ADAMS, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
ORDER GRANTING PLAINTIFF'S MOTION FOR CLARIFICATION and AMENDING CAPTION OF ORDER ADOPTING FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATION RE DEFENDANTS' MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT (Docs. 115, 120)
Plaintiff Monte Haney ("Plaintiff") is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Plaintiff filed this action on July 5, 2007 and is proceeding on the First Amended Complaint filed on July 16, 2008.

The caption in that order adopting reflected the case name as "Monte Haney v. Richard E. Early, et al.." (Id.) The is the first and only instance that the name "Richard E. Early" has been on any order or pleading in this matter. On December 12, 2012, Plaintiff filed an ex parte motion inquiring whether, Richard E. Early was a new defendant in the case, whether Derral G. Adams was still a defendant, or if some form of mistake had occurred. (Doc. 120.)

Accordingly, Plaintiff's ex parte motion for clarification, filed December 12, 2012 (Doc. 120), is hereby GRANTED and the caption of the order adopting the findings and recommendation on Defendants' motion for summary judgment (Doc. 115) is amended to reflect the case name of "Monte Haney v. Adams, et al."
