IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DIVISION OF ARKANSAS
JACKSONVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT
A district court has the authority to dismiss a case sua sponte for failure to state a claim.1
Plaintiff’s complaint, in its entirety, reads:
The Judge paid TP to shoot me in my arm and they have been arresting me on
terroristic threatening charges and they are putting charges on me I did not commit.
Because Plaintiff’s complaint is nonsensical and fails to state a cause of action against Defendant
for which relief may be granted, this case is DISMISSED. Plaintiff’s motion for leave to
proceed in forma pauperis (Doc. No. 1) is DENIED as MOOT.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 5th day of April, 2016.
