United States District Court, D. Maine
ORDER ON ALL PENDING MOTIONS
GEORGE Z. SINGAL, District Judge.
1. Application To Proceed In Forma Pauperis
Before the Court are Plaintiff Alla Iosifovna Shuper's Applications to Proceed In Forma Pauperis (ECF Nos. 4, 11 & 15). The Court hereby GRANTS Plaintiff leave to proceed in forma pauperis in this action.
2. Motion To Change The Name Of The Defendants
Also before the Court is Plaintiff Shuper's Motion to Change the Name of the Defendants (ECF Nos. 18 & 19) to add Maine Behavioral Health Care, which is GRANTED.
3. Motions For Reconsideration
Also before the Court are the Motion for Reconsideration (ECF No. 3) and the Motion to Amend the Motion for Reconsideration (ECF No. 5). Both of these Motions pertain to the Court's proceed in forma pauperis in each of her docketed cases. (See Order (ECF No. 2).) In light of the Court's decision to grant Plaintiff's request to proceed in forma pauperis, the Court finds both of these requests for reconsideration (ECF Nos. 3 & 5) MOOT. The Court notes that similar motions for reconsideration were filed in each of Plaintiff's then twenty-four cases.
4. Appeal To The Chief Judge
Plaintiff Shuper has also filed an Appeal to the Chief Judge (ECF No. 6). To the extent that Plaintiff Shuper is appealing the Court's November 18, 2014 Order to the Chief Judge, there is no such right to appeal to the Chief Judge, and it is therefore DENIED. As with the Motion for Reconsideration and the Motion to Amend the Motion for Reconsideration, pro se Plaintiff Shuper's Appeal to the Chief Judge was filed in each of her then twenty-four cases.
5. Change In Pro Se Filing Status
Plaintiff Shuper has also filed a Motion to Accept the Change in Pro Se Filing, thereby requesting that she be permitted to file documents manually rather than electronically (ECF No. 8). The Court GRANTS the Motion, which has also been filed in each of her cases.
6. Review Of The Complaint Under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)
Upon the Court's review of the Complaint, the Court concludes that the case must be dismissed in accordance with 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2). Through the handwritten Complaint, Plaintiff Shuper attempts to bring a case against Ashley Perrone, Cary Roberts, Barbara Pierson and the Former Community Counseling Center ("CCC"). The Complaint alleges that Plaintiff Shuper had been a patient of CCC since approximately 2007, and that she was "kicked out" of CCC in July or August of 2012. (Compl. ¶¶ 1, 4.) The Complaint further alleges that her therapy was changed, that she was forced to fill out a questionnaire, that she requested changes to the questionnaire, that there were errors in her medical records, and that she wrote a complaint against CCC in general. (Id. ¶¶ 5, 6, 7-9, 12, 14, 15-16.) The Complaint references the numerous other cases that Plaintiff Shuper has filed pro se in this Court and before the Maine Human Rights Commission and the subject matters of those Complaints. (Id. ¶¶ 1-2. 17-20.)
For relief, the Complaint states that Plaintiff Shuper lived without the necessary mental or emotional support from June or July of 2012 to 2013. After the request for relief, the Complaint contains seven pages of post scripts, numbered one through twenty-four, that reference other cases and request that the Court contact the named individuals. (Id. at Page ID # 8-14.) The Complaint ...
