May 12, 2015
ERIC FLORES, Plaintiff,
UNITED STATES ATTORNEY GENERAL and FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION, Defendants.
OPINION AND ORDER
MICHAEL J. McSHANE, District Judge.
Plaintiff, pro se, seeks to proceed in forma pauperis (IFP) in this action alleging that an "organized group of executive employees of the federal government" used "advanced technology with a direct signal to a satellite in outerspace [sic]" to violate his rights under the First Amendment. Magistrate Judge Mark D. Clarke issued a Report and Recommendation on April 24, 2015, in which he recommended that this Court dismiss plaintiffs complaint as frivolous. The matter is now before this Court. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B); Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b).
Because no objections to the Report and Recommendation were timely filed, this Court reviews only the legal principles de novo. See United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th Cir. 2003) (en banc); see also United States v. Bernhardt, 840 F.2d 1441, 1444-45 (9th Cir. 1988) (citations omitted). Having reviewed the legal principles de novo, this Court finds no error in Judge Clarke's Report and Recommendation, ECF No.4.
This Court ADOPTS Judge Clarke's Report and Recommendation, ECF No.4, in full. Accordingly, plaintiffs motion to transfer to multidistrict litigation, ECF No. 1-3, is DENIED, and plaintiffs application for leave to proceed IFP, ECF No.2, is DENIED
IT IS SO ORDERED.
