CURTIS RAY BALLOU, Plaintiff,
BRIAN OWEN, Commissioner; STAN SHEPARD, Warden; and MARY ALSTON, Medical Director, Defendants.
HONORABLE J. RANDALHALL UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
After a careful, de novo review of the file, the Court concurs with the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation, to which no objections have been filed. The Magistrate Judge correctly determined this case is due to be dismissed because Plaintiff failed to return the requisite in forma pauperis papers, and Plaintiff abused the judicial process by providing dishonest information about his prior filing history. Accordingly, the Court ADOPTS the Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge as its opinion and DISMISSES this case without prejudice. Because the case is dismissed, the motion to amend and motion for preliminary injunction, as well as the motion to compel filed after entry of the Report and Recommendation, are DENIED as MOOT. (Doc. nos. 10, 16, 19.) Upon the foregoing, the Court CLOSES this civil action.
