http://nycourts.law.com/CourtDocumentViewer.asp?view=Document&docID=46718 Judge Scheindlin PLAINTIFF SUED the United States because a federal employee damaged his car in an accident. The government moved to dismiss the action because plaintiff failed to exhaust his administrative remedies prior to filing suit and, alternatively, because plaintiff failed to prosecute his claims. The court granted the motion and dismissed the case for failure to exhaust administrative remedies. The court also found dismissal appropriate for failure to prosecute since from the time this case was removed to federal court through the present, plaintiff has taken absolutely no action to pursue his claims. The government made numerous attempts to serve plaintiff with various papers in this case, but each package has been returned to sender. The court determined that the very fact that plaintiff was inaccessible for the last two months, without notifying the court, the government, or the Pro Se Office of a change of address, strongly suggests that he is not diligently pursuing this claim.
