United States District Court, District of Columbia
June 30, 2015
STANLEY SEEKFORD, Plaintiff,
ELAINE MAUCK, Defendant.
COLLEEN KOLLAR-KOTELLY, District Judge.
According to plaintiff, defendant is responsible for "violations of (US Code Title 18 Chapter 73) prevention of justice by the Berkeley County Council and Government." Compl. at 1. He demands "[a] full pardon on [his] fabricated record, " as well as "[c]ompensation for the time [he] served[, ] title to [his] property and possibly charges on Kyle Stephens who stole [his] car [and] identity and possessions claiming to be following orders of the CIA." Id.
Chapter 73 of Title 18 of the United States Code pertains to obstruction of justice. See generally 18 U.S.C. § 1501 et seq. Because there is no private right of action under these provisions, the complaint fails to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. See, e.g., Roettgen v. Jardins, No. 14-cv-02913, 2015 WL 1538085, at *3 (S.D. Cal. Apr. 7, 2015); Guttilla v. City of New York, No. 14-CV-156, 2015 WL 437405, at *11 (S.D.N.Y. Feb. 3, 2015).
The Court will grant plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis and will dismiss the complaint. An Order accompanies this Memorandum Opinion.
