JESSE RILES, PLAINTIFF,
PAUL L. FRIEDMAN, UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Paul L. Friedman, United States District Judge
ORDER GRANTING MOTION TO DISMISS COMPLAINT WITHOUT LEAVE TO AMEND
The Honorable Manuel L. Real
The motion of Defendant Paul L. Friedman, United States District Judge ("Defendant") to dismiss the Complaint of plaintiff Jesse Riles ("Plaintiff") came on for hearing on August 23, 2010. Defendant appeared by Assistant United States Attorney Jonathan B. Klinck. Plaintiff appeared in pro se. The Court finds that:
(1) the acts alleged in the Complaint against Defendant are protected by absolute judicial immunity; (2) there is no personal jurisdiction over Defendant to hear the claims alleged in the Complaint; and (3) venue lies in the District Court for the District of Columbia, and not in this Court. Based on the foregoing, and good cause appearing therefor,
IT IS ORDERED that Plaintiff's Complaint be dismissed. Since the defects stated above cannot be corrected by amendment, the Complaint is dismissed with prejudice pursuant to the futility doctrine.
Honorable Manuel L. Real UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
