Re: Request for records concerning plaintiff

Disposition: Dismissing plaintiff's complaint without prejudice; denying plaintiff's motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis

  • Litigation Considerations:  The court finds that "[plaintiff] has been repeatedly advised why his action is not in proper form and he has failed to comply with the court's orders."  "Based on the foregoing, after a thorough review of the magistrate judge's Report and the record in this case, the court adopts Magistrate Judge['s] . . . Report and Recommendation and incorporates it herein."  The court relates that the "Magistrate Judge . . . recommends dismissing the complaint without prejudice because [plaintiff] has failed to prosecute this case and has failed to comply with three separate court orders directing him to bring this action into proper form."
