Warren v. Federal Government
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER: IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiffs motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis [Doc. #2] is DENIED. An Order of Dismissal will be filed contemporaneously. Signed by District Judge Carol E. Jackson on 10/23/2013. (KMS)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
REV. CALVIN WARREN,
THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT,
No. 4:13CV2093 DDN
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before the Court upon the plaintiff’s motion to proceed in forma
pauperis. In the complaint, plaintiff alleges that the government is “possessed by
Satan” and “prejudiced” and is persecuting his family and attempting to murder them
“because they are Saints.” He further complains that the “prejudiced white race,”
“prejudiced black race,” and “other un-Godly Americans” are “murderers” and should
be subject to the death penalty.
Plaintiff has filed several and frivolous cases in this Court regarding a
religiously motivated conspiracy against his family. The Court previously warned
plaintiff that it would not allow him to proceed in forma pauperis if he continued to
bring the same frivolous lawsuits again and again. Warren v. Federal Government,
4:13CV1878 CEJ (E.D. Mo.). This case is no different from his previous cases.
Consequently, the Court will deny plaintiff’s motion for leave to proceed in forma
pauperis and will dismiss this action without prejudice to refiling as a fully-paid
complaint. See In re Tyler, 839 F.2d 1290, 1292 (8th Cir. 1988) (“judicial resources
are limited in the short run and need to be protected from wasteful consumption.
Frivolous, bad faith claims consume a significant amount of judicial resources,
diverting the time and energy of the judiciary away from processing good faith
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff’s motion for leave to proceed in
forma pauperis [Doc. #2] is DENIED.
An Order of Dismissal will be filed contemporaneously.
Dated this 23rd day of October, 2013.
CAROL E. JACKSON
