Self et al v. Does
ORDER, due to Plaintiffs failure to comply with 2 Order of 11/15/11, their complaint is dismissed, without prejudice, under Local Rule 5.5(c)(2). Signed by Chief Judge J. Leon Holmes on 2/9/2012. (jct)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
MACK OLEN SELF
and CLAY C. CLARK
On November 8, 2011, Plaintiffs Mack Olen Self and Clay C. Clark, who at the time were
inmates in the Lawrence County Jail, filed this case pro se under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. (Docket entry
#1). Neither Plaintiff paid the statutory filing fee when they filed this case; and neither moved to
proceed in forma pauperis. They were ordered to pay the filing fee or to file completed in forma
pauperis applications, including the required affidavits and prison account information sheets, on
or before December 16, 2011. (Docket entry #2).
Plaintiffs were further ordered to file an amended complaint specifically stating what injury,
if any, each of them had suffered as a result of the alleged unconstitutional conditions at the Jail, and
to specifically identify the persons responsible for causing injury. Mr. Clark filed a motion to
proceed in forma pauperis, which was granted on November 28, 2011. Mr. Self, however, has not
filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis or paid the filing fee.
Neither of the Plaintiffs has filed an amended complaint, as ordered, and the deadline for
providing the additional documentation has expired. They were warned that failure to comply with
the Court’s Order could result in dismissal of this case.
The complaint, as written, does not state a federal claim for relief because it fails to identify
the person or persons responsible for alleged misconduct; and it fails to state what injury, if any,
either Plaintiff has suffered. Messrs. Self and Clark have not complied with the Court’s Order of
November 15, 2011, and their complaint is, therefore, dismissed, without prejudice, under Local
DATED this 9th day of February, 2012.
