UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
No. 4:15CV1339 RLW
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Plaintiff has filed a post-dismissal motion for leave to file an amended complaint. 1 She
alleges that the United States, the FBI, federal judges, the former Attorney General, the Secretary
of Defense, and other government officials are attacking her "through a high energy device that
is lethal and can kill, and disable a human being."
Plaintiff claims that this conspiracy is
responsible for a great many things, including car troubles, her depression, physical distress, the
death of her father, and other severe difficulties.
The Court dismissed plaintiffs complaint under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e) on the basis that it
was delusional under Denton v. Hernandez, 504 U.S. 25 (1992). Unfortunately, the problems
that plaintiff are dealing with are products of her own imagination and do not give rise to relief in
federal court. As a result, plaintiffs motion for leave to file an amended complaint is denied.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiffs motion for leave to file an amended
complaint [ECF No. 6] is DENIED with prejudice.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that plaintiffs motion to expedite [ECF No. 7] is
