JUDGE COREY B. MOORE, Defendant. ) ) ) ) ) Case No.: 2:18-CV-0458-VEH ) ) ) ) MEMORANDUM OPINION This case was reassigned to the undersigned on May 7, 2018. (Doc. 4). In the Order of Reassignment, the magistrate conducted a frivolity review pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2) and noted that “[a] review of the instant pleading makes it plan that it is legally frivolous and subject to dismissal because the only claims asserted are against a state court judge for actions taken in his capacity as a state court judge.” (Doc. 4 at 3). The Court agrees with this observation, and ADOPTS the magistrate’s order as the opinion of this Court. Further, the Court EXPRESSLY HOLDS that the Plaintiff’s claims are frivolous because the Defendant has absolute judicial immunity for the claims against him. Accordingly, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1915(e)(2)(B)(i), this matter is due to be DISMISSED with prejudice. A Final Order will be entered. DONE and ORDERED this 10th day of May, 2018. VIRGINIA EMERSON HOPKINS United States District Judge 2
