ORDER that Plaintiff's Motion for Leave to Proceed IFP (Filing No. 2) is granted. Plaintiff must pay an initial partial filing fee of $7.18 within 30 days, unless the court extends the time in which he has to pay in response to a written motion. After payment of the initial partial filing fee, Plaintiff's institution must collect the additional monthly payments in the manner set forth in 28 U.S.C.§ 1915(b)(2), quoted above, and forward those payments to the court. The clerk's office is directed to send a copy of this order to the appropriate official at Plaintiff's institution. The clerk's office is directed to set a pro se case management deadline in this case using the following text: May 27, 2016: initial partial filing fee payment due. Plaintiff is advised that, following payment of the initial partial filing fee, the next step in Plaintiff's case will be for the court to conduct an initial review of Plaintiff's claims to determine whether summary dismissal is appropriate under 28 U.S.C.§ 1915(e)(2). The court will conduct this initial review in its normal course of business. Ordered by Senior Judge Richard G. Kopf. (Copies mailed as directed) (LAC)

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER This action may proceed to service of process as to Plaintiff's claims against defendants Frakes, Kohl, Lewein, Wees, Small, Schmoker, Ogden, Antley, and Wesley in their individual capacities, in addition to those as-yet unidentified members of the OCC medical staff (also in their individual capacities) that had direct involvement in Plaintiff's post-surgery treatment. Defendants Nebraska Department of Correctional Services and Omaha Correctional Center are dismissed from this action, as are Plaintiff's official-capacity claims against defendants Frakes, Kohl, Lewein, Wees, Small, Schmoker, Ogden, Antley, and Wesley. The clerk of the court is directed to send to Plaintiff a copy of the Complaint, a copy of this Memorandum and Order, and 9 summons forms and 9 USM 285 Forms for service on defendants Frakes, Kohl, Lewein, Wees, Small, Schmoker, Ogden, Antley, and Wesley in their individual capacities. (See attached Notice Regarding Service.) Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(m) requires service of the complaint on a defendant within 120 days of filing the complaint. However, Plaintiff is granted, on the court's own motion, an extension of time until 120 days from the date of this order to complete service of process. If requested to do so in this matter, the United States Marshal will serve all process in this case without prepayment of fees from Plaintiff. In making such a request, Plaintiff must complete the USM 285 forms and submit them to the clerk of the court, together with the completed summons forms. Without these documents, the United States Marshal will not serve process. Upon receipt of the completed forms, the clerk of the court will sign the summons forms and forward them to the Marshal for service on Defendants, together with copies of the Complaint. In the event Plaintiff asks the United States Marshal to serve process, the clerk of the court will make copies of the Complaint for service on Defendants. The clerk of the court is directed to set the following pro se case management deadline: November 28, 2016: check for completion of service. Ordered by Senior Judge Richard G. Kopf.
