IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS JONESBORO DIVISION PLAINTIFF SHARON TIMMONS v. No. 3:17-cv-107-DPM DEFENDANT L.D. GIBSON ORDER 1. Timmons' s motion to proceed in forma pauperis, NQ 3, is granted. She has no assets, very little income, and the usual bills. 2. The Court must screen her complaint before ordering service. 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2). Timmons and Gibson are both Arkansawyers, so there's no jurisdiction based on diversity of citizenship. 28 U.S.C. § 1332. And Timmons's dispute with Gibson about whether he has a copy of her grandmother's will does not raise any question of federal law. 28 U.S.C. § 1331. So the Court lacks subject matter jurisdiction, and will dismiss Timmons' s complaint without prejudice. So Ordered. D .P. Marshall Jr. United States District Judge
