UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF KENTUCKY
TARRIKE T. RAMIREZ
CIVIL ACTION NO. 3:17CV-P133-TBR
SOUTHERN HEALTH PARTNERS
Plaintiff Tarrike T. Ramirez, a convicted inmate incarcerated in the Hardin County
Detention Center (HCDC), filed a pro se complaint pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 against
Southern Health Partners (SHP). By Memorandum Opinion and Order entered September 29,
2017 (DN 8), the Court conducted an initial review of the complaint pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
§ 1915A and dismissed the claims against the sole Defendant, SHP, pursuant to § 1915A(b)(1)
for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted. Before dismissing the entire action,
however, the Court provided Plaintiff with an opportunity to file an amended complaint to name
as Defendants any officers/employees/medical staff allegedly involved in Plaintiff’s claims of
denied medical treatment at HCDC, to sue them in their individual capacity, and to describe what
each Defendant allegedly did to violate his rights. See LaFountain v. Harry, 716 F.3d 944, 951
(6th Cir. 2013) (“[U]nder Rule 15(a) a district court can allow a plaintiff to amend his complaint
even when the complaint is subject to dismissal under the PLRA [Prison Litigation Reform
Act].”). The Court advised Plaintiff that his failure to file an amended complaint within 30 days
from entry of the Memorandum Opinion and Order would result in the entry of a final Order
dismissing the entire action for the reasons stated therein.
The 30-day period has expired, and the record reflects that Plaintiff has not filed an
amended complaint. Therefore, the Court will enter a separate Order dismissing this action.
