MEMORANDUM OPINION: For the reasons set forth above, Plaintiff's motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis [Doc. 1] is GRANTED. Even liberally construing the complaint in favor of Plaintiff, however, it fails to state a claim upon which relief may be granted under § 1983 as to all Defendants. Accordingly, this action will be DISMISSED pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 1915(e)(2)(B) and 1915(A). The Court CERTIFIES that any appeal from this action would not be taken in good faith and would be totally frivolous. See Rule 24 of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure. Signed by District Judge J Ronnie Greer on 2/8/2018. (Copy of Memorandum Opinion mailed to Christopher Horton at WASHINGTON COUNTY DETENTION CENTER, PO BOX 97, JONESBOROUGH, TN 37659, the Sheriff of Washington County at Sheriff's Office, P.O Box 1217, Johnson City, TN 37605-1217 and NEF sent to Court's financial deputy) (JCK)
