IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF KANSAS
CHRISTOPHER COTY MAIER,
CASE NO. 19-3197-SAC
STATE OF KANSAS, et al.,
Plaintiff, Christopher Coty Maier, is a state prisoner housed at Lansing Correctional
Facility in Lansing, Kansas. Plaintiff brings this civil rights case against the State of Kansas; the
Kansas Department of Corrections; (fnu) (lnu) Enforcement Apprehension Investigator; the
Federal Bureau of Investigations; Eric Jackson, FBI; and Deborah Loom, FBI.
Plaintiff is subject to the “three-strikes” provision under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g). Court
records fully establish that Plaintiff “has, on 3 or more prior occasions, while incarcerated . . . ,
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.”1
Accordingly, he may proceed in forma pauperis only if he establishes a threat of imminent
danger of serious physical injury. Id. The Court has examined the Complaint, which is largely
incomprehensible and appears to be legally frivolous, and finds no showing of imminent danger
of serious physical injury.
Prior to filing the instant complaint on October 2, 2019, the court finds at least three prior civil actions filed by
Plaintiff which qualify as “strikes” under § 1915(g). See Maier v. Kansas, Case No. 17-3221 (Doc. 6); Maier v.
Kansas, Case No. 17-3092 (Doc. 3); Maier v. United States, Case No. 17-3085 (Doc. 7); Maier v. Pokorny, Case
No. 16-3235 (Doc. 12); Maier v. Kansas, Case No. 16-3219 (Doc. 31).
Accordingly, pursuant to § 1915(g) Plaintiff may not proceed in forma pauperis in this
civil action. Plaintiff is given time to pay the full $400.00 district court filing fee2 to the Court.
If he fails to pay the full fee within the prescribed time, the Complaint will be dismissed based
upon Plaintiff’s failure to satisfy the statutory district court filing fee required by 28 U.S.C.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED BY THE COURT that Plaintiff is granted until
November 1, 2019, to submit the $400.00 filing fee. The failure to submit the fee by that date
will result in the dismissal of this matter without prejudice and without additional prior notice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated October 4, 2019, in Topeka, Kansas.
