Green v. Ringwood et al
ORDER directing the Clerk of the Court to prepare summons and the U.S. Marshal to serve summons, original and amended complaints on defts., the U.S. Attorney and the U.S. Attorney General without prepayment of fees therefor. Signed by Magistrate Judge Henry L. Jones, Jr on 9/29/09. (bkp)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS HELENA DIVISION FRANKIE GREEN, REG. #11382-035 v. MR. RINGWOOD, et al. ORDER Plaintiff, a federal inmate proceeding pro se, has paid the $350.00 filing fee in this federal civil rights (Bivens) action, and has been granted leave to proceed in forma pauperis for purposes of service, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915 (DE ##11, 17). By Order dated September 10, 2009, this Court directed plaintiff to file a second amended complaint, finding plaintiff's original and amended complaints too vague and conclusory for the Court to determine whether his claim is frivolous, fails to state a claim for relief, or does state a legitimate cause of action (DE #17). Plaintiff has now submitted his second amended complaint (DE #19). Having reviewed such, the Court finds service appropriate at this time. Accordingly, IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that service is appropriate for defendants Mr. Ringwood, Mr. Ponder, Mr. Davis, T.C. Outlaw, Ms. Byaum, and Ms. White. The Clerk of the Court shall prepare summons for the defendants and the United States Marshal is directed to serve a copy of the original and amended complaints (DE ##1, 15, 19) and summons on the defendants, the United States Attorney for this district, and the United States Attorney General, without prepayment of fees and costs or security therefore. IT IS SO ORDERED this 29th day of September, 2009. ________________________________ United States Magistrate Judge 1 2:09CV00070HLJ DEFENDANTS PLAINTIFF
