ORDER DISMISSING Miscellaneous CASE. Petitioner's submissions will no longer be accepted for filing, absent the filing of a civil suit. Signed by District Judge Nancy G. Edmunds. (CBet)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
In re Al-Hakeem El-Shabazz-Ali,
Misc. Case No. 16-mc-50608
Honorable Nancy G. Edmunds
ORDER CLOSING MISCELLANEOUS CASE
Beginning in April of 2016, pro se Petitioner Al-Hakeem El-Shabazz-Ali has filed a
number of materials with this Court, including a copy of a chauffeur’s license, various
documents captioned as affidavits, declarations, and judicial notices, and records from a
state court proceeding in which Petitioner’s wife evidently sought and obtained a personal
protection order against Petitioner. Understandably, the Clerk of the Court was uncertain
as to the purpose for which Petitioner submitted these materials, and the present
miscellaneous case was opened so that these submissions could be docketed and acted
upon as the Court deemed appropriate.
Having reviewed Petitioner’s submissions, the Court finds that this miscellaneous case
should be closed for lack of any jurisdictional basis or cognizable claim for relief. Nothing
in any of the materials submitted by Petitioner can be construed as stating a claim upon
which relief can be granted, nor as raising any matters over which this Court may exercise
subject matter jurisdiction. To the extent that Petitioner might take issue with rulings in a
state court proceeding, this Court has no freestanding authority to review a state court’s
rulings or supervise its proceedings. Rather, Petitioner’s proper recourse is to pursue an
appeal or other available avenues of state court relief in accordance with the rules and
procedures established by the Michigan courts.
For these reasons,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that this miscellaneous case is
CLOSED. Petitioner’s submissions will no longer be accepted for filing, absent the
commencement of a civil suit through the filing of a complaint accompanied by either (i)
payment of the customary filing fee, or (ii) an application to proceed in forma pauperis.
