JOHN DOLBY A/K/A MELVIN GRADY, PLAINTIFF,
DR. TAN, D. LA GRAVES, JAMES BERBARY AND THOMAS EAGEN, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Michael A. Telesca United States District Judge
Plaintiff has requested permission to proceed in forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a). He has supplemented his application and has met the statutory requirements. Accordingly, plaintiff's request to proceed as a poor person is hereby granted. In addition, plaintiff's complaint has been reviewed by the Court with respect to the 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2) criteria. Plaintiff has alleged denial of adequate medical care in violation of the Eighth Amendment and retaliation following his attempts to resolve the issue through grievances. His allegations are sufficient to go forward at this time.
The Clerk of the Court is directed to file plaintiff's papers, and to cause the United States Marshal to serve copies of the Summons, Complaint, and this Order upon the named defendants without plaintiff's payment therefor, unpaid fees to be recoverable if this action terminates by monetary award in plaintiff's favor.
Pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1997e(g)(2), the defendants are directed to answer the complaint.
