Scott v. Watson et al
ORDER that Plaintiff shall provide a single address at which he believes service for Defendant Davenport is most likely to succeed within 14 days of this order's entry. Signed by Magistrate Judge Joe J. Volpe on 10/5/2015. (lej)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
DEVERICK SCOTT, ADC #131042
RANDY WATSON, Warden,
Varner Unit; et al.
After two unsuccessful service attempts (Doc. Nos. 10, 16), I ordered Plaintiff to provide a
viable address for Defendant Michael Davenport. (Doc. No. 17.) In response, on October 1, 2015,
Plaintiff filed a Notice and offered four possible addresses for Mr. Davenport. (Doc. No. 22.) He
states this is “as close as [he] can get.” (Id. at 1.) While I commend Plaintiff for his diligence in
obtaining these addresses, I am unwilling to attempt service at four addresses in the hopes of finding
Defendant Davenport.1 See Fed. R. Civ. P. 4. Plaintiff must identify what he believes to be the
address of Defendant Davenport.
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that Plaintiff shall provide a single address at which he
believes service for Defendant Davenport is most likely to succeed. He should notify the Court of
this address within fourteen (14) days of this Order’s entry.
DATED this 5th day of October, 2015.
JOE J. VOLPE
UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
It is unlikely that each of these addresses refers to the same Michael Davenport Plaintiff
named in his Complaint. Two are in Pine Bluff, Arkansas and two are in White Hall, Arkansas.
(Doc. No. 22 at 2.)
