ORDER directing the Clerk to close Brooks v. Rorex, 3:17-cv-00090 BSM, as the case was created in error. The 1 complaint should be filed as a new filing in Brooks v. Cox, et al., 3:17-cv-00055 DPM. Signed by Chief Judge Brian S. Miller on 4/27/2017. (jak)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
CASE NO. 3:17-CV-00090 BSM
Plaintiff Jeremie Brooks submitted a complaint [Doc. No. 1] alleging that “Steve
Rorex et al” are responsible for denying his request to see a mental health professional while
incarcerated. These are the same allegations he made in Brooks v. Cox, et al., Case No. 3:17CV-00055 DPM (E.D. Ark.). In Cox, Brooks was directed to file an amended complaint to
clarify his allegations. It appears his complaint [Doc. No. 1] was intended as an amended
complaint in Cox rather than a complaint to create a new lawsuit. Indeed, Brooks has not
submitted a new filing fee or a motion to proceed in forma pauperis to establish a new case.
Therefore, the clerk’s office is directed to close Brooks v. Rorex, Case No. 3:17-CV00090 BSM, as the case was created in error. The complaint [Doc. No. 1] should be filed
as a new filing in Brooks v. Cox, et al., Case No. 3:17-CV-00055 DPM.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 27th day of April 2017.
