This is a civil action filed by a pro se litigant appearing in forma pauperis . Under Local Civil Rule 73.02(B)(2) of the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina, pretrial proceedings in this action have been referred to the assigned United States Magistrate Judge. By Order dated February 21, 2014, Plaintiff was given a specific time frame in which to bring this case into proper form. Plaintiff has not complied with the court's Order, and this case is subject to dismissal for lack of prosecution and lack of compliance with an order.

The Clerk of Court is directed not to issue any summonses or forward this matter to the United States Marshal for service of process at this time because the case is subject to dismissal.

You are ordered to always keep the Clerk of Court advised in writing (Post Office Box 2317, Florence, South Carolina 29503) if your address changes for any reason, so as to assure that orders or other matters that specify deadlines for you to meet will be received by you.
