IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
NORMAN RAY WILSON,
CIVIL ACTION 11-00324-KD-N
Plaintiff= has filed a complaint alleging improper medical treatment while incarcerated
and a motion to proceed without prepayment of fees (Docs. 1, 2). Plaintiff’s complaint is not on
this Court=s form under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. See Local Rule 83.9(d)(1) (requiring a pro se litigant
to file his pleadings on this Court=s forms). Plaintiff’s motion to proceed without prepayment of
fees is incomplete (i.e. full name of spouse, date of last employment and salary earned at last
employment, amount of money received in last 12 months).1 Plaintiff, therefore, is ORDERED
by August 1, 2011, to complete and file this Court's form for a complaint under 42 U.S.C. '
1983 and to pay the $350.00 filing fee or, in lieu thereof, to file this Court's motion to proceed
without prepayment of fees. The new complaint will supersede the prior complaint. Thus,
Plaintiff shall not rely upon his prior complaint. Failure to comply with this order within the
prescribed time or to notify the Court immediately of a change in address will result in a
Plaintiff indicated he RECEIVED $400.00 per month in rent. If that is not a mistake,
advise the court about the location of the property, its value, etc.
recommendation of dismissal of this action for failure to prosecute and to obey the Court=s order.
Plaintiff=s present complaint is extremely brief and does not convey in a clear manner
what his claim is. Plaintiff must write legibly and describe in his own words what he is
complaining about. In pleading the amended complaint, Plaintiff is advised that his the
allegations must show plausibility in order to state a claim upon which relief can be granted .
Bell Atlantic Corp. v. Twombly, 550 U.S. 544, 127 S.Ct. 1955, 1966 (2007).
allegations must be enough to raise a right to relief above the speculative level[.]@ Id. at 1965.
That is, the allegations must be a A>plain statement= possess[ing] enough heft to >sho[w] that the
pleader is entitled to relief.=@ Id. at 1966 (second brackets in original). A[L]abels and conclusions
and a formulaic recitation of a cause of action=s elements@ are insufficient grounds for
entitlement to relief. Id. at 1959. Plaintiff is further advised that the claims that are directed to
persons acting under federal law will be treated as Bivens claims2 by the Court.
The Clerk is DIRECTED to send Plaintiff a form for a complaint under ' 1983 and for a
motion to proceed without prepayment of fees.
DONE this 30th day of June, 2011.

damages from government officials or individuals who, acting under color of federal law, have
violated his constitutional or federal statutory rights.).
