O RDE R N o w before the Court is the Motion for Leave to Proceed in forma pauperis (IFP)by D arre ll Wayne LaPatch. The application to proceed IFP is granted. Pursuant to the provisions of th e Prison Litigation Reform Act the clerk is directed to collect the $350.00 filing fee from the p lain tiff. In the Complaint (Doc. 2), John Michael Overbey is listed as a co-Plaintiff. However, t h e re is no IFP application made by Mr. Overbey, no filing fee paid by Mr. Overbey, and the facts o f the Complaint relate solely to Mr. LaPatch. Accordingly, the Clerk of Court is hereby directed to remove Mr. Overbey as a Plaintiff at this time. Additionally, upon review of the Complaint (Doc. 2) it appears the Complaint should be se rve d upon the Defendants. The Court, having heretofore entered an order allowing the plaintiff to proceed in forma p a u p e r i s and directing the clerk to file the Complaint, hereby directs the United States Marshal to serve the defendants Brandon Reynolds, Rick Perteson, and Jerry Dorty. Defendants may be
se rve d at the Johnson County Sheriff's Department and County Jail, 301 Porter Industrial Road, C larks vi lle , Arkansas, 72830. Defendants are to be served without prepayment of fees and costs or security therefor. The d e fe n d an t s are ordered to answer within twenty-one (21) days from the date of service.
