IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that because plaintiff currently has a negative account balance, the Court will instruct the Missouri Department of Corrections, the agency having custody of plaintiff, to begin making payments in accordance with 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b)(2) until the $350 filing fee is paid in full. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that plaintiff's motion to amend his complaint to add a party [Doc. #5] is GRANTED. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk shall issue process or cause process to issue upon the complaint as to defendants Dallas Jones and Jeffrey Carson in their individual capacities.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk shall not issue process or cause process to issue upon the complaint as to defendants Dallas Jones or Jeffrey Carsons in their official capacities, or against the City of St. Louis Department of Public Safety, because, as to these defendants or claims, the complaint is legally frivolous or fails to state a claim upon which relief can be granted, or both. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that plaintiff's motion to compel discovery [Doc. #7] is DENIED at this time. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that plaintiff's motion for appointment of counsel [Doc. #6] is DENIED at this time. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that this case is assigned to Track 5: Prisoner Standard.
