IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
CLIFTON JAMES WILLIAMS, SR
CENTRAL ARKANSAS TRANSIT and
DINNIS WICKER, Claim Manager,
Central Arkansas Transit
Williams has provided more details about his finances. His income is
limited and his bills are substantial. He can't afford to pay the filing fee. He
may therefore proceed in forma pauperis. The motion to reconsider, NQ 5, is
granted.* The Court must, though, screen Williams's complaint. 28 U.S.C. §
1915(e). Williams says Wicker is a claim manager for Central Arkansas
Transit. But he doesn't say in his complaint or other filings how Wicker hurt
him or what he did wrong. Williams's claims against Wicker are therefore
dismissed without prejudice for failure to state a claim. The claims against
Central Arkansas Transit can go forward. The Clerk should prepare and
deliver a summons, along with a copy of the complaint, to the U.S. Marshal
for service on Central Arkansas Transit.
*The Court directs the Clerk to amend the docket.
