KAYMANI D. WEST, Magistrate Judge.
Plaintiff, proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis, brought this action alleging violations of his constitutional rights pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On August 14, 2014, Defendants William R. Byars, Jr.; Corporal Marvin Bryant; Officer Derrick Ford; Lt. Richard Jenkins, SMU; Warden John R. Pate; Ann Hallman, Chief Grievance; Major Walter Worrick; IGC Ms. Pam Smith; Officer Frazier; A/W Randell Williams; Sgt. Rivers Smith; C/O Mr. Felder; Officer Mr. Davis; Officer Ms. Drayton; Lt.
