ORDER

SYLVIA H. RAMBO, District Judge.

AND NOW, THEREFORE, this 9th day of June, 2017, in accordance with the accompanying memorandum, IT IS ORDERED THAT:

1. Plaintiff's motion to proceed in forma pauperis (Doc. Nos. 2 and 7) are construed as motions to proceed without full prepayment of the filing fee and are GRANTED; 2. Pursuant to the screening provisions of the Prison Litigation Reform Act, Plaintiff's complaint (Doc. No. 1) is DISMISSED for being barred by the doctrines of res judicata and the statute of limitations, and thus, for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted and without leave to file an amended complaint as it would be futile; and 3. The Clerk of Court is directed to CLOSE this case.
