TERESA DIEBOLD; and
On November 30, 2006, the plaintiff, who is proceeding pro se, filed this civil rights

Pursuant to the provisions of the Prison Litigation Reform Act, the clerk is directed to collect the

directed to place pages 3, and 5 through 10 of the supplement under seal so that these pages
will not be available for public viewing.
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915A the court has the obligation to screen any complaint in which
a prisoner seeks redress from a governmental entity or officer or employee of a governmental entity.
