CHARLIE BRINICH, et al.,
CIVIL ACTION NO. 1:12-CV-1539
AND NOW, this 11th day of September, 2012,upon consideration of plaintiff's
recently filed civil rights action (Doc. 1), in which he seeks to proceed in forma
pauperis (Doc. 2), and upon consideration of the fact that plaintiff has incurred
three strikes under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g), see Thomas v. Vuksta, No. 12-2612, 2012 WL
3055852 (3d Cir. July 27, 2012); Thomas v. McCoy, 467 F. App’x 94 (3d Cir. 2012);
Thomas v. Vuksta, No. 1:11-CV-1089, 2012 WL 1902551 (M.D. Pa. May 25, 2012); see
also Thomas v. McCoy, No. 1:10-CV-1639, 2011 WL 4411977, (M.D. Pa. Sept. 22,
2011), and it appearing that he alleges that while incarcerated at the State
Correctional Institution at Mahanoy he suffered various acts of retaliation such as
coercion, verbal harassment, interference with mail, issuance of false misconduct
report against him, and the denial of stationary, and it further appearing that he
does not demonstrate that a threat of danger is real and proximate and, therefore,
his claim fails to meet the imminent danger exception, see Abdul-Akbar v.
McKelvie, 239 F.3d 307, 312 (3d Cir. 2001)(en banc); Lewis v. Sullivan, 279 F.3d 526,

genuine emergencies,” where “time is pressing” and “a threat . . . is real and
proximate”), it is hereby ORDERED that:
Plaintiff's request to proceed in forma pauperis (Doc. 2) is DENIED.
Plaintiff's complaint (Doc. 1) is DISMISSED without prejudice
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g).
