DENNIS LOCK, Petitioner,
UNITED STATES ATTORNEY, et al., Respondents.
OPINION AND ORDER
MICHAEL J. McSHANE, District Judge.
Petitioner, pro se, filed a petition for writ of mandamus (#2) on November 19, 2013. Pet. Writ of Maridamus, ECF No.2. On November 27, 2013, this Court issued an opinion denying petitioner's request. Order, Nov. 27, 2013, ECF No. 5. In consideration of petitioner's pro se status, this Court granted petitioner "until December 27, 2013 to file for appropriate relief, e.g., a claim under 42 U.S.C. § 1983." Id. Petitioner has not taken additional action since that time. Accordingly, because petitioner failed to comply with this Court's order (#5), this action is dismissed without prejudice for failure to prosecute.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
