West is a pro se prisoner proceeding in forma pauperis. Since West is proceeding in forma pauperis, Judge Lynch screened West's complaint under 28 U.S.C. § 1915. Judge Lynch recommends dismissing the claims against the United States because West does not request any relief from the United States, nor does West allege any conduct that would subject the United States to liability. Judge Lynch recommends dismissing the claims with prejudice because West could not possibly amend his complaint to adequately state a claim against the United States. 1 Neither party objected to Judge Lynch's Findings and Recommendation. The Court therefore reviews the Findings and Recommendation for clear error. McDonnell Douglas Corp. v. Commodore Bus. Mach., Inc., 656 F.2d 1309, 1313 (9th Cir. 1981).
