ORDER GRANTING PLAINTIFF'S MOTION FOR LEAVE TO
PROCEED WITHOUT PREPAYMENT OF THE FILING FEE (DKT. NO. 2) AND
PAMELA PEPPER United States District Judge.
20, 2019, the plaintiff filed this complaint against forty,
unrelated defendants who allegedly have injured the plaintiff
and caused him harm. Dkt. No. 1. The plaintiff started taking
notes in 2011 whenever something would happen. Id.
at 12. He now believes he has become a target of the
defendants, who are determined to sabotage the
plaintiff's reputation. Id. The court will
dismiss the case as frivolous and for failure to state a
Plaintiff's Ability to Pay the Filing Fee
allow the plaintiff to proceed without prepaying the filing
fee, the court first must decide whether the plaintiff can
pay the fee; if not, it must determine whether the lawsuit is
frivolous, malicious or fails to state a claim upon which
relief can be granted. 28 U.S.C. §§1915(a) and
1915(e)(2)(B)(i). The plaintiff's request to proceed
without prepaying the fee says that he does not have any
income of any kind. Dkt. No. 2 at 1-2. The request indicates
that the plaintiff has $600 a month in expenses-$300 a month
for rent and $300 a month for utilities. Id. at 2-3.
He doesn't own any property of value. Id. at 3.
The court concludes that the plaintiff does not have the
ability to pay the filing fee.
court next must decide whether the plaintiff has raised
claims that are legally “frivolous or malicious,
” that fail to state a claim upon which relief may be
granted, or that seek monetary relief from a defendant who is
immune from such relief. 28 U.S.C. § 1915A(b). To state
a claim under the federal notice pleading system, a plaintiff
must provide a “short and plain statement of the
claim” showing that he is entitled to relief.
Fed.R.Civ.P. 8(a)(2). A plaintiff does not need to plead
every fact supporting his claims; he needs only to give the
defendant fair notice of the claim and the grounds upon which
it rests. Bell Atl. Corp. v. Twombly, 550 U.S. 544,
555 (2007) (quoting Conley v. Gibson, 355 U.S. 41,
47 (1957)). At the same time, the allegations “must be
enough to raise a right to relief above the speculative
level.” Id., 550 U.S. at 555. Because the
plaintiff represents himself, the court must liberally
construe the allegations of his complaint. Erikson v.
Pardus, 551 U.S. 89, 94 (2007).
