Hanson, whose address has not been provided by Plaintiff. It is well established that an IFP plaintiff

plaintiff an opportunity to provide an address for service, Defendant Jeremy Lance Hanson has not
been properly served and is hereby dismissed without prejudice.
SO ORDERED this 18th day of October 2016.
