IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
HAROLD SHAWGNESSY SIMS
NO: 3:16CV00099 JM/PSH
KING et al
Plaintiff Harold Shawgnessy Sims, who was formerly held at the Craighead County
Detention Center, filed a pro se complaint on April 11, 2016, and service was ordered. Service for
King, and Felicia King, both of whom are identified as employees of Tiger Commissary at the
Craighead County Detention Center, was unsuccessful at the detention center. Doc. Nos. 21 & 22.
Sims has now filed two motions for service. Doc. Nos. 26 & 27.
Felicia King’s last known home address has been provided and filed under seal in another
case. The address for Tiger Commissary was provided in that same case. See Moore v. King,
ED/AR No. 3:15CV00370, Doc. Nos. 24 & 27. Accordingly, service for King will be attempted at
Tiger Commissary, and service for Felicia King will be provided at the private address filed under
Sims has also filed what has been docketed as a motion for an order, in which he appears to
request service of the complaint and an order directing the U.S. Marshal to retrieve documents from
his private residence, as well as his impounded automobile from a Beebe, Arkansas, business. Doc.
No. 28. Sims’ request for service has already been made in his other motions, and the Marshal’s
role is not to retrieve or maintain Sims’ personal property. His motion will therefore be denied.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED THAT:
Sims’ motions for service, Doc. Nos. 26 & 27 are GRANTED to the extent that
service will be attempted for King and Felicia King.
The Clerk of the Court is directed to prepare a summons for King and Felicia King,
and the United States Marshal is hereby directed to serve a copy of the summons, complaint,
addendum, and amended complaint, Doc. Nos. 2, 7, & 10, and this order, upon them, without
prepayment of fees and costs or security therefor.
Service for Felicia King should be at the addresses provided under seal in Moore v.
King, ED/AR No. 3:15CV00370, Doc. No. 27.
Service for King should be attempted at Tiger Correctional Services, 515 West
Washington Ave., Jonesboro, AR 72401.
Sims’ motion for an order is DENIED. Doc. No. 28.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 30th day of January, 2017.
