Six Unknown Named Agents of Federal Bureau of Narcotics, 403 U.S. 388 (1971), in connection with his criminal conviction in this court. The plaintiff’s request to proceed in forma pauperis under 28 U.S.C. §1915 is granted. For the reasons discussed below, the plaintiff’s claims are dismissed.BACKGROUNDThe plaintiff brings this action challenging his 1993 conviction for his participation in a criminal enterprise engaged in the distribution of narcotics.
