IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 30, 2012
ALEXIOS ALEXANDER, PLAINTIFF,
CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS AND REHABILITATION, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
Court of Appeals No. 12-17397
This matter has been referred to this court by the Court of Appeals for the limited purpose of determining whether in forma pauperis status should continue for appeal. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3). For the reasons explained in detail in the Magistrate Judge's Findings and Recommendations, filed August 13, 2012, this court finds plaintiff's appeal is frivolous. Therefore plaintiff's forma pauperis status will be revoked on appeal. See Hooker v. American Airlines, 302 F. 3d 1091, 1092 (9th Cir. 2002).
On October 15, 2012, plaintiff has also filed a Motion for Certificate of Appealability. This is a civil action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, not a habeas corpus proceeding. Accordingly, the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 2253, dealing with certificates of appealability, are inapplicable.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that plaintiff's forma pauperis status be REVOKED on appeal;
AND IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that plaintiff's motion for a certificate of appealability be, and the same hereby is, DENIED.
The Clerk of this Court is hereby ordered to forthwith transmit a copy of this Order to the Clerk of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
