Eddie Scott, Jr., an Arkansas Department of Correction inmate formerly housed at the Pulaski County Detention Center, filed this lawsuit pro se under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. (Docket entry #2) Based on the allegations in his complaint and amended complaint, Mr. Scott has stated a failure-to-protect claim against Defendant Allen; a retaliation claim against Defendants Parson, Smith, Shepard, and Morgan; and a deliberate-indifference claim against Defendants Allen, Hooker, Hunter, Parson, Smith, Shepard, Morgan, and Allison.
The Court previously dismissed several of Mr. Scott's claims: Defendants' failure to process his grievances; the Defendants' interference with his access to the courts; and the Defendants' failure to conduct an internal investigation. (#20) In addition, Mr. Scott's claims against the Defendants in their official capacities were dismissed, as well as his claims against Defendants Tally, Newburn, Eckman, Jenkins, Brawley, Warner, and Best were dismissed. (#20)
Mr. Scott named Lieutenant Long as a Defendant in his amended complaint, but he has not described any unconstitutional conduct committed by this Defendant. For that reason, the Court recommends that Mr. Scott's claims against Defendant Long be dismissed without prejudice.
