UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
B. Von Blanckensee
CASE NO.: 1:16CV2448
JUDGE JOHN ADAMS
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
On October 5, 2016, Petitioner Terry Bender filed this action pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241.
However, on October 4, 2006, a colleague on this Court ordered as follows:
Consequently, Terry L. Bender is permanently enjoined from filing any new
lawsuits or other documents without seeking and obtaining leave of court in
accordance with the following:
1. He must file a "Motion Pursuant to Court Order Seeking Leave to File" with any
document he proposes to file and he must attach a copy of this Order to it (any such
motion should be filed in a miscellaneous case).
2. As an exhibit to any motion seeking such leave, he must also attach a declaration
which has been prepared pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1746 or a sworn affidavit
certifying that (1) the document raises a new issue which has never been previously
raised by his in this or any other court, (2) the claim or issue is not frivolous, and (3)
the document is not filed in bad faith.
3. By means of a second exhibit, he must identify and list: (a) the full caption of
each and every suit which has been previously filed by his or on his behalf in any
court against each and every defendant in any new suit he wishes to file, and (b) the
full caption of each and every suit which he has currently pending.
4. As a third exhibit to the motion, he must provide a copy of each complaint
identified and listed in accordance with the foregoing paragraph 3 and a certified
record of its disposition.
The court may deny any motion for leave to file if the proposed document is
frivolous, vexatious or harassing. If the motion is denied, the document shall not be
filed. Further, plaintiff's failure to comply with the terms of this Order shall be
sufficient ground for this court to deny any motion for leave to file, and may be
considered an act of contempt for which he may be punished accordingly.
Further, to prevent future harassment by plaintiff and the waste of this court's
limited resources, the Clerk's Office is hereby ordered as follows:
(1) Any document submitted by Mr. Bender prior to him obtaining leave to file
shall not be filed unless it is specifically identified as a "Motion Pursuant to Court
Order Seeking Leave to File," and unless it contains: 1) an affidavit or sworn
declaration as required by this order; 2) a copy of this Memorandum of Opinion;
and, 3) the exhibits required by this Memorandum of Opinion.
Bender v. United States, Case No. 1:06CV1504, Doc. 2 at 8-10. In the instant matter, the clerk’s
office inadvertently failed to follow the dictates of the existing permanent injunction and accepted
As the filing does not attempt to comply with the requirements imposed on
Bender, the instant petition is hereby DISMISSED. Bender is instructed that further failure to
comply with the provisions set forth above may result in a finding of contempt.
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C § 1915(a)(3), the Court certifies that Bender may not take an appeal
from the Court’s decision in good faith, and that there is no basis upon which to issue a certificate
of appealability. 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c); Fed. R. App. P. 22(b).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
