We have jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1291. We review de novo the district court’s interpretation and application of § 1915(g), Andrews v. Cervantes, 493 F.3d 1047, 1052 (9th Cir. 2007), and for an abuse of discretion its denial of leave to proceed in forma pauperis, O’Loughlin v. Doe, 920 F.2d 614, 616 (9th Cir. 1990). We affirm. The district court did not abuse its discretion by revoking Taylor’s in forma pauperis status because it properly determined that Taylor has three strikes under § 1915(g), and Taylor failed to allege adequately that the “prison officials continue with a practice that has injured him or others similarly situated in the past[.]” Andrews, 493 F.3d at 1055-57 (discussing the imminent danger exception to § 1915(g)) (emphasis added). We do not consider on appeal “[d]ocuments or facts not presented to the district court[.]” United States v. Elias, 921 F.2d 870, 874 (9th Cir. 1990). All pending requests are denied.
