GERALD NEAL BABINEAUX,
DISTRICT ATTORNEY 27TH JUDICIAL DISTRICT COURT; EARL B.
Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Western District of Louisiana
USDC No. 2:15-CV-1792
Before DAVIS, SOUTHWICK, and HIGGINSON, Circuit Judges.
PER CURIAM: *
Gerald Neal Babineaux, Louisiana prisoner # 222961, appeals the
dismissal of his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 complaint pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
§ 1915(e)(2)(B)(i) and (ii), as frivolous and for failure to state a claim on which
relief could be granted.
The district court did not err in dismissing the
complaint, as Babineaux’s claim that he has been denied access to the courts
Pursuant to 5TH CIR. R. 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not
be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5TH
CIR. R. 47.5.4.
Date Filed: 02/03/2017
lacked an arguable basis in law or contained insufficient factual matter to state
a plausible claim for relief. See Ashcroft v. Iqbal, 556 U.S. 662, 678–79 (2009);
Samford v. Dretke, 562 F.3d 674, 678 (5th Cir. 2009).
judgment is AFFIRMED.
Babineaux’s motions relative to discovery are
The dismissal of Babineaux’s Section 1983 complaint as frivolous and for
failure to state a claim on which relief may be granted counts as a strike under
Section 1915(g). See § 1915(g); Coleman v. Tollefson, 135 S. Ct. 1759, 1763–64
(2015); Adepegba v. Hammons, 103 F.3d 383, 387–88 (5th Cir. 1996).
Babineaux is WARNED that if he accumulates three strikes, he will not be
allowed to proceed in forma pauperis in any civil action or appeal filed while
he is incarcerated or detained in any facility unless he is under imminent
danger of serious physical injury. See § 1915(g).
