Hamilton v. Department of Homeland Security

United States District Court, District of Columbia

October 14, 2014

KENRICK HAMILTON, Plaintiff,
v.
DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY, Defendant.

MEMORANDUM OPINION

AMY BERMAN JACKSON, District Judge.

This matter comes before the Court upon review of plaintiff's application for leave to proceed in forma pauperis and his pro se complaint. The instant complaint is substantially similar to that filed in a recent lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. See Hamilton v. Dep't of Homeland Sec., No. 14-0913 (E.D. Va. filed July 21, 2014). "Considerations of comity and orderly administration of justice dictate that two courts of equal authority should not hear the same case simultaneously." Washington Metro. Area Transit Auth. v. Ragonese, 617 F.2d 828, 830 (D.C. Cir. 1980) (citation omitted). Accordingly, the Court will dismiss the complaint as duplicative. An Order is issued separately.
