United States District Court, D. Columbia
December 12, 2005.
RONALD D. VETETO, Plaintiff,
DOUGLAS H. GINSBURG, et al., Defendants.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: COLLEEN KOLLAR-KOTELLY, District Judge
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.
