IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
LARRY WAYNE BURKS
Case No. 5:14-cv-00319-KGB/BD
WENDY KELLEY, Director,
Arkansas Department of Correction1; et al.
The Court has reviewed the Recommended Disposition (“Recommendation”) issued by
Magistrate Judge Beth Deere (Dkt. No. 4). Despite the Court granting plaintiff Larry Wayne
Burks’s motion for extension of time to file objections (Dkt. No. 5), no objections have been
filed, and the time for doing so has passed. After careful consideration, the Court finds that the
Recommendation should be, and hereby is, approved and adopted in all respects. Mr. Burks’s
claims are dismissed with prejudice. This dismissal will count as a “strike” for purposes of 28
U.S.C. § 1915(g). In addition, the Court certifies that an in forma pauperis appeal of this
dismissal would be frivolous and not taken in good faith.
SO ORDERED this the 22nd day of April, 2015.
