An original and one copy of your objections must be received in the office of the United States District Court Clerk no later than fourteen (14) days from the date of the findings and recommendations.

Mail your objections and "Statement of Necessity" to: Clerk, United States District Court Eastern District of Arkansas 600 West Capitol Avenue, Suite A149 Little Rock, AR 72201-3325 DISPOSITION Plaintiff, currently held at the Randall Williams Correctional Facility, filed a pro se complaint on October 14, 2009, alleging that treatment for his diabetes was delayed while he was held at the Pulaski County Detention Facility. Plaintiff named eight Defendants, along with
unnamed John Does, but failed to identify any specific claims against the named individuals. On November 24, 2009, the Court entered an order directing Plaintiff to file an amended complaint which specifies the role each Defendant had in the alleged constitutional violations, and warned him that his failure to do so would result in the recommended dismissal of his complaint. Plaintiff filed his amended complaint on December 22, 2009 (docket entry #8), but the amended complaint fails to describe any constitutional violation by any of the named Defendants. The only Defendant mentioned by name in the amended complaint is Dr. Carl Johnson, who Plaintiff says may have been called before he was offered regular insulin, and possibly after Plaintiff informed staff at
the jail that he was allergic to regular insulin. Despite Plaintiff's naming of Johnson, he has not alleged that Johnson was actually contacted, but only that unnamed nurses said they would contact him. Plaintiff has failed to even name any of the other Defendants. Accordingly, Plaintiff's complaint should be dismissed for failure to comply with the Court's order. IT IS THEREFORE RECOMMENDED THAT: 1. Plaintiff's complaint be DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE for failure to comply
with the Court's order. 2. The Court certify that an in forma pauperis appeal taken from the order and judgment
dismissing this action is considered frivolous and not in good faith. DATED this 22 day of January, 2010.
