The plaintiff sought voluntary dismissal The court says such a motion doesn't absolve him of the consequences of his actions under the PLRA, and notes his prior pattern of seeking voluntary dismissal (7 of 20 cases), characterizing it as "strategic" and done after court and defendants have expended substantial resources on the case The court therefore dismisses this case as malicious and notes this is his second strike. See: Johnson v. Edlow, 37 F.Supp.2d 775 (E.D.Va. 1999).
