UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
ANDRE PAUL PROVOST, JR., DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lawrence J. O'Neill United States District Judge
ORDER DENYING RELIEF (DOC. 16)
On April 4, 2012, Defendant Andre Paul Provost, Jr. ("Defendant") filed papers titled "Answer to Complaint, Motion to Dismiss." ECF. No. 16. The papers again challenge this Court's jurisdiction and the United States attorney's validity in participating in this case. Id. at 1- 5. As set out in the Court's Order Re: Plaintiff's Motion to Strike, the Court finds these arguments meritless. ECF. No. 18, Order at 2-5. Further, Defendant's motion is filed late. See Fed. R. Civ. Pro. 12(a)(1)(A). The Court DENIES Defendant's "motion to dismiss."*fn1
IT IS SO ORDERED.
