NANCY J. KOPPE, Magistrate Judge.
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915, the Court screened Plaintiff's complaint on February 17, 2017. Docket No. 3. The Court found that Plaintiff failed to state a claim and failed to allege that she had exhausted her administrative remedies. Docket No. 3.

Accordingly, Plaintiff has stated a claim for FMLA retaliation.
Based on the foregoing and good cause appearing, therefore,
