CHARLES L. BOBO, Plaintiff,
COUNTY OF FRESNO DEPENDENCY COURT, Defendant.
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
BRIAN A. TSUCHIDA, Magistrate Judge.
The Court has reviewed Charles Bobo's pro se complaint and application to proceed in forma pauperis ("IFP"), Dkt. 1, and recommends DENYING the IFP application and DISMISSING the complaint with prejudice for the reasons below.
(1) Mr. Bobo filed a complaint against the County of Fresno Dependency Unit regarding the dependency of his daughter. Dkt. 1. Mr. Bobo has filed similar complaints in Bobo v.

See C13-1044, at Dkt. 7.
(2) The present complaint is essentially the same complaint Mr. Bobo filed in C13-1044-RSM and which Judge Martinez dismissed as frivolous. As such, the Court recommends DENYING Mr. Bobo's IFP application and DISMISSING the present complaint with prejudice.

Mr. Bobo is also advised he may file objections to this Recommendation for Judge Jones's review. Objections are limited to five pages. If Mr. Bobo wishes to file objections, he must file them no later than December 31, 2013. The Clerk should note the matter ...
