ROBERT JAMES SWINT,
ZANDERS PAPEIRE, et al.,
CASE NO. 1:21 CV 1017
JUDGE DAN AARON POLSTER
MEMORANDUM OF OPINION
Pro se Plaintiff Robert James Swint filed this action against Zanders Papeire, Masonite,
Alpha Piper Disaster Company, Operation Praying Mantis, Power Shift21, and the World
Health Organization. Although he claims he is asserting discrimination claims under Title VII,
42 U.S.C. § 2000e, the Complaint is composed entirely of unintelligible sexual statements. It
contains no allegations pertaining to discrimination in an employment or other setting. He does
not specify the relief he seeks.
Plaintiff submitted an Application to Proceed In Forma Pauperis with his Complaint.
The Application, however, contains no information. Plaintiff merely placed zero’s or the
notation “N/A” in every blank, suggesting he has no income, and no expenses. He does not
indicate that he is receiving support from any individual or entity and provides no explanation
of his finances.
Generally, the Court would deny such an Application as completely inadequate and
Case: 1:21-cv-01017-DAP Doc #: 2 Filed: 09/08/21 2 of 2. PageID #: 4
require the Plaintiff to pay the entire filing fee. Plaintiff, however, listed his address as 2600
Center Street N.E., Salem Oregon, which is the address of the Oregon State Hospital. The
envelope in which the Complaint was mailed has an Oregon postmark and indicates Plaintiff is
in the psychiatric unit. Moreover, the content of the pleading is delusional. The Complaint
contains no facts, no plausible legal claims and no prayer for relief. Denton v. Hernandez, 504
U.S. 25, 32-33 (1992). As such, the Court will grant the Application to Proceed In Forma
Pauperis and dismiss this action.
Accordingly, Plaintiff’s Application to Proceed In Forma Pauperis is granted and this
action is DISMISSED pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e). The Court certifies, pursuant to 28
U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3), that an appeal from this decision could not be taken in good faith.1
IT IS SO ORDERED.

UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
