IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
LATARRIS KEITH ROBINSON
NO. 5:12CV00109 JLH/BD
CORDERRO R. DAVIS, et al.
Magistrate Judge Beth Deere has filed a Partial Recommended Disposition in which she
recommends that the claims of Latarris Keith Robinson against defendants Banks and May be
dismissed without prejudice because the complaint fails to allege that either of them personally
participated in the acts of alleged excessive force, and the complaint is insufficient to allege that either
of them was deliberately indifferent to a constitutional violation. Robinson has filed objections in
which he contends that Jimmy Banks was present at the time of the alleged excessive force and
participated in that conduct. He does not, however, contend that Larry May was present or that May
personally participated in the unlawful conduct. The Partial Recommended Disposition is therefore
adopted with respect to Larry May. The claims of Latarris Keith Robinson against Larry May are
dismissed without prejudice. As to the claims of Robinson against Jimmy Banks, Robinson must
submit an amended complaint within thirty (30) days from the entry of this Order, alleging specifically
the actions that he contends Jimmy Banks engaged in that makes him personally liable. Failure to
submit an amended complaint making those allegations specifically may result in Jimmy Banks being
dismissed as a defendant from this action. This action is again referred to Magistrate Judge Deere
for further proceedings.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 21st day of May, 2012.
