IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
ROBERT TWYMAN, JR., #147435,
KIM TOBIAS THOMAS, et al.,
CIVIL ACTION NO. 2:14-CV-10-TMH
ORDER ON MOTION
Upon consideration of the motion to amend the complaint filed by the plaintiff on
March 13, 2014 (Doc. No. 8), in which he seeks to the Alabama Board of Pardons and
Paroles and its members as defendants, and as this case was previously dismissed for the
plaintiff's failure to pay the $350 filing fee upon initiation of the case as required by the
provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g), it is
ORDERED that the motion to amend be and is hereby DENIED.1
Done this 14th day of March, 2014.
/s/ Charles S. Coody
CHARLES S. COODY
UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
The court also advised Twyman that his claims did not appear to entitle him to relief as state law governs credit
allowed on a sentence for time served on parole and such law forbade him credit from the 1998 declaration of
delinquency by the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles until his rearrest as a delinquent parolee in March of 2004.
Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge - Doc. No. 3 at 2, n.2. The court further advised Twyman that "even were he
to submit the requisite filing fee, well established law would prohibit this court from considering challenges to the
duration of his confinement in this 42 U.S.C. § 1983 [action] as habeas corpus is the exclusive remedy for such claims."
Id. at 4, n.4.
