United States District Court, D. South Carolina
September 11, 2014
Gregory Michael Cooley, Plaintiff,
Carolyn W. Colvin, Commissioner of Social Security Administration, Defendant.
SHIVA V. HODGES, Magistrate Judge.
This matter comes before the court on a review of the docket in this case, which reveals that Plaintiff has failed to timely file his brief. Defendant filed an answer and the administrative record of the underlying proceedings on August 5, 2014. [Entries #10, #11]. Pursuant to Local Civil Rule 83VII.04 (D.S.C.), Plaintiff's brief was due on September 8, 2014. Plaintiff has not yet filed a brief in this matter. As such, it appears to the court that Plaintiff wishes to abandon this action. Based on the foregoing, Plaintiff is directed to advise the court whether he wishes to continue with this case and to file a brief by September 19, 2014. Plaintiff is further advised that if he fails to respond, this action will be recommended for dismissal with prejudice for failure to prosecute. See Davis v. Williams, 588 F.2d 69, 70 (4th Cir. 1978); Fed.R.Civ.P. 41(b).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
