United States District Court, District of Columbia
June 22, 2015
STANLEY SEEKFORD, Plaintiff,
DAVID BUCKLEY, Defendant.
COLLEEN KOLLAR-KOTELLY, District Judge.
This matter is before the Court on plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis and his pro se complaint. The Court will grant the application and dismiss the complaint.
Plaintiff is "seeking criminal charges" against the defendants "for violations of federal codes (18 U.S. code 1512(a)(b)(c)(d)." Compl. at 1. There is no private right of action under 18 U.S.C. § 1512, however. See, e.g., Peavey v. Holder, 657 F.Supp.2d 180, 190-91 (D.D.C. 2009), aff'd, No. 09-5389, 2010 WL 3155823 (D.C. Cir. Aug. 9, 2010) (per curiam). The complaint fails to state a claim upon which relief can be granted, and therefore it will be dismissed. An Order accompanies this Memorandum Opinion.
