Prasad v. Facebook et al Doc. 10 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF VIRGINIA Richmond Division SUNDARI K. PRASAD, Plaintiff, V. Civil Action No. 3:17CV391 FACEBOOK,e/fl/., Defendants. MEMORANDUM OPINION Plaintiff, a Virginia inmate proceeding pro se and informapauperis, filed this 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action. In order to state a viable claim under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, a plaintiff must allege that a person acting under color of state law deprived him or her of a constitutional right or of a right conferred by a law of the United States. See Dowe v. Tola! Action Against Poverty in Roanoke Valley, 145 F.3d 653,658 (4th Cir. 1998) (citing 42 U.S.C. § 1983). Plaintiff's current allegations fail to provide each defendant with fair notice of the facts and legal basis upon which his or her liability rests. See Bell Atl. Corp. v. Twombly, 550 U.S. 544, 555 (2007) (quoting Conley v. Gibson, 355 U.S. 41,47 (1957)). Accordingly, by Memorandum Order entered on February 15, 2018, the Court directed Plaintiffto submita particularized complaint within fourteen (14) days of the date of entry thereof. The Court warned Plaintiffthat the failure to submit the particularized complaint would result in the dismissal of the action. More than fourteen (14) days have elapsed since the entry of the February 15,2018 Memorandum Order. Plaintiff failed to submit a particularized complaint or otherwise respond Dockets.Justia.com
