United States District Court, Eastern District of North Carolina, Southern Division
January 29, 2015
JAMES HAMBY, Plaintiff,
BROCK AND SCOTT, PLLC, Defendant.
JAMES C. DEVER III Chief United States District Judge
On December 15, 2014, Brock & Scott, PLLC ("defendant") filed a motion to dismiss [D.E. 8] and a supporting memorandum [D.E. 9]. The court notified James Hamby ("Hamby") about the motion to dismiss, the consequences of failing to respond, and the response deadline [D.E. 13]. See Roseboro v. Garrison. 528 F.2d 309, 310 (4th Cir. 1975) (per curiam). Hamby did not respond.
Hamby's complaint does not meet the pleading standards in Rule 8 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. See, e.g., Mallory v. Atkinson. 330 F.App'x 41, 42 (4th Cir. 2009) (per curiam) (unpublished); Campbell v. Wells Fargo Bank. N.A.. No. 5:13-CV-785-D, 2014 WL 5471911, at *2 (E.D. N.C. Oct. 22, 2014) (unpublished); Salley v. Bank of Am.. N.A.. No. 5:13-CV-753-D, 2014 WL 2768660, at *2-3 (E.D. N.C. June 18, 2014) (unpublished). Alternatively, Hamby fails to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. See Fed.R.Civ.P. 12(b)(6); see, e.g., Bryant v. Wells Fargo Bank. N.A.. 861 F.Supp.2d 646, 651-54 (E.D. N.C. 2012). Accordingly, the court GRANTS defendant's motion to dismiss [D.E. 8] and DISMISSES the complaint without prejudice.
