Thomas v. The State of Michigan DHS
ORDER DENYING REQUEST TO FILE CASE AND TERMINATING ACTION Signed by District Judge Victoria A. Roberts. (CPin)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
Case No: 18-mc-50025
Honorable Victoria A. Roberts
THE STATE OF MICHIGAN DHS,
ORDER DENYING REQUEST TO FILE CASE AND TERMINATING THE ACTION
In this miscellaneous action, Elaina Thomas requests “permission to file new
claim/case [sic] in order to discuss and review Michigan Laws” concerning: (1) adoption
and transgender rights; (2) parental rights; and (3) the foster care system and child
protective services. Thomas’s filing does not contain a proposed complaint or any
information regarding what her claims or supporting facts are or would be.
Thomas has filed numerous lawsuits in this District, all of which have been
dismissed as frivolous and/or for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. See, e.g., Thomas
v. State of Michigan, No. 15-11165, Dkt. # 6 (E.D. Mich. May 1, 2015) (Leitman, J.)
(collecting cases). As a result, this Court has enjoined Thomas from filing any
pleadings without first obtaining leave. See Thomas v. Bailey, Case No. 12-14558, Dkt.
# 9 (E.D. Mich. Nov. 7, 2012) (Friedman, J.) (“Elaina Thomas is enjoined from filing any
further correspondence or pleadings ... without first obtaining permission from this Court
and providing proof of permission to the Clerk of the Court.”).
Because this filing, like Thomas’s other filings, is frivolous, and because Thomas
fails to include a proposed complaint, the Court DENIES Thomas’s request to file a new
case. This action is TERMINATED.
IT IS ORDERED.
