Lawsuits dismissed: complainant is delusional

Serial litigant Toni Patricia Irons Burley’s suits against U.S. government and President Obama were dismissed. Six of her lawsuits were dismissed by U.S. District Judge Richard Leon. The linked article has links to the judgements. Two of them contain these statements:

A complaint may be dismissed under 28 U.S.c. § 1915(e)(2) as frivolous when it describes fantastic or delusional scenarios, contains “fanciful factual allegation[s],” Neitzke v. Williams, 490 U.S. 319,325 (1989), or lacks “an arguable basis in law and fact.” Brandon v. District of Columbia Bd. of Parole, 734 F.2d 56, 59 (D.C. Cir. 1984). This complaint qualifies for such treatment. A separate Order of dismissal accompanies this Memorandum Opinion.

The other says this:

Pro se litigants must comply with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Jarrell v. Tisch, 656 F. Supp. 237, 239 (D.D.C. 1987). Rule 8(a) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure requires complaints to contain “( 1) a short and plain statement of the grounds for the court’s jurisdiction [and] (2) a short and plain statement of the claim showing that the pleader is entitled to relief.” Fed. R. Civ. P. 8(a); see Ashcroft v. Iqbal, 129 S.Ct. 1937, 1950 (2009); Ciralsky v. CIA, 355 F.3d 661, 668-71 (D.C. Cir. 2004). The Rule 8 standard ensures that defendants receive fair notice of the claim being asserted so that they can prepare a responsive answer and an adequate defense and determine whether the doctrine of res judicata applies. Brown v. Califano, 75 F.R.D. 497, 498 (D.D.C. 1977).

Plaintiff, a resident of Kingston, New York, sues the United States, President Barack Obama “and administration,” and the State of New York. She seeks $60 million “and property and land back.” Compl. at 3. In the complaint, plaintiff mentions fraud, bribery, conspiracy, and constitutional violations, but she states no coherent facts to provide any notice of a claim. A separate Order of dismissal accompanies this Memorandum Opinion.

I hope that she can get some medical help.
