Entry Screening Complaint, and Directing Further Proceedings - 9 Motion to Withdraw is granted. The clerk is directed to remove Angelito C. Mercado as a plaintiff in this action. Riddle's gender-based equal protection policy and practice claim against Sheriff Matt Myers shall proceed. The identical claim against Bartholomew County is dismissed because the plaintiff does not allege any facts to support the conclusion that Bartholomew County participated in the Sheriff's policy decision. Riddle's claims against all other defendants are dismissed because he did not allege sufficient facts to support a claim that they each personally participated in the alleged discrimination. As for Riddle's second claim related to the disciplinary process, to the extent that he alleges he was denied due process in his attempts to grieve or otherwise pursue his administrative remedies, this claim is also denied. Riddle's equal protection policy and practice claim against Sheriff Matt Myers, based upon the alleged disparity of punishment between male and female inmates in the Bartholomew County Jail shall proceed. This summary of remaining claims includes all of the viable claims identified by the Court. All other claims have been dismissed. If the plaintiff believes that additional claims were alleged in the complaint, but not identified by the Court he shall have through December 29, 2017, in which to identify those claims. The clerk is directed to remove all other defendants from the docket. The clerk is designated pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(c)(3) to issue process to defendants Sheriff Matt Myers and Bartholomew County in the manner specified by Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(d). Process shall consist of the complaint (docket 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 for details. Signed by Judge Tanya Walton Pratt on 11/29/2017. (Copy mailed to Christopher Riddle and Sheriff Matt Myers) (MEJ)
