IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
ADC # 113043
BUTLER, Doctor; et al.
The Court has reviewed the Proposed Findings and Recommended Disposition submitted
by United States Magistrate Judge Joe J. Volpe and Plaintiff’s objections. After carefully
considering the objections and making a de novo review of the record, the Court concludes that the
Proposed Findings and Recommended Disposition should be, and hereby are, approved and adopted
in their entirety as this Court's findings in all respects.1
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that:
Defendants Does and Arkansas Department of Correction be DISMISSED without
prejudice due to Plaintiff’s failure to state viable claims against them.
SO ORDERED this 8th day of December, 2015.
JAMES M. MOODY, JR.
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
In Plaintiff’s objections, Plaintiff asks that the “names signed to the grievances” be added to his
claims. Plaintiff fails to allege how each personally violated his rights. Further, a prison official's
denial of grievances is insufficient to impose liability under § 1983. See Rowe v. Norris, 198 Fed.
Appx. 579(8th Cir.2006). Accordingly, Plaintiff’s request is denied.
