IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS HELENA DIVISION CLARENCE R. SMITH, JR., ADC #132970 v. LARRY NORRIS, et al. ORDER By Order dated January 26, 2010 (DE #3), this Court granted plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis in this action filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. However, finding plaintiff's complaint too vague and conclusory to enable the Court to determine whether it is frivolous, fails to state a claim, or states a legitimate claim, the Court directed plaintiff to submit an amended complaint within thirty days. Plaintiff has now submitted an amended complaint (DE #6). Having reviewed the original and amended complaints, and construing them together, it now appears to the Court that service is appropriate. Accordingly, IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that service is appropriate for the defendants Norris, Outlaw, Bolse, Kelley, Barnes, M. Humphrey, McNeary, Cole, Harris, McDowell, and Robinson. The Clerk of the Court shall prepare summons for the defendants and the United States Marshal is hereby directed to serve a copy of the original (DE #3) and amended complaints (DE #6) and summons on defendants in care 2:10CV00007HLJ DEFENDANTS PLAINTIFF
of the Arkansas Board of Correction and Community Punishment Compliance Division, P.O. Box 20550, Pine Bluff, AR 71612-0550, without prepayment of fees and costs or security therefore.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 1st day of March, 2010.
