United States District Court, Southern District of Georgia, Statesboro Division
December 1, 2014
ROGER EUGENE SAPP, Plaintiff,
STANLEY WILLIAMS; TAMMY WOODS; PAMELA HALL; JESSICE WILLIAMS; and JESSE HOWELL, Defendants.
B. AVANT EDENFIELD JUDGE
After an independent and de novo review of the entire record, the undersigned concurs with the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation, to which Plaintiff filed Objections. In his Objections, Plaintiff asserts that he has a skin discoloration on his chest from when another inmate was jogging in the dormitory, crashed into Plaintiff, and caused Plaintiff to spill extremely hot water on himself. Plaintiff contends this assertion shows that he was in imminent danger of serious physical injury at the time he filed his Complaint.
Contrary to Plaintiff's assertion, having a skin discoloration falls short of showing that he was in imminent danger of serious physical injury at the time he filed his Complaint. Thus, Plaintiff does not meet the exception of 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g)'s three-strikes provision and cannot proceed with this cause of action without prepaying the requisite filing fee.
Plaintiff's Objections are overruled. The Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation is adopted as the opinion of the Court. Plaintiff's Complaint is DISMISSED, with prejudice, as a sanction for Plaintiffs dishonesty in his original Complaint. The Clerk of Court is directed to enter the appropriate judgment of dismissal.
