IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
KEVIN LEE JOHNSON
CASE NO. 3:16-CV-219-BD
DETENTION CENTER, et al.
Mr. Johnson has moved to amend his complaint. (Docket entry #36) Defendants
objected to Mr. Johnson’s motion because he did not attach a proposed amended
complaint, thus allowing him to “‘plead around’ Defendants’ Motion for Summary
Judgment.” (#37) Mr. Johnson subsequently filed his proposed amended complaint. (#38)
Based on a review of both Mr. Johnson’s original complaint and his amended
complaint, the motion to amend (#27) is GRANTED. In his amended complaint, Mr.
Johnson clarifies the claims made in his original complaint. The Clerk, however, is
instructed to terminate Defendants Cody and Allen as party Defendants.
In addition, Mr. Johnson has moved for leave to propound fourteen additional
interrogatories to the Defendants. (#40) The Court cannot rule on that motion without
first reviewing the proposed interrogatories. Mr. Johnson has fourteen days to supplement
his motion with the proposed interrogatories. Defendants will have fourteen days from
the date the supplement is filed to respond to Mr. Johnson’s motion.
IT IS SO ORDERED, this 20th day of June, 2017.
