VETETO v. GINSBURG

United States District Court, D. Columbia


December 12, 2005.

RONALD D. VETETO, Plaintiff,
v.
DOUGLAS H. GINSBURG, et al., Defendants.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: COLLEEN KOLLAR-KOTELLY, District Judge

MEMORANDUM OPINION

This matter is before the Court on consideration of plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis and pro se complaint. Plaintiff sues judges of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. He alleges that the defendants have denied him access to the federal courts in violation of the First and Fifth Amendments to the United States Constitution by, among other things, requiring plaintiff's compliance with the Prison Litigation Reform Act, see 28 U.S.C. § 1915.

Defendants enjoy absolute immunity from liability for damages for acts committed within their judicial jurisdiction. See Mirales v. Waco, 502 U.S. 9 (1991); Forrester v. White, 484 U.S. 219 (1988); Bradley v. Fisher, 13 Wall. 335, 20 L.Ed. 646 (1872). The Court will dismiss the complaint because it fails to state a claim on which relief can be granted. See 28 U.S.C. §§ 1915(e)(2)(B), 1915A(b)(1). An Order consistent with this Memorandum is issued separately on this same date.
