IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF GEORGIA MACON DIVISION GIOVANNI HERNANDEZ-AGUIR, Plaintiff, VS. STATE OF GEORGIA, et. al. Defendants. ________________________________ : : : : : : : : : NO. 5:12-CV-0334-MTT-MSH ORDER OF DISMISSAL Plaintiff GIOVANNI HERNANDEZ-AGUIR, a prisoner at the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center in Macon, Georgia, has filed a pro se complaint under 42 U.S.C. ' 1983 and seeks leave to proceed without prepayment of the $350.00 filing fee or security therefor pursuant to 28 U.S.C. ' 1915(a). In his Complaint, Plaintiff alleges that the Bibb County Juvenile Court erred in removing his child from her mother and placing the child in the custody of Georgia Department of Human Services. Plaintiff’s Complaint, however, does not allege any constitutional violation or violation of federal law. He thus fails to state a claim under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, and this Court lacks jurisdiction to hear his objections to the custody order, see 28 U.S.C. §§ 1331,1332. Therefore, after having conducted a preliminary review of Plaintiff's Complaint, as required by 29 U.S.C. ' 1915A(a), the Court finds Plaintiff has failed to state any claim upon which relief may be granted. Plaintiff’s Compliant is DISMISSED pursuant to 28 U.S.C. ' 1915A(b)(1). Leave to proceed in forma pauperis is GRANTED, but only for the purpose of this dismissal. Plaintiff’s Motion for the Appointment of Counsel is MOOT. SO ORDERED this 27th day of August, 2012 S/ Marc T. Treadwell MARC T. TREADWELL, JUDGE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT jlr -2-
