The Magistrate Judge's March 23, 2006 Report and Recommendation ("R&R") (Doc. 3) is APPROVED AND ADOPTED insofar as it recommends dismissal on the basis of Abella v. Rubino, 63 F.3d 1063 (11th Cir. 1995). The Court need not reach the other grounds for dismissal set forth in the R&R. 2. Plaintiff's Objection (Doc. 4) to the R&R, filed on March 28, 2006, is OVERRULED. Although Plaintiff's complaint seeks declaratory relief, rather than money damages, declaratory relief claims which challenge the validity of the claimant's conviction are not cognizable under 42 U.S.C. 1983. Abella, 63 F.3d at 1066. 3. Plaintiff's Motion for Leave to Proceed In Forma Pauperis (Doc. 2), filed on March 21, 2006, is DENIED. 4. This action is DISMISSED as frivolous.
