IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS WESTERN DIVISION BYRON L. CONWAY, ADC #113285 v. LARRY NORRIS, et al. ORDER By Order dated June 18, 2009 (DE #5), this Court granted plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis in this action filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 1983. However, finding plaintiff's complaint too vague and conclusory to enable the Court to determine whether it is frivolous, fails to state a claim, or states a legitimate claim, the Court directed plaintiff to submit an amended complaint within thirty days. Plaintiff has now submitted an amended complaint (DE #9). Having reviewed the original and amended complaints, and construing them together, it now appears to the Court that service is appropriate. Accordingly, IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that service is appropriate for the defendants Larry Norris, Ronald Dobbs, Kay Howell, Randy Watson, Gary Burton, Jamie Johnson, Lt. Belt, Sgt. R. Holloway, Mrs. Crosby, Dr. P. Edwards, Jay Moore, J. Henderson, Larry Ragland, and Kevin Thomas. The Clerk of the Court shall prepare summons for the defendants and the United States Marshal is hereby directed to serve a copy of the original (DE #2) and amended complaints (DE #9) and summons on defendants in care of 4:09CV00409HLJ DEFENDANTS PLAINTIFF the Arkansas Board of Correction and Community Punishment Compliance Division, P.O. Box 20550, Pine Bluff, AR 71612-0550, without prepayment of fees and costs or security therefore. 1 IT IS SO ORDERED this 13th day of July, 2009. __________________________________ United States Magistrate Judge 2
