|JUNGLE DEMOCRACY; KAMAL
Plaintiffs - Appellants,
USA GOVERNMENT AT WASHINGTON DC & AT DENVER; GOD/S ALL OVER THE US,
Defendants - Appellees.
District of Colorado
(D.C. No. 06-CV-676-ZLW)
Rule 8 requires that the parties file "a short and plain statement of the claim showing that the pleader is entitled to relief." Fed. R. Civ. P. 8(a)(2). A pleading also must be specific enough to "give the defendant fair notice of what the plaintiff's claim is and the ground upon which it rests." Conley v. Gibson, 355 U.S. 41, 47 (1957). In this case, no discernible claim is apparent from the complaint, and it does not give fair notice to the defendants regarding the grounds upon which the plaintiff's claims rest. We also strongly suspect at least one defendant was not properly served.
Jungle Democracy's appeal is as unintelligible as its complaint and also states no grounds for relief. We agree with the district court that Jungle Democracy's complaint fails to meet the "short and plain" requirements of Rule 8(a). Because Jungle Democracy failed to raise any nonfrivolous argument in support of its appeal, see McIntosh v. U.S. Parole Comm'n, 115 F.3d 809, 812 (10th Cir. 1997), we also deny his Motion for Leave to Proceed In Forma Pauperis.
The Plaintiff's Motion for Leave to Proceed In Forma Pauperis is DENIED, and the appeal is DISMISSED.
Entered for the Court,
Michael W. McConnell
*.After examining the briefs and appellate record, this panel has determined unanimously that oral argument would not materially assist in the determination of this appeal. See Fed. R. App. P. 34(a)(2); 10th Cir. R. 34.1(G). This case is therefore submitted without oral argument. This order and judgment is not binding precedent, except under the doctrines of law of the case, res judicata, and collateral estoppel. The court generally disfavors the citation of orders and judgments; nevertheless, an order and judgment may be cited under the terms and conditions of 10th Cir. R. 36.3.
