IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
KAMEON VANKEIS AARON
NO: 5:12CV00179 DPM/HDY
LOY HICKS et al.
Plaintiff filed a complaint on May 21, 2012, totaling 87 pages, including attachments. Now
pending are Defendants’ motions to dismiss, or for a more definite statement (docket entries #25 &
#28). As Defendants note, Plaintiff’s complaint includes numerous documents which were filed in
a previous lawsuit, making it difficult to tell the specific claims he is raising in this lawsuit.
The Court will construe the motions as motions for a more definite statement. The motions
(docket entries #25 & #28) are GRANTED. Plaintiff is directed to file an amended complaint
setting forth a short statement of his claims against each Defendant. The amended complaint should
contain no documents from other cases, or grievance documents, but should briefly describe how
each Defendant violated his rights. Plaintiff’s failure to file the amended complaint within 30 days
will result in the recommended dismissal of his complaint.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 31
day of July, 2012.
