Goodman v. Hobbs et al
ORDER directing the U.S. Marshal to serve summons, complaint and this Order on defts without prepayment of fees and costs. Signed by Magistrate Judge H. David Young on 5/16/12. (vjt)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
JONATHAN ELLIOTT GOODMAN
NO: 5:12CV00157 BSM/HDY
RAY HOBBS et al.
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
