Volpe and the objections of the parties. After carefully considering the objections and making a de novo review of the record in this case, the court concludes that the proposed findings and recommended disposition should be, and hereby are, approved and adopted in their entirety as this court's findings in all respects. IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that this action is DISMISSED with prejudice, and dismissal of this action shall count as a "strike" for purposes of 28 U.S.C. 1915(g).1 Title 28 U.S.C. 1915(g) provides that: "In no event shall a prisoner bring a civil action or appeal a judgment in a civil action under this section if the prisoner has, on 3 or more prior occasions, while incarcerated or detained in any facility, brought an action or appeal in a court of the United States that was dismissed on the grounds that it is frivolous, malicious, or fails to state a claim upon which relief may be granted . . . ." 1 The court FURTHER CERTIFIES, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1915(a)(3), that an in forma pauperis appeal from this order and judgment would not be taken in good faith. DATED this 9th day of October, 2009. UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 2
