IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
MATHEW L. STASZAK
No. 2:15CV00051 JLH-BD
Plaintiff Mathew Staszak, an inmate housed at the Federal Correctional Institution
in Forest City, Arkansas, filed this lawsuit pro se and paid his filing fee. (Docket entries
#1 and #2)
In his complaint, Mr. Staszak alleges that, during his arrest, United States Deputy
Marshal Clark Meadows assaulted him. He also alleges that the remaining members of
the arresting party negligently failed to prevent and report the assault. Mr. Staszak brings
his claims under the Federal Tort Claims Act (“FTCA”).
Because Mr. Staszak has adequately alleged an FTCA claim against the United
States of America, service is proper for that Defendant. The Clerk of Court is directed to
prepare a summons for the United States of America, and the United States Marshal is
directed to serve the Defendant with a summons and a copy of the complaint (#1). The
United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas and the United States
Attorney General should also be served. Service is to be made without prepayment of
fees or costs.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 28th day of April, 2015.
