IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA PENSACOLA DIVISION
KELVIN FRAZIER, Plaintiff, vs. WALTER McNEIL et al. Defendants. 3:09cv367/RV/MD
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION Plaintiff in this cause has filed a pleading entitled "Administrative Complaint" with a caption indicating that it was to be filed in the Florida Department of Corrections. Although plaintiff complains of the conditions of his confinement within the prison system, which under some circumstances could give rise to a claim under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, clearly the document was filed with this court in error. No in forma pauperis application was filed, and the jurisdictional statement on the first page cites § 112.533(1), Florida Statutes. Additionally, court records reflect that plaintiff has filed enough other federal cases that he would surely be aware of procedural requirements including the use of the proper civil rights form for § 1983 cases. (See Case 3:03cv8/RH/MCR and cases cited therein; 3:06cv347/LAC/EMT; 3:07cv273/LAC/MD, 3:08cv398/LAC/MD). Accordingly, it is respectfully RECOMMENDED: That this cause be dismissed without prejudice so that plaintiff may pursue it in the proper forum.
