Bunn v. Norris et al Doc. 7 Case 5:06-cv-00002-SWW Document 7 Filed 01/17/2006 Page 1 of 2 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS PINE BLUFF DIVISION GEORGE ARTHUR BUNN ADC # 112142 V. 5:06CV00002 SWW/HDY PLAINTIFF LARRY NORRIS, Director, Arkansas Department of Correction; JACOB K. KING; BROWN, Lieutenant, Arkansas Department of Correction; CHRIS COODY; DALE REED, Warden, Arkansas Department of Correction; JAMES GIBSON, Hearing Administrator, Arkansas Department of Correction; and JOHN AND JANE DOES 1-3 DEFENDANTS ORDER The Court has reviewed the Proposed Findings and Recommended Disposition submitted by United States Magistrate Judge H. David Young and Plaintiff's objections. After carefully considering Plaintiff's 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: 1. This action is DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE, and dismissal of this action shall counts 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 . . . ." The Eighth Circuit has held that, if a plaintiff fails to exhaust available administrative remedies before initiating an action in federal court, the complaint fails to state a claim upon which relief may be granted.
