On November 4, 2013, the Court received two new documents from Dr. Vora: (1)
another application to proceed in district court without prepaying fees or costs and
(2) a twenty-five page dense and largely indecipherable significance. The Court has
reviewed these new documents and it has directed the Clerk not to file them and to
return them to Dr. Vora with this Order. On November 28, 2011, in Vora v. Perry,
the Court issued a Cok order against Dr. Vora, placing her on notice that “her
conduct of this case is revealing her to be a frivolous litigant and that she may merit
filings restrictions under Cok v. Family Court of Rhode Island, 985 F.2d 32, 35 (1st
Order at 2-3. In accordance with that Order, the Court declines to
accept either document.
To be clear, there is nothing pending before this Court on either Vora v. Perry,
1:11-cv-00278-JAW, where the Court of Appeals Mandate affirming the dismissal of
the case was received on February 13, 2013, or In re: Waiver of PACER Fees by
Chandan Vora, 1:13-mc-00148-JAW, where the period for appeal of the Court’s
denial of her application to waive PACER fees expired in mid-August, 2013. The
Court will not accept any further filings on these closed cases and directs the Clerk
of Courts of this District not to docket any further filings on these cases from Dr.
Vora and to return any such filings to her.
