Case 3: 17-cv-30105-MAP Document 5 Filed 10/03/17 Page 1 of 8
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF MASSACHUSETTS
CIVIL ACTION NO. 17-30105-KAR
MICHELLE A. CRISTELLO, RENEE KHAN,
HON. EDWARD DONNELLY JR., and
HON. THERESA J. BISENIUS
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
For the reasons stated below, the Court will allow the motion to proceed informa pauperis
and recommend that the action be dismissed.
Prose plaintiff Manes Pierre filed a self-prepared complaint against two state court judges,
the Commissioner of the Department of Revenue and a Massachusetts Department of Revenue
Counsel. Plaintiff claims that defendants deprived plaintiff of his constitutional rights, apparently
in two proceedings in the Massachusetts state courts relating to his child support obligations and
divorce. Plaintiff alleges that the Courts and agencies of the Commonwealth are motivated "by
the need to increase the court revenue by denying plaintiff access to justice" and that plaintiff was
"deprived of his constitutional rights for the monetary benefit of the defendants." Citing to a 2013
Boston Globe article about judicial pay raises generally, plaintiff alleges that the Commonwealth's
District and Probate Court judges are somehow corrupt and interested in profiting off of persons
such as plaintiff.
In particular, plaintiff references two state civil actions in which he was or is a party, styled
Department of Revenue et al. v. Pierre, Ml 16-Wl091-WD (the "Paternity Action") and Pierre v.
