Flores v. United States Attorney General et al
ORDER denying 1 MOTION for Leave to Proceed in forma pauperis filed by Eric Flores. The plaintiff's action is dismissed without prejudice. The clerk's office is directed to file the plaintiff's complaint for the purpose of making record. Signed by Judge Mark W Bennett on 4/28/15. (copy w/nef mailed to plaintiff) (djs)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF IOWA
UNITED STATES ATTORNEY
GENERAL, FEDERAL BUREAU OF
This matter is before the court on the plaintiff’s application to proceed in forma
pauperis. The plaintiff submitted such application on April 16, 2015. Along with his
application to proceed in forma pauperis, the plaintiff submitted a complaint and several
other documents. There is no doubt that 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g), commonly referred to as
the “three strikes” provision, denies the plaintiff the advantages of proceeding in forma
pauperis. See, e.g., Flores v. Holder, 132 S. Ct. 2397 (2012); Flores v. United State AG,
434 F. App’x 387 (5th Cir. 2011); Flores v. El Paso Police Dep’t, 2011 U.S. Dist. LEXIS
98111 (W.D. Tex. 2011). Accordingly, the plaintiff’s application to proceed in forma
pauperis shall be denied, and this action shall be dismissed without prejudice. The clerk’s
office shall file the complaint for the purpose of making a record.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED:
1) The plaintiff’s application to proceed in forma pauperis (docket no. 1) is denied.
2) The plaintiff’s action is dismissed without prejudice.
3) The clerk’s office is directed to file the plaintiff’s complaint for the purpose of
making a record.
DATED this 28th day of April, 2015.
