DON COOK, ADC # 135485, Plaintiff,
MOORE, Correctional Officer, Varner Unit et al., Defendants.
BRIAN S. MILLER, Chief District Judge.
The proposed findings and partial recommended disposition ("PRD") submitted by United States Magistrate Judge Joe J. Volpe and plaintiff's objections thereto have been reviewed. Plaintiff has also now retained counsel and filed an unopposed motion for leave to file a second amended complaint. After careful consideration of all the documents in the record, it is concluded that the PRD should be approved in part and rejected in part. The PRD is rejected as to the dismissal of defendants Kennie Bolden, Jeremy Andrew, Lasaundra Malone, Moses Jackson, and Sharron Williams. The remaining portion of the PRD is adopted in its entirety.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that:
1 Defendants Keith Burnett, Malcolm Crompton, A. Thomas, Iko, Peyton, Gray,
M. Culclager, D. Lewis, Stephens, Shirley Hudson, F. Washington, R. Hutcheson, G. Lay, W. Kelly, Grant Harris, Ray Hobbs, and Brown are dismissed without prejudice.
2 Plaintiff's motion to file a second amended complaint to clarify specific claims against each remaining defendant [Doc. No. 24] is granted.
3 It is certified that an in forma pauperis appeal from this order would not be taken in good faith.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
