IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
May 14, 2012
A. LYNN, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
Plaintiff, a prisoner proceeding pro se, brings this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, challenging a prison disciplinary proceeding. The matter was referred to the court by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to certify whether the appeal is taken in good faith. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3).
Having reviewed the entire file, the court concludes that the appeal is not taken in good faith. For the reasons stated in the court's February 22, 2012, findings and recommendations, plaintiff's claims are barred by the doctrine of collateral estoppel and he otherwise fails to state a claim upon which relief can be granted.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. This appeal is frivolous and not taken in good faith; 1
2. Plaintiff's in forma pauperis status is appropriately revoked; and
3. The Clerk of the Court is directed to serve a copy of this order on the Pro Se Unit at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
