IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 2, 2012
WILLIE WEAVER, PLAINTIFF,
RIO COSUMNES CORRECTIONAL CENTER, DEFENDANT.
Plaintiff, a county jail inmate proceeding pro se, has filed a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 together with a motion to proceed in forma pauperis. See 28 U.S.C. §§ 1914(a) & 1915(a).*fn1
Review of court records reveals that on at least three occasions lawsuits filed by the plaintiff have been dismissed on the grounds that they were frivolous or malicious or failed to state a claim upon which relief may be granted. See Orders filed July 17, 2006 (Doc. No. 6), in Weaver v. California Correctional Institution Confinement SHU, No. 1:06-cv-00671-OWWSMS-P and, Weaver v. California Correctional Institution--Third Watch Lieutenant, No. 1:06-cv- 00775-OWW-LJO -P (Doc. No. 4), and Order filed August 1, 2006 (Doc. No. 4) in Weaver v. California Correctional Institution Law Library, No. 1:06-cv-00863-OWW-SMS-P.*fn2 Plaintiff is therefore precluded from proceeding in forma pauperis in this action unless he is "under imminent danger of serious physical injury." 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g). Plaintiff has not alleged any facts in his complaint which suggest that he is under imminent danger of serious physical injury. Plaintiff must therefore submit the appropriate filing fee in order to proceed with this action.
In accordance with the above, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that: 1. Plaintiff's February 21, 2012 motion to proceed in forma pauperis (Doc. No. 5) is denied.
2. Plaintiff shall submit, within twenty days from the date of this order, the appropriate filing fee. Plaintiff's failure to comply with this order will result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed.
