For a more complete statement of Plaintiff's claims, reference is made to the entire Complaint.
WHEREFORE, it is hereby
ORDERED, that the Clerk shall issue Summonses and forward them to Plaintiff. It is the responsibility of Plaintiff to immediately serve the Defendants with the Summons and a copy of his Complaint in accordance with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. The Clerk shall forward a copy of the Summons and Complaint by mail to the Office of the Attorney General for the State of New York, together with a copy of this Order; and it is further
