IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA
June 27, 2006
BERNIE MIMS, PLAINTIFF
UNITED STATES MARSHAL, WARDEN JOHN, DOE, SERGEANT JACKIE MCCALL, OFFICER LEDBETTER, OFFICER WEER, DEFENDANTS
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge Donetta W. Ambrose
Magistrate Judge Lisa Pupo Lenihan
The above-captioned prisoner civil rights action was transferred from the Middle District of Pennsylvania. The Middle District Court did so because the complaint referenced the "Mercer County Correction Center." The Middle District Court understood this to be a reference to the Mercer County Prison located in Mercer, Pennsylvania and so transferred the case to this court because the Mercer County Prison is located within the Western Pennsylvania Judicial District. This court has reason to believe that the reference is actually to the Mercer County Correction Center located in Mercer County, New Jersey. See United States v. Mims, No. 3:04-cr-627 (D.N.J. Doc. Nos. 8 & 11)(Doc. 8 is the superceding indictment and Doc. 11 is plea agreement for Plaintiff, both of which indicated that the location of the crime for which he was arrested and to which he ultimately pleaded guilty was in Mercer County, New Jersey).
Given this, the court will attach a form to this order and require Plaintiff to fill out the form indicating where the actions recounted in the complaint took place. He will be required to return the form to the Clerk's Office at the following address:
Clerk's Office United States District Court P.O. Box. 1805 Pittsburgh, PA 15230
Accordingly, the following order is entered.
AND NOW, this 27th day of June, 2006;
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiff fill out the attached form and return it to the Clerk's office by July 20, 2006. Failure to do so will result in the entrance of an order dismissing the case with prejudice for failure to comply with a court order and/or for failure to prosecute.
