CATHY L. TOOLE, Plaintiff,
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, et al, Defendants.
This matter is before the Court on the plaintiffs application to proceed in forma pauperis and pro se complaint.
Notwithstanding the long list of defendants to this action, see Compl. (caption), the gravamen of the plaintiffs complaint arises from the action, or inaction, of federal judges to whom her cases in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi were assigned. Plaintiff alleges that these judges have deprived her of equal and impartial justice under the law. See generally Id . at 1-4 (page numbers designated by the plaintiff). She demands $6 million as compensation "for all the mental anguish that all the federal judges ... employed in the state of Mississippi has put [her] through." Id. at 4-5.
The plaintiff's “claims against the .. . federal judges are barred on judicial immunity grounds” Caldwell v. Kagan, 455 F.App'x 1, 1 (D.C. Cir. 2011) (citing Forrester v. White, 484 U.S. 219 (1988) and Sindram v. Suda, 986 F.2d 1459, 1460 (D.C. Cir. 1993)). Accordingly, the complaint must be dismissed for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. See, e.g., Tsitrin v. Lettow, 888 F.Supp.2d 88, 91 (D.D.C. 2012). An Order is issued separately.
