IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS PINE BLUFF DIVISION KAMEON VANKEIS AARON, ADC #129521 v. PLAINTIFF 5:12-cv-00121-DPM-JTK C. ANTHONY, et al. DEFENDANTS ORDER By Order dated April 12, 2012 (Doc. No. 7), this Court granted Plaintiff’s Motion 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 him to submit an Amended Complaint within thirty days. Plaintiff submitted an Amended Complaint against Defendants Anthony, Cashion, and Harris (Doc. No. 10), and a Motion to Dismiss the remaining Defendants, which was granted by Order dated April 27, 2012 (Doc. No. 11). Having reviewed the Amended Complaint, it now appears to the Court that service is appropriate with respect to Plaintiff’s allegation of retaliation against Defendant Anthony. Accordingly, IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that service is appropriate for the Defendant Sgt. C. Anthony. The Clerk of the Court shall prepare summons for the Defendant and the United States Marshal is hereby directed to serve a copy of the Amended Complaint (Doc. No. 10) and summons on this Defendant in care of the Arkansas Board of Correction and Community Punishment Compliance Division, P.O. Box 20550, Pine Bluff, AR 71612-0550, without prepayment of fees and costs or security therefore. 1 IT IS SO ORDERED this 7th day of May, 2012. __________________________________ JEROME T.
