Clerf<, u.s Diltrict Court
District Of Montana
LESLIE F. LAMBERT, JR.,
MONTANA STATE PRISON,
United States Magistrate Judge John T. Johnston entered his Findings and
Recommendations in this case on September 19, 201 7, recommending that this
action be dismissed for failure to state a claim. Plaintiff Leslie F. Lambert, Jr.
("Lambert") failed to timely object to the findings and recommendations, and so
waived the right to de novo review of the record. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(l). The
Court will therefore review the record for clear error. McDonnell Douglas Corp.
v. Commodore Bus. Mach., Inc., 656 F.2d 1309, 1313 (9th Cir. 1981).
After reviewing the record and finding no clear error,
IT IS ORDERED that Judge Johnston's Findings and Recommendations
(Doc. 10) are ADOPTED IN FULL. This matter is DISMISSED for failure to
state a claim.
The Clerk of Court is directed to close this matter and enter judgment in
favor of Defendant pursuant to Rule 58 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
The Clerk of Court is directed to have the docket reflect that the Court
certifies pursuant to Rule 24(a)(3)(A) of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure
that any appeal of this decision would not be taken in good faith. No reasonable
person could suppose an appeal would have merit. The record makes plain the
Complaint lacks arguable substance in law or fact.
The Clerk of Court is directed to have the docket reflect that this dismissal
counts as a strike pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g) because Lambert failed to state
a claim upon which relief may be granted.
DATED this 2.bfftday of October, 2
Dana L. Christensen, Chief Judge
United States District Court
