That case is presently pending before the Honorable Louis L. Stanton of this Court under docket number ECF 1:20-CV-10993 (LLS). As this complaint raises the same claims, no useful purpose would be served by litigating this duplicate lawsuit. Therefore, this complaint is dismissed without prejudice to Plaintiff's pending case under docket number ECF 1:20-CV-10993 (LLS). The Clerk of Court is directed to mail a copy of this orde r to Plaintiff and note service on the docket. Plaintiff's complaint is dismissed as duplicative. The Court certifies, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3), that any appeal from this order would not be taken in good faith, and therefore in forma pauperis status is denied for the purpose of an appeal.
