Mumin v. Frakes et al
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER - that Plaintiff's request to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal is denied. Ordered by Senior Judge Richard G. Kopf. (Copy mailed to pro se party) (KLF)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
SCOTT FRAKES, et al.,
Plaintiff has filed a notice of appeal (Filing No. 24), which the court liberally
construes as including a request to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal.
Plaintiff is a prisoner who has not been allowed to proceed in forma pauperis
in this action because he has on three prior occasions, while incarcerated, brought an
action in this court that was dismissed as frivolous or for failure to state a claim upon
which relief can be granted, and Plaintiff has not shown he is in imminent danger of
serious physical injury. See 28 U.S.C. §1915(g).
In his notice of appeal, Plaintiff reasserts that he will suffer respiratory damage
because of exposure to methane gas and black mold, but, as explained in the court’s
previous memorandum and order (Filing No. 22), this speculative injury does not fall
within the exception to § 1915(g).
IT IS ORDERED that Plaintiff’s request to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal
DATED this 11th day of May, 2017.
BY THE COURT:
s/ Richard G. Kopf
Senior United States District Judge
