Holding: A Prison Litigation Reform Act provision that generally prevents a prisoner from bringing suit in forma pauperis — that is, without first paying the filing fee — if he has had three or more prior suits “dismissed on the ground[ ] that [they] ... fail[ed] to state a claim upon which relief may be granted,” refers to any dismissal for failure to state a claim, whether with prejudice or without.
Judgment: Affirmed, 9-0, in an opinion by Justice Kagan on June 8, 2020. Justice Thomas joined the majority opinion as to all but footnote 4.
