CIVIL NO. 3:17-CV-2245-M-BK
ORDER ACCEPTING FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATION
OF THE UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
The United States Magistrate Judge made Findings, Conclusions, and a Recommendation
in this case. No objections were filed. The District Court reviewed the proposed Findings,
Conclusions, and Recommendation for plain error. Finding none, the Court ACCEPTS the
Findings, Conclusions, and Recommendation of the United States Magistrate.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that this action is DISMISSED WITHOUT
PREJUDICE for want of jurisdiction. See FED. R. CIV. P. 12(h)(3) (“If the court determines at
any time that it lacks subject-matter jurisdiction, the court must dismiss the action.”).
The Court prospectively CERTIFIES that any appeal of this action would not be taken
in good faith. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3); FED. R. APP. P. 24(a)(3). In support of this
certification, the Court adopts and incorporates by reference the Magistrate Judge’s Findings,
Conclusions, and Recommendation. See Baugh v. Taylor, 117 F.3d 197, 202 and n.21 (5th Cir.
1997). Based on the Findings and Recommendation, the Court finds that any appeal of this
action would present no legal point of arguable merit and would, therefore, be frivolous.
