David J. Bradley, Clerk
CIVIL NO. 2:16-CV-324
Petitioner Barry Dwane Minnfee is an inmate in the Texas Department of
Criminal Justice – Correctional Institutions Division (TDCJ-CID), and is currently
incarcerated at the Allred Unit in Iowa Park, Texas. He filed a civil rights action
under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 on August 2, 2016, Dkt. No. 1, and an application to proceed
in forma pauperis on August 2, 2016, Dkt. No. 2. The Court has before it these
pleadings and the Memorandum and Recommendations of the magistrate judge to
whom this case was referred pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b), Dkt. No. 6 (“M&R”).
The deadline to file objections to the magistrate judge’s proposed findings and
recommendations has passed, and the docket sheet shows that no objections have
been filed. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) (setting 14-day deadline to file objections); Fed.
R. Civ. P. 72(b)(2) (same); see also M&R at 7 (advising parties of 14-day deadline).
After independently reviewing the record and considering the applicable law,
the Court adopts the magistrate judge’s proposed findings and recommendations;
DENIES Petitioner’s application for leave to proceed in forma pauperis, Dkt. No. 2;
and DISMISSES without prejudice Petitioner’s lawsuit, Dkt. No. 1. The Clerk shall
close this case after entering the accompanying judgment.
It is so ORDERED.
SIGNED this 16th day of December, 2016.
