The Court finds that Plaintiff qualifies for in forma pauperis status, yet his Complaint will be dismissed. The Court must examine Plaintiff’s claim and dismiss it if frivolous or legally insufficient. 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2). Here, Plaintiff demands a “Service Agreement” for a cause of action “Reorganization Act of 1939.” No further information is provided. As such, Plaintiff has failed to state a basis for federal subject matter jurisdiction and has failed to state a facially plausible claim for relief. For the reasons provided in the Opinion for Civil Action No. 14-6296, Plaintiff is on notice that he may be sanctioned if he continues to file unsubstantiated and repetitive lawsuits. An appropriate Order will be filed. s/Stanley R. Chesler STANLEY R. CHESLER United States District Judge Dated: February 20, 2015 Dockets.Justia.com
