IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS EASTERN DIVISION DEMETRIUS A. CURTIS v. PLAINTIFF No. 2:11-cv-185-DPM-BD RONNIE WHITE, Sheriff, Phillips County; JAMES JAKOBS, Jailer, Phillips County Jail; WHITFIELDS, Jail Administrator, Phillips County Jail; ROBERT BLAKE, Assistant Jail Administrator, Phillips County Jail; JANE DOE, Ms. Jeanette, Jailer, Phillips County Jail; JAMES BELL, originally sued as Bell; and JOHN DOES, Christopher and Caldell, Trustees, Phillips County Jail DEFENDANTS ORDER Curtis has objected to Magistrate Judge Beth Deere's recommendation, Document No. 31, that the Court dismiss two claims and several defendants. On de novo review, FED. R. CIV. P. 72(b)(3), the Court adopts the recommendation with a supplemental word prompted by the objection. Curtis now says that he showed jailer James Jakobs a bite by a brown-recluse spider but received no medical attention. Document No. 32, at 2. Curtis does not allege any injury beyond a bite. In late December 2011, Judge Deere ordered Curtis to give details about his deliberate-indifference claim within two weeks or it would be dismissed. Document No. 13. Ten months is too long to wait before giving details. And while a brown recluse's bite can lead to serious consequences, Curtis alleges no injury beyond the bite itself. This belated allegation states no constitutional claim. Curtis's deliberate- indifference and mail-confiscation claims are dismissed without prejudice. All defendants except White and Bell are dismissed without prejudice. So Ordered. United States District Judge 3 I tJth~ JOI:L -2-
