ORDER directing the Clerk to prepare summons for defts and the U.S. Marshal to serve a copy of original and amended complaints and summons on defts in care of the ADC Compliance Division, P.O. Box 20550, Pine Bluff, AR 71612-0550, without prepayment of fees therefor. Signed by Magistrate Judge Henry L. Jones, Jr on 9/29/09. (bkp)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS PINE BLUFF DIVISION CHARLES ASHFORD, ADC #133975 v. BOBBY WASHINGTON, et al. ORDER By Order dated August 31, 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 some of the defendants. Accordingly, IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that service is appropriate for the defendants Bobby Washington, Walter Washington, CO Ezell, and J. Wilson. The Clerk of the Court shall prepare summons for the defendants 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 defendants in care of the Arkansas Board of Correction 5:09CV00272HLJ DEFENDANTS PLAINTIFF
and Community Punishment Compliance Division, P.O. Box 20550, Pine Bluff, AR 71612-0550,
without prepayment of fees and costs or security therefore. IT IS SO ORDERED this 29th day of September, 2009.
