United States Court of Appeals
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CIRCUIT
No. 20-5211 September Term, 2020
Filed On: November 9, 2020
In re: Eric E. Taylor,
ON APPEAL FROM THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
BEFORE: Henderson, Rogers, and Walker, Circuit Judges
This appeal was considered on the record from the United States District Court
for the District of Columbia and on the brief filed by appellant. See Fed. R. App. P.
34(a)(2); D.C. Cir. Rule 34(j). It is
ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that the district court’s order, filed June 12, 2020,
be affirmed. The district court properly dismissed the case as frivolous and for failure to
state a claim on which relief can be granted. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B)(i) and (ii);
Neitzke v. Williams,
490 U.S. 319
, 325 (1989) (“[A] complaint . . . is frivolous where it
lacks an arguable basis either in law or in fact.”); Ashcroft v. Iqbal,
556 U.S. 662
(2009) (“A complaint must contain sufficient factual matter, accepted as true, to ‘state a
claim to relief that is plausible on its face.’”) (quoting Bell Atl. Corp. v. Twombly,
550 U.S. 544
, 570 (2007)).
Pursuant to D.C. Circuit Rule 36, this disposition will not be published. The Clerk
is directed to withhold issuance of the mandate herein until seven days after resolution
of any timely petition for rehearing or petition for rehearing en banc. See Fed. R. App.
P. 41(b); D.C. Cir. Rule 41.
FOR THE COURT:
Mark J. Langer, Clerk
