IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
CALVIN RAY MCDANIEL
MIKE ALLEN, et al.
By Order dated September 19, 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 Coleman, Bonner, and Childress. Accordingly,
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that service is appropriate for the Defendants Ronnie
Coleman, Teresa Bonner, and Mandy Childress. 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 without prepayment of fees and costs
or security therefore.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 1st day of October, 2011.
