOTHY RUFFINI, Assistant District Attorney; AL ST. LAWRENCE, Sherriff; and KEVIN JOSEPH GROGAN, Detective; Defendants.
WILLIAM T. MOORE, Jr., District Judge.
Before the Court is the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation (Doc. 4), to which objections have been filed (Doc. 6). In his report and recommendation, the Magistrate Judge recommends that the case be dismissed for lack of prosecution due to Plaintiff's failure to complete and return the appropriate Prison Litigation Reform Act ("PLRA") paperwork. (Doc. 4 at 1.) However, Plaintiff states in his objections that he attempted to complete the paperwork, but the forms provided by the Court were lost by prison personnel. (Doc. 6 at 1.) Plaintiff now requests that the Court resend the forms necessary for him to proceed in this case.
After careful consideration, the Court GRANTS Plaintiff's request. Accordingly, the Court DEFERS ruling on the report and recommendation. The Clerk of Court is ORDERED to resend to Plaintiff the PLRA paperwork outlined in the Magistrate Judge's November 20, 2014 order. (Doc. 3.) Plaintiff shall have thirty days to complete and return the necessary forms. Failure to comply with this order by June 20, 2015 shall result in the dismissal of Plaintiff's case without prejudice.
