Nash v. Ashley et al
ORDER DISMISSING CASE without prejudice and denying 1 motion to proceed in forma pauperis as moot. Signed by Judge Kristine G. Baker on 06/02/2015. (rhm)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
LITTLE ROCK DIVISION
Case No. 4:15-CV-0300 KGB
ASHLEY, FLETCHER PROPERTY
MANAGEMENT, and BIG BROTHER
Before the Court is plaintiff Gregory Nash’s motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis
(Dkt. No. 1). Mr. Nash has also filed what the Court construes as his complaint (Dkt. No. 2). For
the following reasons, the Court dismisses without prejudice Mr. Nash’s complaint and denies as
moot Mr. Nash’s motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis (Dkt. No. 1).
Under 28 U.S.C. §1915(e)(2), “the court shall dismiss the [in forma pauperis] case at any
time if the court determines that . . . the action . . . is frivolous or malicious; [or] fails to state a
claim on which relief may be granted.” 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B). In this case, Mr. Nash’s
complaint lists the named defendants above, states “$3 for a key,” and indicates his monthly
income. Mr. Nash has failed to state a claim or otherwise indicate a basis in the law on which this
Court may grant relief. Moreover, Mr. Nash’s complaint indicates no basis for federal court
jurisdiction over this action. Therefore, upon a screening of Mr. Nash’s complaint pursuant to 28
U.S.C. § 1915, and for the foregoing reasons, the Court dismisses without prejudice Mr. Nash’s
complaint (Dkt. No. 2). Accordingly, the Court denies as moot Mr. Nash’s motion to proceed in
forma pauperis (Dkt. No. 1).
SO ORDERED this 2nd day of June, 2015.
