IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS PINE BLUFF DIVISION ROBERT BRYAN HOLT, ADC #104652 v. LARRY NORRIS, et al. ORDER By Order dated June 18, 2009 (DE #3), this Court granted plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis in this action filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 1983. However, finding plaintiff's complaint too vague and conclusory to enable the Court to determine whether it is frivolous, fails to state a claim, or states a legitimate claim, the Court directed plaintiff to submit an amended complaint within thirty days. Plaintiff has now submitted an amended complaint (DE #5). . Having reviewed the original and amended complaints, and construing them together, it now appears to the Court that service is appropriate for defendant Dr. Scott. Accordingly, IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that service is appropriate for the defendant Dr. Scott. The 5:09CV00167SWW/HLJ DEFENDANTS PLAINTIFF Clerk of the Court shall prepare summons for the defendant and the United States Marshal is hereby directed to serve a copy of the original (DE #2) and amended complaints (DE #5) and summons on defendant in care of Humphries and Lewis Law Firm, P.O. Box 20670, White Hall, AR 71612, without prepayment of fees and costs or security therefore. IT IS SO ORDERED this 23rd day of July, 2009. __________________________________ United States Magistrate Judge 1
