October 16, 2014
TROY MATTHEW JACKSON, Plaintiff,
FREDRICK COUNTY COMMONWEALTH, Defendant.
Troy Matthew Jackson, Pro Se Plaintiff.
JAMES P. JONES, District Judge.
The plaintiff, Troy Matthew Jackson, proceeding pro se, has filed this civil rights action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and applies to proceed in forma pauperis. He claims that he was falsely arrested for failing to register as a sex offender.
According to court records, Jackson has filed at least three actions in a court of the United States that were dismissed as frivolous, including: Jackson v. Burgess, et. al., No. 2:03CV00514 (E.D. Va. July 28, 2003); Jackson v. Sprid, No. 7:02CV01235 (W.D. Va. Oct. 7, 2003); and Jackson v. CFW Adult Reg. Det. Ctr, et. al., 7:03CV00160 (W.D. Va. Oct. 16, 2003)). Therefore, Jackson may not proceed with this action unless he either pays the $350.00 filing fee or shows that he is "under imminent danger of serious physical injury." 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g). As Jackson has neither prepaid the filing fee nor demonstrated that he is "under imminent danger of serious physical injury, " I must dismiss his complaint without prejudice under § 1915(g).
A separate Final Order will be entered herewith. The clerk will send a copy of that Final Order and this Opinion to the plaintiff.
