Lyle W. Cayce
R. MOORE, Senior Warden; D. LOFTON, Assistant Warden,
Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Northern District of Texas
USDC No. 3:16-CV-987
Before JOLLY, DAVIS, and SOUTHWICK, Circuit Judges.
PER CURIAM: *
Eric Flores, Texas prisoner # 2051801, moves this court for authorization
to proceed in forma pauperis (IFP) following the district court’s dismissal of his
42 U.S.C. § 1983 complaint. As Flores has raised only fanciful allegations,
including claims that he has already been executed and that the defendants
have used technology from outer space to harm him and his family, he has
failed to show that he should be allowed to proceed IFP on appeal under 28
U.S.C. § 1915(g) or that his appeal of the district court’s judgment presents a

be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5TH
CIR. R. 47.5.4.

nonfrivolous issue. See Banos v. O’Guin, 144 F.3d 883, 885 (5th Cir. 1998);
Carson v. Polley, 689 F.2d 562, 586 (5th Cir. 1982). Flores’s motion for leave
to proceed IFP is denied.
The facts surrounding the IFP decision are inextricably intertwined with
the merits of the appeal. See Baugh v. Taylor, 117 F.3d 197, 202 & n.24 (5th
Cir. 1997). The appeal presents no nonfrivolous issues and is dismissed as
frivolous. See 5TH CIR. R. 42.2. Flores is WARNED that any future frivolous,
repetitive, or otherwise abusive filings will subject him to additional and
progressively more severe sanctions.
Flores is DIRECTED to review all
pending matters and move to dismiss any that are frivolous, repetitive, or
