Plaintiff, Larry Lenn Moore, Jr., is confined in the Craighead County Detention

The Prison Litigation Reform Act requires federal courts to screen prisoner
complaints seeking relief against a governmental entity, officer, or employee. 28
U.S.C. § 1915A(a). The Court must dismiss a complaint or a portion thereof if the
prisoner has raised claims that: (a) are legally frivolous or malicious; (b) fail to state
a claim upon which relief may be granted; or (c) seek monetary relief from a
defendant who is immune from such relief. 28 U.S.C. § 1915A(b). When making this
determination, a court must accept the truth of the factual allegations contained in the
complaint, and it may consider the documents attached to the complaint. Ashcroft v.
Iqbal, 556 U.S. 662, 678 (2009); Reynolds v. Dormire, 636 F.3d 976, 979 (8th Cir.
Plaintiff alleges that his unspecified constitutional rights were violated when
he ended a consensual sexual relationship with Defendant Flecia Ann King. Plaintiff
has named Jail Administrator Hall and Sheriff Boyd as Defendants, but he has not
explained how either of them violated his constitutional rights.
The Court needs further information to complete § 1915A screening. Thus,
Plaintiff must file, within thirty days of the entry of this Order, an Amended
Complaint clarifying: (1) whether Defendant King coerced him into engaging in a
sexual relationship, and if so, how she coerced him; (2) how Defendant King
otherwise violated his constitutional rights; (3) how Defendant Hall personally
violated Plaintiff's constitutional rights; and (4) how Defendant Boyd personally
violated Plaintiff's constitutional rights.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED THAT Plaintiff must file, on or before
January 4, 2016, an Amended Complaint containing the specified information. If
he does not timely and properly do so, this case will be dismissed, without prejudice,
pursuant to Local Rule 5.5(c)(2).
IT IS SO ORDERED this 1st day of December, 2015.
