IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
DENNIS J. JOHNSON
MJR. CARRY TORBERT
ORDER ON MOTION
Before the court is a pleading filed by Plaintiff captioned as a Motion for Money to
be Reimbursed and Compensable. He complains that “Defendant Lt. Corey Welch,” froze
money in his inmate account in order to cover a work release check that was never reported
or turned in. Plaintiff complains that such action is illegal and requests the return of his
money as well as damages to compensate him for pain and suffering.
A review of the complaint shows that Lt. Welch is not a defendant to this cause of
action. Further, the matter made the subject of the pending motion is unrelated to the
allegations contained in the complaint against the sole defendant in the pending case, i.e.,
Cary Torbert. Thus, the court finds that the instant motion is due to be denied. Plaintiff is
free, however, to file a separate civil action challenging the constitutionality of the conduct
and/or actions he attributes to Lt. Welch.
