Leaming v. Obama

United States District Court, D. Columbia.

September 26, 2013

Kenneth Wayne Leaming [1], Plaintiff,
v.
Barack Hussein Obama, Defendant

Decided September 19, 2013.

KENNETH WAYNE LEAMING, Petitioner, Pro se, SEATTLE, WA.

MEMORANDUM OPINION

Beryl A. Howell, United States District Judge.

This matter is before the Court on its initial review of plaintiff's pro se complaint and application to proceed in forma pauperis. The application will be granted and the complaint will be dismissed. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915A (requiring the Court to screen and dismiss a prisoner's complaint upon a determination that it is frivolous).

Page 2

Plaintiff is a prisoner incarcerated at the SeaTac Federal Detention Center in Seattle, Washington. He purports to register a claim against President Barack Obama or the United States, but for what injury is wholly unclear. Since the complaint " lacks an arguable basis either in law or in fact," Neitzke v. Williams, 490 U.S. 319, 325, 109 S.Ct. 1827, 104 L.Ed.2d 338 (1989), it will be dismissed. See Crisafi v. Holland, 655 F.2d 1305, 1307-08, 211 U.S.App.D.C. 75 (D.C. Cir. 1981) (" A court may dismiss as frivolous complaints . . . postulating events and circumstances of a wholly fanciful kind." ). A separate Order of dismissal accompanies this Memorandum Opinion.
