MEMORANDUM AND ORDER: Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 1915(b) and 1914(a), Plaintiff is nonetheless assessed the $350.00 civil filing fee. This action is DISMISSED for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. 28 U.S.C. §§ 1915(e)(2)(B) and 1915A. This dismissal is without prejudice solely as to Plaintiff's claims for excessive force and retaliation. Because Plaintiff's motion to amend his complaint does not cure the deficiencies resulting in the dismissal of his lawsuit, the motion (Doc. No. 5) is DENIED as moot. Any appeal of this Order would not be in good faith as required by 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3). IT IS SO ORDERED. Signed by District Judge Aleta A. Trauger on 7/28/2017.
