PageID 46 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA TAMPA DIVISION JASON T. HUNTER, Plaintiff, v. CASE NO. 8:17-cv-464-T-23AEP SHAWN JILES, et al., Defendants. ____________________________________/ ORDER In an incomprehensible complaint, Jason T. Hunter alleges (Doc. 1) that Shawn Jiles (an attorney apparently appointed to represent Hunter in a state-court criminal action), Peter Estrada (the state-court judge who presided in the action), and a "transcriber" for the Highland County Sheriff violated Hunter's First, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Tenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendment rights. Also, Hunter appears to allege "unfair practices in international trade" and violations of "Involuntary Bankruptcy Law 1842," "Bankruptcy Rule 3861," the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and the Lanham Act. No facts suggest any merit in Hunter's complaint. In a thorough report, Magistrate Judge Porcelli recommends (Doc. 10) denying Hunter's motion (Doc. 2) to proceed in forma pauperis and dismissing the action as frivolous in accord with 28 U.S.C. § 1915. More than fourteen days after entry of the report and PageID 47 recommendation, no response appears. The report and recommendation (Doc. 10) is ADOPTED, Hunter's motion (Doc. 2) to proceed in forma pauperis is DENIED, and the action is DISMISSED. The clerk is directed to terminate any pending motion and to close the case. ORDERED in Tampa, Florida, on June 1, 2017. -2-
