IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS
WARDEN USP BEAUMONT
CIVIL ACTION NO. 1:17-CV-183
ORDER ADOPTING THE MAGISTRATE
JUDGE’S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
Patrick Mullins, a prisoner confined at USP Beaumont, proceeding pro se, filed what
appeared to be a petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241. After review, the
complaint was liberally construed as a civil rights action filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983.
The Court referred this matter to the Honorable Keith Giblin, United States Magistrate Judge,
at Beaumont, Texas, for consideration pursuant to applicable laws and orders of this Court. The
Magistrate Judge recommends plaintiff’s motion to proceed in forma pauperis be denied and the
complaint be dismissed as plaintiff is barred from filing any civil rights actions unless he submits
the requisite filing fee or otherwise obtains permission from the court to file the complaint.
The Court has received and considered the Report and Recommendation of United States
Magistrate Judge filed pursuant to such order, along with the record, and pleadings. No objections
to the Report and Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge were filed by the parties.1
Plaintiff received a copy of the Report and Recommendation on May 16, 2017 (docket entry no. 4).
Accordingly, the findings of fact and conclusions of law of the Magistrate Judge are correct,
and the report of the Magistrate Judge is ADOPTED. Plaintiff has ten (10) days to pay the
$400.00 filing fee in this action. Failure to do so will result in dismissal of this civil rights action
for want of prosecution pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(b).
