On August 16, 2017, the court ordered Plaintiff to show cause why he is
entitled to proceed in forma pauperis (“IFP”) pursuant to the provisions of 28
U.S.C. §1915(g). (Filing No. 8.) The court listed three cases brought by Plaintiff
that were dismissed because they failed to state a claim upon which relief may be
granted. (Id. at CM/ECF p. 2.) For Plaintiff to proceed IFP, he needs to show the
court that any or all of the three dismissed cases do not meet the criteria set forth in
§1915(g) or, alternatively, that he faces imminent danger of serious physical
Plaintiff filed a response to the court’s Memorandum and Order. (Filing No.
9.) In his response, Plaintiff does not deny that, while incarcerated, he filed three
cases that were dismissed because they failed to state a claim upon which relief
may be granted. He also does not allege that he faces any danger of physical injury.
Instead, Plaintiff argues that he does not have “three strikes,” because, in his prior
cases, he was granted IFP status or the court did not order him to pay the filing fee,
none of which is a relevant consideration here.
In short, Plaintiff has not shown that he is entitled to proceed IFP, nor has he
paid the full $400 filing fee. For these reasons, this matter must be dismissed.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that:
This matter is dismissed without prejudice.
A separate judgment will be entered.
Dated this 12th day of September, 2017.
BY THE COURT:
