Brooks, 2:97-cv-0056PMP-RJJ, Robinson v. Dahl, 2:97-cv-0356-PMP-LRL. Furthermore, in another action, Robinson v. Quig-Terry, 2:96-cv-0927-PMP-RLH, the Court ordered Plaintiff to file an amended complaint because his original complaint was frivolous. Plaintiff never filed an amended complaint, and the Court dismissed that action. That also operates as a dismissal for a frivolous action. The Court takes judicial notice of its prior records in the above matters. 1 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT DISTRICT OF NEVADA JAMES ROBINSON, #30289-048, 2:09-cv-0831-RCJ-RJJ ORDER BILL BROOKS, et al., Plaintiff is a prisoner proceeding pro se and has submitted a complaint (#1) attempting to initiate a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 1983.

Tierney v. Kupers, 128 F.3d 1310, 1312 (9th Cir. 1997). Plaintiff cannot proceed in forma pauperis in this action or any other civil action filed in any federal court because he has had three (3) or more prior actions dismissed for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted, or as frivolous or malicious. Plaintiff has not alleged, and the subject matter of this action does not indicate, that he is in imminent danger of serious physical injury. He must pre-pay the filing fee in full.
