ORDER DENYING MOTION TO
PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS ON
No. C 13-80053 MISC SI
Order also to be filed in C 12-4187 EMC
JUDGE ALEXANDER WILLIAMS, JR.,
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR
THE DISTRICT OF MARYLAND,
In an order filed March 20, 2013, the Court conducted a pre-filing review of plaintiff’s proposed
complaint, concluded that the complaint was frivolous, and directed the Clerk of the Court not to accept
the new complaint for filing. Plaintiff has appealed that order and has filed a motion to proceed in forma
pauperis on appeal. Pursuant to Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 24(a)(2), the Court DENIES that
motion and certifies that the appeal is not taken in good faith. As set forth in the March 20, 2013 order,
the proposed complaint suffers from the same types of factual and legal deficiencies as the previous
frivolous lawsuits that led to the declaration of plaintiff as a vexatious litigant.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: April 15, 2013
