Benjamin Holden and Rasheeda Holden v. Michael Astrue

November 12, 2012

BENJAMIN HOLDEN AND RASHEEDA HOLDEN, PLAINTIFFS,
v.
MICHAEL ASTRUE, COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, DEFENDANT.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Sandra M. Snyder United States Magistrate Judge

ORDER DISMISSING AS PLAINTIFF

RASHEEDA HOLDEN

On April 28, 2011, Plaintiff and claimant Benjamin Holden, proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis, brought this action in his own name and in the name of his daughter, Rasheeda Holden. Despite Ms. Holden's being named as a plaintiff in the caption, the complaint includes no substantive allegations relating to her beyond identifying her as Benjamin Holden's daughter. All documentation filed in this action has been prepared and signed only by Mr. Holden. As a layman, Mr. Holden may represent himself, but he may not represent the interests of another. Harris v. Spellman, 150 F.R.D. 130, 132 n. 2 (N.D. Ill. 1993). Nor does Ms. Holden, a non-party to the proceedings below, have standing to pursue the appeal of the Commissioner's denial of her father's application for supplementary security income under the facts alleged in this action. 42 U.S.C. § 405(g).

Accordingly, on its own motion, the Court hereby DISMISSES Rasheeda Holden as a plaintiff in this action.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
