Hodges v. Wright et al
ORDER adopting in part 9 the proposed findings and recommendations; and dismissing without prejudice defendants Wright and Parker, for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted. Out of an abundance of caution, defendant Turn Key Medical is not dismissed. Giving Hodges's complaint a liberal reading, he states his allegations against Turn Key Medical specifically enough. Signed by Chief Judge Brian S. Miller on 5/11/2017. (kdr)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
CASE NO. 4:17-CV-00043 BSM
RODDNEY WRIGHT, et al.
The proposed findings and recommendations [Doc. No. 9] submitted by United States
Magistrate Judge Jerome T. Kearney have been received along with objections from plaintiff
Keith Hodges [Doc. No. 18]. After carefully reviewing the proposed findings and
recommendations de novo, they are adopted in part. Defendants Wright and Parker are
dismissed without prejudice for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted.
Out of an abundance of caution, defendant Turn Key Medical is not dismissed because
Hodges’s complaint demonstrates his intent to hold liable Nurse Briann “or whoever is in
charge of medical here at the jail,” and the complaint identifies Turn Key Medical as the
medical provider at the jail. Amended Complaint, Doc. No. 6, at 1, 5. Giving Hodges’s
complaint a liberal reading, he states his allegations against Turn Key Medical specifically
IT IS SO ORDERED this 11th day of May 2017.
