Norman Adams is an inmate confined at the White County
Detention Facility (Jail), who filed this pro se 42
U.S.C. § 1983 action against Defendants, alleging
improper conditions of confinement. By Order dated November
29, 2016 (Doc. No. 4), this Court granted Plaintiff's
Motion to Proceed in forma pauperis in this lawsuit.
However, finding Plaintiff's complaint too vague and
conclusory to enable the Court to determine whether it was
frivolous, malicious, or failed to state a claim, the Court
provided Plaintiff the opportunity to amend his complaint
within thirty days. (Id., p. 3) As of this date,
Plaintiff has not filed an Amended Complaint.
reviewed Plaintiff's Complaint, the Court finds it should
be dismissed, for failure to state a claim upon which relief
may be granted.
