IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
LARRY MAY, et al.
By Order dated July 17, 2012 (Doc. No. 3), this Court granted Plaintiff’s Motion 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 him to submit an Amended
Complaint within thirty days. The Court also cautioned Plaintiff that an Amended Complaint would
render the Original Complaint without legal effect, and would take the place of his Original
Complaint. Plaintiff has now submitted an Amended Complaint (Doc. No. 4). Having reviewed the
Amended Complaint, it now appears to the Court that service is appropriate for Defendants Outlaw,
Strong, Williams, Earl, Strickland, and Kelly, on Plaintiff’s due process and retaliation claims.
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that service is appropriate for the Defendants Outlaw,
Strong, Williams, Earl, Strickland, and Kelly. 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 Amended
Complaint (Doc. No. 4) and summons on these Defendants in care 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 15th day of August, 2012.
