United States District Court, D. New Jersey
ROBERT B. KUGLER, District Judge.
Plaintiff is incarcerated at the Camden County Correctional Facility in Camden, New Jersey. He is proceeding pro se with a civil rights complaint filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Previously, the Court administratively terminated this action as plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis was incomplete. Plaintiff has now filed a new application to proceed in forma pauperis. Accordingly, the Clerk will be ordered to reopen this case. Plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis will be granted based on the information provided therein.

The "Prosecutor's Office" is purportedly is liable for violating the "RPC."
In a letter received by the Court after plaintiff submitted his complaint ( see Dkt. No. 4.), he also seeks to add to his complaint issues against defendant Christopher Cunningham and Christopher Fosler. Cunningham allegedly works in the mental health department at the Camden County Correctional Facility. Cunningham purportedly used duress to make plaintiff take medication as well as prevented him from seeing a psychiatrist on June 19, 2013.
Defendant Fosler is a commanding officer at the Camden County Correctional Facility. He purportedly violated plaintiff's rights by preventing him from receiving mental medical treatment as well as denied him access to the law library.
