Doc. 1. For good cause shown, the undersigned GRANTS Plaintiff’s motion. Doc. 1. Because Plaintiff is proceeding IFP, the Court is required to screen his complaint pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2) to determine whether it is “frivolous or malicious or fails to state a claim upon which relief may be granted.” Johnson v. City of Wakefield, 483 F. App’x 256, 260 (6th Cir. 2012); Brewer v. Cleveland Mun. Sch. Dist., 84 F. App’x 570, 571 (6th Cir. 2003). In his pro se complaint, Plaintiff alleges that the federal government “has surveillance on [her] and her family” that has been ongoing “for 20 years.” Doc. 1-2 at PageID 7. Plaintiff further claims that the government puts chemicals in her home, water, and food; urinates and excretes in her home; and has caused her a number of personal injuries to her -- including causing pressure in her head, her leg to break, and her teeth to fall out. Id. These allegations can aptly be characterized as “describing fantastic or delusional scenarios”; thus, satisfying the definition of frivolousness.
