UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN SOUTHERN DIVISION KALVIN L. WASHINGTON, Plaintiff, Case No. 21-12062 v. Honorable Nancy G. Edmunds LORI DAWSON, et al., Defendants. _______________________________/ ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF’S MOTION TO REMOVE ALL CAPITAL LETTER NAMES [21] In an order dated September 22, 2021, the Court summarily dismissed this pro se prisoner civil rights case, because Plaintiff’s claims are barred by Heck v. Humphrey, 512 U.S. 477, 486-87 (1994). (ECF No. 5.) The matter is now before the Court on Plaintiff’s “motion to remove all capital letter names and replace them with the proper spelling names above which actually represent’s [sic] real people and not a piece of property.” (ECF No. 21.) Plaintiff’s motion appears to stem from what “[m]any sovereign citizen organizations teach” and that is “that whenever a Moor’s name is spelled in capital letters in a government document, the name identifies not the individual but instead his ‘corporate shell identity,’ or in other words a ‘straw man’ controlled by the government.” See Bey v. Ind., 847 F.3d 559, 560-61 (7th Cir. 2017). Because this belief has no basis in fact or law, Plaintiff’s motion to remove all capital letter names is DENIED.1   1 The Court also notes that Plaintiff has filed with the Court a number of supplemental filings (ECF Nos. 19, 20, 22), but these filings are improper considering the dismissal of this case, (see ECF No. 5; see also ECF No. 18). SO ORDERED. s/Nancy G. Edmunds Nancy G. Edmunds United States District Judge Dated: August 1, 2022 I hereby certify that a copy of the foregoing document was served upon counsel of record on August 1, 2022, by electronic and/or ordinary mail. s/Lisa Bartlett Case Manager
