The Court has reviewed this case and, being well and sufficiently advised, finds as follows:

ENTIRETY. Accordingly, for the reasons stated in the Magistrate’s report and recommendation,
Defendants’ motions to dismiss (Docs. 16 and 28) are GRANTED IN PART AND DENIED IN
PART. The motions are granted insofar as all claims against Defendants in their official capacities
are DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE for failure to state a claim. The motions are denied in
regard to Plaintiff’s claims against Defendants in their individual capacities.
The Clerk is directed to send Plaintiff a form complaint. Plaintiff is directed to file an
amended complaint, using the form, by no later than Friday, March 21, 2014. In amending his
complaint, Plaintiff is directed to identify or describe any action or inaction by each specific

Failure of Plaintiff to timely file a properly amended complaint may result in dismissal of his
action for failure to follow a court order and/or for failure to state a claim.
