UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
September 1, 2000
DAVID L. WHITEHEAD, PLAINTIFF,
GEORGE TENET, DIRECTOR, CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Paul L. Friedman United States District Judge
The Court has before it plaintiff's pro se "Motion to Vacate Dismissal Orders Due to Lack of Jurisdiction and Transfer Action to the Eastern District of Virginia," and defendant's August 29, 2000, opposition thereto. Plaintiff's motion, like so many others that he has filed with this Court, is entirely frivolous and will be denied.
Judgment was entered by the Court in this case on March 31, 1997, dismissing the complaint with prejudice and dismissing the case in its entirety. Plaintiff filed a motion for reconsideration that was denied on June 3, 1997, and then filed an appeal that was rejected by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on August 22, 1997. *fn1 After letting two years pass, plaintiff filed a frivolous motion for various forms of relief that this Court denied on October 20, 1999. Plaintiff appealed that ruling but again was rejected by the court of appeals. Mr. Whitehead is now seeking to "vacate dismissal orders" and have this case transferred to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. Plaintiff's one-page motion is as senseless and frivolous as most of what he has filed in this Court over the past decade. *fn2 It is entirely without merit and will be denied.
Upon consideration of the foregoing, it is hereby ORDERED that plaintiff's motion is DENIED; it is FURTHER ORDERED that plaintiff is prohibited from filing anything further in this closed case without first seeking leave of Court. From this day forward, the Clerk's Office is directed not to permit any document submitted by plaintiff in this or any other closed case to be filed without the Court first determining whether plaintiff should be granted leave to file the document. SO ORDERED.
