IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
RICKY WOFFORD, JR.
DOC HOLLADAY, Sheriff,
Pulaski County; et al.
On April 4, 2016, I ordered service for, among others, Defendant J. Smith. (Doc. No. 7.)
Summons for this Defendant was returned unexecuted because no nurse by the name of J. Smith is
employed at the Pulaski County Detention Facility. (Doc. No. 13.) Now, if Plaintiff’s claims against
this Defendant are to proceed, he must provide a viable address for J. Smith within fifteen days of
this Order’s entry. See Lee v. Armontrout, 991 F.2d 487, 489 (8th Cir. 1993) (per curiam) (holding
that it is a pro se plaintiff’s responsibility to provide proper addresses for defendants).
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that Plaintiff should provide a viable address at which
service for Defendant J. Smith may be attempted within fifteen days of this Order’s entry. If he fails
to do so, the Court will recommend Defendant Smith’s dismissal without prejudice.
DATED this 3rd day of May, 2016.
JOE J. VOLPE
UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
