28 U.S.C.
§

1915(g) (1998).

Section 1915(g) requires this Court to consider prisoner actions dismissed before, as well as after, the enactment of the PLRA. The Court takes judicial notice of filings brought by

Plaintiff in a Court of the United States that were dismissed on the grounds that they were frivolous, malicious, or failed to state a claim upon which relief may be granted: (1) 3:06-cv-1052-J-33MCR (abuse of the judicial process) ; (2) 3:06-cv-1053-5-12MMH (abuse of the judicial process and frivolous); and, (3) 3:06-cv-1059-J-20TEM (frivolous)

.

Because Plaintiff has had three or more prior dismissals and is not under imminent danger of serious physical injury, his application to proceed forma ~ a u ~ e r iwill be denied and this s

action will be dismissed without prejudice. Plaintiff may initiate a new civil rights action by filing a new civil rights complaint form and paying the full $350.00 filing fee. Therefore, it is now
ORDERED AND ADJUDGED :
1.

Plaintiff's application to proceed

in forma pau~eris

(Doc. # 2 ) is DENIED. 2. This case is hereby DISMISSED without prejudice.
