IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES FOR THE
MIDDLE DISTRICT OF ALABAMA, NORTHERN DIVISION
WILBUR LEE ELLISON,
STATE OF ALABAMA BOARD OF
PARDONS AND PAROLES, in
their individual and
CIVIL ACTION NO.
Now before the court is plaintiff’s objection to
the United States Magistrate Judge’s order (doc. no.
20) that he file an amended complaint on or before
October 20, 2014.
After an independent and de novo
review of the record, it is ORDERED as follows:
(1) The objection (doc. no. 31) is overruled.
(2) Plaintiff must file an amended complaint on or
before November 27, 2014.
(3) This case is referred back to the magistrate
judge for additional proceedings.
Plaintiff must amend his complaint to name as a
defendant each individual member of the parole board,
because the law does not allow the Board of Pardons and
Paroles to be sued as an entity.
Also, as plaintiff
seeks injunctive and declaratory relief, he must in his
amended complaint allege facts demonstrating how the
actions of the named defendants currently, and/or in
the immediate future will, harm him.
To the extent he
seeks damages, he also must allege facts showing that
the named defendants harmed him during the two years
prior to the filing of his initial complaint.
DONE, this the 6th day of November, 2014.
/s/ Myron H. Thompson
