CLAUDE EDWARD FINLEY
ADC # 101945
J. BAUMGARDNER, Sergeant,
North Central Unit; et al.
Having reviewed Plaintiff’s Amended Complaint (Doc. No. 14) for screening purposes,1 the
Court concludes service is appropriate for Defendants J. Baumgardner, M. Smith, and Eddie Selvey.
As Plaintiff has not provided first names for two of these defendants, the Court asks for the
assistance of the Arkansas Department of Correction Compliance Office in perfecting service.
Following are the names and job titles (as they appear in Plaintiff’s Complaint) of those defendants
who have not been fully identified.
1. “J. Baumgardner,” a Sergeant at the ADC North Central Unit;
2. “M. Smith,” a Sergeant at the ADC North Central Unit;
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that the Clerk of Court shall prepare Summonses for
Defendants Baumgardner, Smith, and Selvey and the United States Marshal shall serve a copy of the
Summons, Amended Complaint (Doc. No. 14), and this Order on defendants without prepayment
of fees and costs or security therefore. Service for all defendants should be through Arkansas
Department of Correction Compliance Division, P.O. Box 20550, Pine Bluff, AR 71612.
The Prison Litigation Reform Act requires federal courts to screen prisoner complaints
seeking relief against a governmental entity, officer, or employee. 28 U.S.C. Sect. 1915A(a).
DATED this 25th day of January, 2016.
