United States District Court, S.D. Georgia, Savannah Division
June 15, 2015
FELTON R. SCHLEY, Plaintiff,
CHATHAM COUNTY BOARD OF EDUCATION, Defendant.
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
G.R. SMITH, Magistrate Judge.
Felton Schley brought this employment discrimination case against defendant Chatham County Board of Education on April 18, 2014. Doc. 1. Over a year later, he has done nothing to prosecute it. The Court accordingly directed Schley to show cause why his suit should not be dismissed for violating Fed.R.Civ.P. 4(m). Doc. 4. He never responded. This case therefore should be DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE. See L.R. 41(b); Link v. Wabash Railroad Co., 370 U.S. 626, 630-31 (1962) (courts have the inherent authority to dismiss claims for lack of prosecution); Mingo v. Sugar Cane Growers Co-op, 864 F.2d 101, 102 (11th Cir. 1989); Jones v. Graham, 709 F.2d 1457, 1458 (11th Cir. 1983); Floyd v. United States, No. CV491-277 (S.D. Ga. June 10, 1992).
SO REPORTED AND RECOMMENDED.
