IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
CITY OF LITTLE ROCK
1. Morgan's motion to proceed in forma pauperis, NQ 1, will hang fire.
Morgan should supplement his motion. He must clarify his monthly gross
and net wages from each of his jobs. He should also give details about his
truck- model year, value, and any debt. Morgan may be able to pay the filing
fee if given a few months to do so. Supplement due by 30 May 2014.
Morgan's motion to appoint counsel, NQ 3, is denied without
prejudice. Slaughter v. City of Maplewood, 731 F.2d 587, 590 (8th Cir. 1984).
Morgan has some resources. He has made some effort to find a lawyer. He
should keep trying. Most importantly, the merits of his case are unclear. It
is just too early to tell.
3. Morgan's complaint is too general and incomplete. He must file an
amended complaint. It is not clear which claims of discrimination Morgan
made to the EEOC. He should attach his EEOC charge and right-to-sue letter
(again). He should also clarify who did exactly what, when each act of
alleged discrimination occurred, and what he is asking the Court to do about
it. Amended complaint due by 30 May 2014. Failure to amend by that date
will result in the dismissal of this case without prejudice. Local Rule 5.5(c)(2).
