Attwood v. Singletary, 516 U.S. 297 (1996)

Attwood v. Singletary


No. 95-6710


Decided January 22, 1996
516 U.S. 297

ON MOTION FOR LEAVE TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS

Syllabus

In November, 1995, this Court twice invoked Rule 39.8 to deny petitioner Attwood in forma pauperis status. All seven petitions he had filed at that time, and the two he has filed since, were patently frivolous, and were denied without recorded dissent.

Held: for the reasons discussed in Martin v. District of Columbia Court of Appeals, 506 U.S. 1, Attwood is denied leave to proceed in forma pauperis in the instant case, and the Clerk is directed not to accept any further petitions for certiorari from him in noncriminal matters unless he pays the required docketing fee and submits his petition in compliance with this Court’s Rule 33. This order will not prevent Attwood from petitioning to challenge criminal sanctions which might be imposed against him, but it will allow this Court to devote its limited resources to the claims of petitioners who have not abused the certiorari process.

Motion denied.
