Todd v. Alimi
ORDER adopting 8 Report and Recommendation. This action is DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE. Plaintiff Stephen Lawrence Todd, Jr.'s application to proceed in forma pauperis 2 is DENIED AS MOOT. (Written Opinion) Signed by Judge Joan N. Ericksen on March 3, 2017. (CBC)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF MINNESOTA
STEPHEN LAWRENCE TODD, JR., also
known as Stephen Lee Blanks,
Case No. 16-CV-3381 (JNE/SER)
SAMSON O. ALIMI,
This matter is before the Court on a Report and Recommendation (“R&R”) issued by the
Honorable Steven E. Rau, United States Magistrate Judge, on February 9, 2017. (Dkt. No. 8.)
The Court received no objections to the R&R. Nevertheless, the Court conducted a de novo
review of the record. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(3); D. Minn. LR
72.2(b)(3). This action is similar to an action previously brought by Todd, No. 16-CV-2741.
Todd complains of the same conduct in this action as in that previous action. The only notable
difference is that this action is against a different defendant. The Court dismissed Todd’s
previous action for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction and denied as moot his application to
proceed in forma pauperis. The Court does the same in this action for the same reasons.
Therefore, IT IS ORDERED THAT:
This action is DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.
Plaintiff Stephen Lawrence Todd, Jr.’s application to proceed in forma
pauperis [Dkt. No. 2] is DENIED AS MOOT.
LET JUDGMENT BE ENTERED ACCORDINGLY.
Dated: March 3, 2017.
