January 2, 2018
PDF | More
Entry Discussing Complaint, Dismissing Insufficient Claims, and Directing Further Proceedings - The plaintiff's motion to proceed in forma pauperis, Dkt. No. 6, is granted. The assessment of even a partial filing fee is not feasible at this time. Plaintiff David Runyon is an inmate at the United States Penitentiary in Terre Haute, Indiana ("USP-TH"). The complaint is now subject to the screening requirement of 28 U.S.C. ยง 1915A(b). Because the Court has been unable to identify a viable claim for relief against any particular defendant, the complaint is subject to dismissal. The dismissal of the complaint will not in this instance lead to the dismissal of the action at present. Instead, the plaintiff shall have through January 26, 2018, in which to file an amended complaint. (See Entry.) Copy to plaintiff via US Mail. Signed by Judge William T. Lawrence on 1/2/2018. (RSF)
