ENTRY - Plaintiff Richard Ramsey's renewed motion to proceed in forma pauperis, dkt. 6, is granted. He is assessed an initial partial filing fee of Fourteen Dollars and Thirty Eight Cents ($14.38). He shall have through June 16, 2017, to pay this sum to the clerk. First, Superintendent Keith Butts is dismissed as a defendant. The clerk is directed to terminate Keith Butts from the docket. The clerk is directed to terminate defendants GEO Group and Corizon on the docket. Any claim asserted pursuant to the Fifth Amendment is dismissed because only state action, not action by the federal government, is alleged here. Finally, the plaintiff has adequately alleged that defendants Dr. Bruce Ippel, Nurse Mullins, and Nurse Dillow were deliberately indifferent to a serious medical need in violation of the Eighth Amendment. This claim may proceed. The clerk is designated pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(c)(3) to issue process to defendants Dr. Bruce Ippel, Nurse Gay Mullins, and Nurse Amber Dillow in the manner specified by Rule 4(d). Process shall consist of the complaint filed on April 25, 2017, [dkt. 1], applicable forms (Notice of Lawsuit and Request for Waiver of Service of Summons and Waiver of Service of Summons), and this Entry. (See Entry.) Copies mailed per distribution list. Signed by Judge Tanya Walton Pratt on 5/17/2017.(JLS)
