After careful consideration, for the reasons stated herein, the plaintiff's Complaint will be dismissed. By the instant Complaint, the plaintiff sets forth a number of nearly nonsensical and conclusory allegations. the plaintiff's Complaint states: On the date of 9-27-06 time 5:35 p.m. a staff worker did wrong the staff member also lie to his united manager who work for Mr. W. Jobe and Mike Easley the In particular, Dockets.Justia.com Case 1:06-cv-00362-GCM Document 4 Filed 11/07/2006 Page 2 of 3 Governor of N.C. as of now.

Find out what happen to all my property my stocks gold bonds . . . as of 61.3 billion came from my father estate where it came in the mail as legal mail. By way of relief for the foregoing unidentified constitutional violation, the plaintiff asks the Court to award him "1.5 billion per day . . . ." Suffice it to say, however, the instant Complaint must be summarily dismissed for the plaintiff's failure to state a constitutional claim for relief. Indeed, it is well settled that district courts are authorized to dismiss actions which are determined to be frivolous, i.e., lacking "an arguable basis either in law or in fact." Neitzke v. Williams, 490 U.S. 319, 325 (1989). To be sure, the power of the district court to dismiss factually frivolous claims includes claims, such as the instant ones, which are obviously "fantastic" or "delusional." Adams v. Rice, 40 F.3d72, 74 (affirming dismissal of complaint which was "nonsensical on its face"). Consequently, in light of the foregoing legal principles, the Court has determined that the plaintiff's Complaint must be dismissed as factually and legally frivolous. See 28 U.S.C. 2 Case 1:06-cv-00362-GCM Document 4 Filed 11/07/2006 Page 3 of 3 1915A(b)(1). SO ORDERED. Signed: November 7, 2006 3
