Entry Dismissing Insufficient Claims and Directing Further Proceedings - Because the plaintiff is a "prisoner" as defined by 28 U.S.C. § 1915(h), a pretrial detainee at the Vigo County Jail, this Court has an obligation under 28 U.S.C. § 1915A to screen his complaint and must dismiss the complaint if it is frivolous or malicious, fails to state a claim for relief, or seeks monetary relief against a defendant who is immune from such relief. The clerk is designated pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(c)(3) to issue process to defendants Nurse Diane and Dr. Emerson in the manner specified by Rule 4(d). No partial final judgment shall issue at this time as to the claims resolved in Section II of this Entry. The clerk is instructed to update the docket to reflect the dismissal of Sheriff Greg Ewing, the Vigo County Commissioners, Quality Correctional Care, and Vigo County from this action. (See Entry.) Copies mailed pursuant to distribution list. Signed by Judge William T. Lawrence on 11/17/2016.(RSF)
