Minnfee v. US Secret Service et al
ORDER ADOPTING 3 REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS. Signed by Judge Robert W. Schroeder, III on 2/22/2017. (sm, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS
BARRY DWAYNE MINNFEE
U.S. SECRET SERVICE, ET AL.
CIVIL ACTION NO. 5:16cv124
MEMORANDUM ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
OF THE UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
AND ENTERING FINAL JUDGMENT
The Plaintiff Barry Minnfee, proceeding pro se, filed this civil action complaining of alleged
deprivations of his rights. This Court referred the case to the United States Magistrate Judge
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §636(b)(1) and (3) and the Amended Order for the Adoption of Local Rules
for the Assignment of Duties to United States Magistrate Judges.
After review of the pleadings, the Magistrate Judge issued a Report recommending the
lawsuit be dismissed because Plaintiff, a well-known litigant, failed to show he has satisfied
multiple sanctions imposed upon him by the Fifth Circuit as well as district courts within the
State of Texas. In his objections, Plaintiff accuses the Magistrate Judge of committing fraud
having to do with how mail is delivered in the prison and of other acts and omissions. Plaintiff
also complains about a District Judge in Corpus Christi, Texas and a Magistrate Judge in the
Northern District of Texas.
His objections make no mention of the basis upon which the
Magistrate Judge recommended this lawsuit be dismissed and show no reason to reject this
The Court has conducted a careful de novo review of those portions of the Magistrate Judge’s
proposed findings and recommendations to which the Plaintiff objected. See 28 U.S.C. §636(b)(1)
(District Judge shall “make a de novo determination of those portions of the report or specified
proposed findings or recommendations to which objection is made.”) Upon such de novo review,
the Court has determined the Report of the Magistrate Judge is correct and the Plaintiff’s objections
are without merit. It is accordingly
ORDERED the Plaintiff’s objections are overruled and the Report of the Magistrate Judge
(docket no. 3) is ADOPTED as the opinion of the District Court. It is further
ORDERED the above-styled civil action is DISMISSED as barred by sanctions previously
imposed upon Minnfee by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals as well as district courts within the
Fifth Circuit. Such dismissal is with prejudice as to the refiling of this lawsuit while any sanctions
remain unsatisfied, but without prejudice to its refiling once Minnfee has satisfied all of the sanctions
imposed upon him and has obtained leave of court to file a new lawsuit. It is further
ORDERED that any and all motions which may be pending in this action are hereby
SIGNED this 22nd day of February, 2017.
