UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
SUMA YAH HODGES ,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
No. 4: 15CV1339 RL W
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Plaintiff seeks leave to proceed in forma pauperis in this civil action under the Federal
Torts Claim Act. The motion is granted, and this case is dismissed .
Under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e), the Court is required to dismiss a complaint filed in forma
pauperis if it is frivolous, malicious, or fails to state a claim upon which relief can be granted.
Allegations are frivolous if they are delusional or based in fantasy. Se e Denton v. Hernandez,
504 U.S. 25 , 32-33 (1992). Allegations fail to state a claim if they are implausible. Ashcroft v.
Iqbal, 556 U.S . 662, 678 (2009).
Plaintiff sues various governmental agencies and officials because she believes that she
has been implanted with "an Electronic Medical Device for the sole purpose of torturing,
monitoring, tracking and tracing" her. She further believes that that this vast conspiracy was the
cause of her father ' s death and her estrangement from her daughters .
Plaintiffs allegations are delusional. The governmental conspiracy she believes she is
the victim of simply does not exist. As a result, this case is dismissed as frivolous.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiffs motion to proceed in forma pauperis [ECF
No. 2] is GRANTED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that this action is DISMISSED without prejudice.
An Order of Dismissal will be filed separately.
