UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA ORLANDO DIVISION LLOYD KING, Plaintiff, v. STATE OF FLORIDA, Defendant. CASE NO. 6:06-cv-1466-Orl-28KRS
ORDER This case is before the Court on the following matters: 1. Plaintiff, an inmate of the Florida penal system proceeding pro se, filed a document
which has been construed as a civil rights complaint (Doc. No. 1). The complaint is rambling, disjointed, and difficult to decipher. The complaint does not state a claim within the jurisdiction of the federal court. A federal district court must have at least one of three types of subject matter jurisdiction: (1) jurisdiction under a specific statutory grant; (2) federal question jurisdiction pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1331; or (3) diversity jurisdiction pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1332(a). Baltin v. Alaron Trading Corp., 128 F.3d 1466, 1469 (11th Cir. 1997). Because Plaintiff has failed to set forth his claim adequately, he will be required to submit an amended complaint. The amended complaint must (1) include a description of the basis for this Court's jurisdiction over Plaintiff's claims; (2) identify the defendant(s); (3) describe the action or inaction of each defendant; and (4) identify how Plaintiff was harmed. After completing the new form, Plaintiff should mail it to the Court with a copy for each defendant.

Plaintiff is advised that any other documents submitted to the Court for filing that contain any contaminants will not be accepted. The Clerk of the Court is directed not to file any such documents and to return them to Plaintiff. DONE AND ORDERED at Orlando, Florida this 29th day of September, 2006.
