UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
Case No. 2:17-cv-02846-JAD-NJK
Department of Homeland Security, et al.,
[ECF No. 1]
Pro se prisoner Victor Tagle brings this civil-rights action and applies to proceed in forma
Mr. Tagle is a frequent filer at this courthouse. On at least three occasions, the Court has
dismissed actions filed by Mr. Tagle while in detention as malicious or for failure to state a claim
upon which any relief may be granted. Title 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g) provides, “if [a] prisoner has,
on 3 or more prior occasions, while incarcerated or detained in any facility, brought an action or
appeal in a court of the United States that was dismissed on the grounds that it is frivolous,
malicious, or fails to state a claim upon which relief may be granted,” he may not proceed in
forma pauperis and, instead, must pay the full $400.00 filing fee in advance unless he is “under
imminent danger of serious physical injury.”2
Mr. Tagle alleges issues with his previous military service and immigration status, but his
allegations fail to show that he is in imminent danger of serious physical injury.3 So, if Mr. Tagle
wants to proceed with this action, he must pre-pay the $400.00 filing fee in full.
ECF Nos. 1, 1-1.
28 U.S.C. § 1915(g).
Id. See Andrews v. Cervantes, 493 F.3d 1047, 1055 (9th Cir. 2007) (holding that the exception
to § 1915(g) applies if the complaint makes a plausible allegation that the prisoner faced
imminent danger of serious physical injury at the time of filing).
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff’s application to proceed in forma
pauperis [ECF No. 1] is DENIED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that this action will be dismissed without prejudice and
without further prior notice unless plaintiff pays the $400.00 filing fee in full by December
The Clerk of the Court is directed to retain the complaint [ECF No. 1-1] and send
plaintiff two copies of this order. Plaintiff must make the necessary arrangements to have one
copy of this order attached to the check paying the filing fee.
