Michael K. Ciacci, Plaintiff,
Director of the Administrative Office of the United States Courts, et al., Defendants.
EMMET G. SULLIVAN, District Judge.
This matter is before the Court on its initial review of Plaintiff's pro se complaint seeking injunctive relief and his 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 fails to state a claim upon which relief may be granted).
Plaintiff is a prisoner at the District of Columbia Jail. In his one-page complaint, plaintiff seeks an order compelling the Administrative Office of the United States Courts and the "Administrative Director" of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia to investigate his "arrest, warrant, indictment, transfer of custody, and resulting detention, " which he alleges are "illegal and unenforceable." Plaintiff seeks his release "immediately." The named administrative offices have no authority to conduct such an investigation or to release plaintiff from his detention. Hence, this case will be dismissed. A separate Order accompanies this Memorandum Opinion.
