IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
MARK STODOLA, Little Rock Mayor, and
BRUCE T. MOORE, Little Rock City Manager,
Both Individually and in Their Official Capacities
The Court screened Skrable' s complaint, concluding that he stated
plausible claims against Mayor Stodola, but not against City Manager Moore
or City Attorney Carpenter. NQ 3. The day after the Court ruled, Skrable filed
an amended complaint alleging more facts against Moore. NQ 4. The Court
must now screen Skrable' s new pleading. 28 U.S. C. § 1915(e) (2). Skrable says
that Moore banned him from all city-owned buildings and barred him from
personal contact with city employees. NQ 4. This allegation states plausible
Fourteenth Amendment and First Amendment claims against Moore. The
merits of those claims remain to be seen.
The Court directs the Clerk to prepare summons for Moore. The
United States Marshal shall serve the summons, the complaint, NQ 2, the
amended complaint, NQ 4, and this Order on Moore without prepayment of
fees and costs or security.
The Court directs Skrable to familiarize himself with this Court's
http:/ jwww.are.uscourts.gov /court-info/local-rules-and-
orders/local-rules, and the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Even though pro
se, Skrable must follow all these rules. For example, the incorporation of one
complaint into another is not allowed and creates difficulties for all. Any
future proposed amended complaint must be complete. FED. R. CIV. P. 8.
