RICHARD BOWER, ADC #144498, Plaintiff,
RAY HOBBS, Director, Arkansas Department of Correction, et al., Defendants.
BRIAN S. MILLER, District Judge.
The proposed findings and recommendations from United States Magistrate Judge Jerome T. Kearney have been received. After careful consideration of the timely objections, as well as a de novo review of the record, the proposed findings and recommendations are adopted in their entirety. Accordingly,
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff's complaint against defendants is dismissed, for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted.
2. Dismissal of this action constitutes a "strike" within the meaning of the Prison Litigation Reform Act (PLRA), 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g).
3. The Court certifies that an in forma pauperis appeal from an Order and Judgment dismissing this action would not be taken in good faith, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
