IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS JONESBORO DIVISION CLEOPHUS FRANKLIN ADC#88453 v. PLAINTIFF No.3:11-cv-248-DPM-BD COURTIS WALKER, Prosecuting Attorney, Mississippi County; and DOES, Blytheville Police DEFENDANTS ORDER Cleophus Franklin, an inmate housed at the Mississippi County Detention Center, filed this ยง 1983 lawsuit lastfall. His original complaint and first amended complaint gave the Court too few facts to determine whether he could state a claim for relief. So the Court ordered Franklin to submit a second amended complaint by 13 February 2012. In that complaint, Franklin was ordered to do several things: identify the individuals who were responsible for detaining him without due process; set out facts supporting his claim of an unconstitutional county policy; and clarify whether he is suing the Defendants in their individual capacities, if he seeks money damages. Franklin has not filed the required second amended complaint, despite being warned that failure to comply could result in dismissal of his case. Franklin has written letters to the Court since the order to amend was filed. But he has not provided facts necessary for this case to go forward. This case is therefore dismissed, without prejudice, for failure to prosecute. So Ordered. D.P. Marshall Jr. United States District Judge 2
