IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS PINE BLUFF DIVISION JONATHAN ELLIOTT GOODMAN ADC #141664 V. PLAINTIFF NO: 5:12CV00157 BSM/HDY RAY HOBBS et al. DEFENDANTS ORDER Plaintiff, currently held at Arkansas Department of Correction’s Tucker Maximum Security Unit, filed a pro se complaint (docket entry #2), on April 27, 2012. In response to a Court order, Plaintiff has now filed a signed copy of the signature page of his complaint (docket entry #8). Construing Plaintiff’s complaint liberally, the Court concludes that, for screening purposes, Plaintiff states a cognizable claim for relief under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 against Defendants, and will therefore order service upon them. IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED THAT service is appropriate on Defendants, and the United States Marshal is directed to serve a copy of the complaint (docket entry #2), this order, and summons, upon them, without prepayment of fees and costs or security therefor. DATED this 16 day of May, 2012. UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
