IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
January 7, 2011
TAHEE ABD RASHEED, PLAINTIFF,
J WALKER, ET AL. DEFENDANTS.
Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding without counsel in an action brought under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. This proceeding was referred by Local Rule 302 pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and is before the undersigned pursuant to plaintiff's consent. See E.D. Cal. Local Rules, Appx. A, at (k)(4).
28 U.S.C. § 1915(g) provides that "[i]n no event shall a prisoner bring a civil action . . . under this section if the prisoner has, on 3 or more prior occasions, while incarcerated or detained in any facility, brought an action or appeal in a court of the United States that was dismissed on the grounds that it is frivolous, malicious, or fails to state a claim upon which relief may be granted, unless the prisoner is under imminent danger of serious physical injury." ////
Plaintiff has had three or more actions dismissed as frivolous, as malicious, or for failing to state a claim upon which relief may be granted.*fn1
Plaintiff does not claim that he is under imminent danger of serious physical injury, and therefore he may not proceed in forma pauperis in this action. Andrews v. Cervantes, 493 F.3d 1047, 1053 (9th Cir. 2007). Plaintiff has thirty days to pay the $350.00 filing fee in full or this action will be dismissed.
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that:
1. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g), plaintiff is ineligible to proceed in forma pauperis in this action; and
2. Within 30 days of the date of this order, plaintiff shall pay the $350.00 filing fee in full or this action will be dismissed without prejudice.
