Case 2:22-cv-12162-TGB-APP ECF No. 22, PageID.219 Filed 01/19/23 Page 1 of 2
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
CHRISTOPHER ALLEN WHITE,
PLAINTIFF AND STRIKING
THEM AS IMPROPER
PLEADINGS (ECF NOS. 20
DANA NESSEL and MICHAEL
Plaintiff Christopher Allen White has sent two communications to
the Court regarding this closed case: an email dated January 9, 2023
(ECF No. 20), and a letter submitted through the Court’s pro se portal
on January 11, 2023 (ECF No. 21). These communications advance the
argument that the Court’s December 29, 2022 order dismissing White’s
complaint (ECF No. 17), and its accompanying judgment (ECF No. 18),
are potentially “forged” and “fraudulent.” White requests that these
documents be reviewed by a “clerical specialist” to confirm that they are
“reputable,” and he further demands responses to other emails he has
apparently sent to the Clerk’s office.
Although these communications are improvidently filed and state
no proper claim for relief, the Court will enter them on the docket so as
to maintain a proper record of White’s actions. Although White is a selfrepresented litigant and the Court has afforded him considerable
Case 2:22-cv-12162-TGB-APP ECF No. 22, PageID.220 Filed 01/19/23 Page 2 of 2
leniency, no litigant should be permitted to abuse the judicial system by
filing frivolous and vexatious materials. See Pilgrim v. Littlefield, 92
F.3d 413, 416 (6th Cir. 1996); see also Downs v. Westphal, 78 F.3d 1252,
1257 (7th Cir. 1996) (observing that being self-represented does not give
a litigant “the discretion to choose which of the court’s rules and orders
it will follow, and which it will willfully disregard”). Consequently,
communications received by White will not be responded to or docketed,
and if filed, will be summarily stricken. This case remains closed.
IT IS SO ORDERED, this 19th day of January, 2023.
