1 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 2 DISTRICT OF NEVADA 3 Case No.: 2:23-cv-01416-JAD-BNW Brandon Dale Lowery, 4 Plaintiff Order Denying Plaintiff’s Motion for Emergency Temporary Relief 6 El Cortez Hotel and Casino, [ECF No. 38] 5 v. 7 Defendant Brandon Dale Lowery sues the El Cortez Casino for $20,000,000 for sending “out a mass 8 9 text message to El Cortez employees claiming that [he] was a Sexual Predator.”1 On March 20, 10 2024, Lowery filed a “motion for emergency temporary relief—financial assistance for basic 11 needs,” contending that “the delay in the resolution of critical issues in this case has left [him] 12 homeless and without basic necessities” and asking the court to provide him with financial 13 assistance to “secure temporary shelter” and “ensure access to adequate food and water.”2 While the undersigned is sympathetic to Lowery’s situation, the federal court does not 14 15 provide financial assistance to litigants. Lowery was granted permission to proceed in forma 16 pauperis in this case and is thus relieved of the obligation to pay the court’s filing fee and is 17 entitled to have the U.S. Marshals Service effectuate service free of charge.3 Those are the only 18 monetary benefits available from this court. 19 20 21 22 1 ECF No. 6 at 4. 23 2 ECF No. 38. 3 See ECF No. 4; ECF No. 12. 1 2 Conclusion IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Lowery’s motion for emergency temporary relief 3 [ECF No. 38] is DENIED. 4 _______________________________ U.S. District Judge Jennifer A.
