|EDDIE DEAN FLUKER,||
Before SEYMOUR, MURPHY, and O'BRIEN, Circuit Judges.
Eddie Dean Fluker, a federal prisoner, filed complaints(*) against the United States and its officers or employees, seeking damages and injunctive relief. The district court concluded his complaints were legally frivolous and dismissed them pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915A(b). He appeals, pro se.(2) Like the original complaints, the appeal is frivolous and we dismiss it. 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B)(i).
Relying on Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of Fed. Bureau of Narcotics, 403 U.S. 388 (1971), and the Federal Tort Claims Act, 28 U.S.C. §§ 2671-80, Fluker claims: 1) he was denied access to the courts because the prison does not have Colorado legal research materials, which he needs to pursue a medical malpractice claim, and 2) one defendant refused to photocopy certain documents for him. He also raises claims asserting he was retaliated against by various defendants when they filed fraudulent incident reports against him in violation of his constitutional rights.
We conclude Mr. Fluker's appeal is frivolous. We adopt the reasoning of the district court and DISMISS the appeal as frivolous. The dismissal of this appeal, combined with the district court's dismissal of his complaint as frivolous, means Mr. Fluker has accumulated two strikes under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g).(3) Entered by the Court:

3."In no event shall a prisoner bring a civil action or appeal a judgment in a civil action or proceeding under this section if the prisoner has, on 3 or more prior occasions, while incarcerated or detained in any facility, brought an action or appeal in a court of the United States that was dismissed on the grounds that it is frivolous, malicious, or fails to state a claim upon which relief may be granted . . . ." 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g).
