United States District Court, District of Columbia
May 26, 2015
Fabian Tinsley, Plaintiff,
Clerk of Court, Defendant.
EMMET G. SULLIVAN, District Judge.
Plaintiff, proceeding pro se, has submitted a complaint and an application to proceed in forma pauperis. The application will be granted and the complaint will be dismissed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915A, which requires 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. See id. § 1915A(b).
Plaintiff, a prisoner at the Federal Correctional Institution in Fairton, New Jersey, sues the Clerk of Court "to file a new complaint... to address the current status of his incarceration." Compl. at 1. He also seeks to renew a dismissed claim with regard to his desired placement in a psychiatric facility. See Tinsley v. United States, slip op., No. 13-1899 (UNA) (D.D.C. Dec. 2, 2013). But the Clerk of Court has no control over the conditions or location of a prisoner's confinement, and plaintiff has not named anyone who does. Hence, this case will be dismissed. A separate order accompanies this Memorandum Opinion.
