On May 1, 2012, this Court signed an order discharging a warrant and sanctions order against Plaintiff's former counsel, Ralston L. Courtney. In response, Plaintiff Janetta Sconiers, proceeding pro se, appeals the May 1, 2012 order to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Not only does Plaintiff lack standing to pursue an appeal on behalf of her former attorney, the May 1, 2012 order was favorable to Mr. Courtney. In addition, Plaintiff again appeals substantially the same issues addressed in her recent prior appeals (Nos. 11-15828, 11-16825, 11-17626, 12-15074, 12-15130, 12-15176, 12-15405, 12-15406, 12-15407, 12-015408, 12-15415, 12-15416, 12-15724, and 12-16040).
Because the appeal filed May 15, 2012, is malicious and frivolous, this Court recommends that Plaintiff's request for waiver of the filing fee be denied.
