LEE COUNTY TUPELO ADULT JAIL, ET AL.
ORDER REQUIRING PLAINTIFF TO NAME
VALID DEFENDANT WITHIN 21 DAYS
The plaintiff in this case has named only the “Lee Co Tupelo Adult Jail” and “Medical Dept”
as defendants in this case; however, neither of these entities is a proper defendant in a case proceeding
under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. As such, the plaintiff must name at least one valid defendant and explain
how that defendant participated in the events giving rise to this suit. The deadline for identifying a
valid defendant to the court is 21 days from the date of this order. Failure to comply with this order
will result in the dismissal of this case without prejudice under Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b) for failure to
prosecute and failure to comply with an order of the court.
SO ORDERED, this, the 15th day of July, 2021.
