ENTRY Screening Complaint, Dismissing Insufficient Claims and Directing Further Proceedings - The plaintiff's motion to proceed in forma pauperis, [dkt. 2], is granted. The assessment of even a partial filing fee is not feasible at this time. The plaintiff's motion to appoint counsel, [dkt. 3], is denied as premature. Any claims against Sheriff Billingsley, Lt. Keating, Cpt. Boley, and Cpt. Nutter are dismissed for failure to state a claim and they are dismissed as defendants from this action. Mr. Easley has also named the Clark County Jail. The Clark County Jail is not a suable entity. It is dismissed as a defendant from this action. 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 August 14, 2017, in which to file an amended complaint with specific facts. In organizing his complaint, the plaintiff may benefit from utilizing the Court's complaint form. The clerk is directed to include a copy of the prisoner civil rights complaint form along with the plaintiff's copy of this Entry. Copy sent to plaintiff via US Mail. Signed by Judge Tanya Walton Pratt on 7/13/2017. (MAT) (Additional attachment(s) added on 7/13/2017: # (1) Complaint Form) (MAT).
