In Re Sylvester Jones, Petitioner, 10 F.3d 13 (D.C. Cir. 1993)Annotate this Case
Before STEPHEN F. WILLIAMS, SENTELLE and KAREN LeCRAFT HENDERSON, Circuit Judges.
Upon consideration of the motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis and the petition for writ of mandamus, it is
ORDERED that the motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis be granted. It is
FURTHER ORDERED that the petition for writ of mandamus be denied. Petitioner has failed to demonstrate that his right to the relief sought is clear and indisputable. See Kerr v. United States District Court, 426 U.S. 394, 403 (1976); In re Thornburgh, 869 F.2d 1503, 1507 (D.C. Cir. 1989). The pleadings at issue did not meet the conditions of the district court's September 27, 1991 order requiring petitioner to obtain leave of court before filing any new action. Accordingly, petitioner has not established a right to relief against the named respondents. See Panko v. Rodak, 606 F.2d 168, 169 (7th Cir. 1979), cert. denied, 444 U.S. 1081 (1980). The filing of a motion to proceed in forma pauperis is not sufficient to meet the requirements of the court's order.
The Clerk is directed to enter the petition for writ of mandamus on the court's general docket.
