Allen v. Lawrence et al
ORDER adopting 12 Recommended Disposition in all respects. Allen's motion for a preliminary injunction, 10 , is denied. An in forma pauperis appeal from this Order would not be taken in good faith. Signed by Chief Judge Brian S. Miller on 1/7/2016. (jak)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
STEVEN MARQUELL DESHUN ALLEN
CASE NO. 3:15CV00248 BSM
Craighead County Detention Center, et al.
Plaintiff Steven Allen’s motion for injunctive relief [Doc. No. 10] is very concerning
because he alleges the Craighead County jail is continuing to intentionally refuse to permit
him to receive medical treatment for an injury to his nose that occurred when he was abused
at the jail. He states that his nose injury resulted from the abuse that forms the basis of this
lawsuit. From the record, it is impossible to determine whether he can prove these
statements, but the partial recommended disposition submitted by United States Magistrate
Judge J. Thomas Ray is accurate that Allen has failed to meet the stringent burden of
showing that injunctive relief is appropriate. For that reason, the recommended disposition
is adopted in all respects, and Allen's motion for a preliminary injunction [Doc. No. 10] is
denied. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3), an in forma pauperis appeal from this order
would not be taken in good faith.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 7th day of January 2016.
