IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
BOBBY RAY CLAYTON
CASE NO. 3:16-CV-00017-DPM-BD
DETENTION CENTER, et al.
Bobby Ray Clayton, an inmate at the Craighead County Detention Center
(“Detention Center”), filed this lawsuit without the help of a lawyer under 42 U.S.C.
§ 1983. (Docket entry #1) Mr. Clayton is proceeding on eighth amendment deliberateindifference claims against Defendants Dacus, Allison, Hall, and Hicks.
In his original complaint, Mr. Clayton named the Craighead County Detention
Center as a Defendant. He has now filed an amended complaint, properly omitting the
Detention Center as a Defendant and naming Defendants Dacus, Allison, Hall, and Hicks
as parties. (#5) See Owens v. Scott County Jail, 328 F.3d 1026, 1027 (8th Cir. 2003)
(county jail is not an entity subject to suit under § 1983).
The amended complaint supersedes the original complaint. Thus, Craighead
County Detention Center is hereby dismissed as a Defendant. The Clerk of Court is
directed to amend the docket sheet to reflect this change.
DATED this 11th day of February, 2016.
