RECHT, Case No.: C 07-4423 WDB ORDER DISMISSING COMPLAINT AND DENYING APPLICATION TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS Pending before the Court is Plaintiff's Application to Proceed In Forma Pauperis, filed on August 27, 2007. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1915(e), where a plaintiff seeks to proceed in forma pauperis, the Court must dismiss the complaint if it determines that the complaint is frivolous or malicious, or that the plaintiff has failed to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. 28 U.S.C. 1915(e)(2)(B)(i) and (ii). Here, Plaintiff's Complaint falls directly within the category of pleadings identified in 1915(e)(2)(B)(i) and (ii). Similar to earlier complaints filed by Plaintiff in this Court, the instant complaint is "an incoherent stream of consciousness which could not reasonably be characterized as a complaint." See Order of Dismissal in Recht v. Army, C 07-2670 JL, filed May 24, 2007. Only one example is the opening sentence of Case 4:07-cv-04423-WDB Document 6 Filed 09/05/2007 Page 2 of 2 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 Plaintiff's complaint, which reads: "Since 1960 February Sixteenth the United States CIA/FBI and Actor and Producers and the Persidents and Vice Presidents of the United States have sealing all products even weponds illegally and giving everything to terrorist such as property's Woodbe Island, ships, tanks and weponds and nucular plants and weponds, cocaine and herion using my social security number . . ." See Complaint at p. 62 (page 62 is the first page of the Complaint) (misspellings in original). The Complaint continues in a similar manner for multiple pages without setting forth a viable claim against Defendants. There is no indication that Plaintiff can cure the deficiency. The Court also notes that Plaintiff has filed at least ten cases within the last year. As noted by Magistrate Judge James in dismissing one of these cases just two days ago, "[t]hese cases show a flagrant abuse of the court system by someone who has filed floridly delusional complaints." See Order Dismissing Case in Recht v. Warren Productions, C 07-4410 MEJ, filed on August 29, 2007. Accordingly, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1915(e)(2)(B), Plaintiff's Complaint is DISMISSED and her application to proceed in forma pauperis is DENIED as moot.1 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: 9-4-07 ____________________________ WAYNE D. BRAZIL. United States Magistrate Judge A Magistrate Judge may not deny an application to proceed in forma pauperis or issue an Order dismissing a case without the consent of plaintiff. See Tripati v. Rison, 847 F.2d 548 (9th Cir. 1988). Plaintiff here has filed a consent to Magistrate Judge jurisdiction and, thus, this dispositive Order is permissible. ORDER, page 2 1
