IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS EASTERN DIVISION
February 17, 2011
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, RESPONDENT,
ERNEST MYERS #18545-424, MOVANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Milton I. Shadur Senior United States District Judge
Ernest Myers ("Myers") has continued his campaign of ad hominem attacks on this Court, most recently via a document received in the Clerk's Office on February 15 and captioned "Motion to Vacate and set-aside the January 31, 2011 order denying 2255 rehearing." This Court's numerous memorandum opinions and memorandum opinions and orders have sought to explain the deficiencies in Myers' filings patiently and in detail, but to no avail, so that the most recent (January 31) minute order that he now challenges simply said:
Any effort to stanch the flow of the seemingly endless filings by Ernest Myers ("Myers") brings to mind the classic scene in Disney's Fantasia in which Mickey Mouse, as the Sorcerer's Apprentice, attempts to sweep back the sea with a broom to the tune of Dukas' composition bearing that name. This time no repetition of this Court's several explanations of Myers' disentitlement to relief will be essayed--instead his motion for reconsideration and rehearing is simply denied--this case has been and is closed.
After the entry of that minute order, Myers sought to bring a judicial misconduct complaint against this Court, but that effort was rebuffed in the attached February 9 memorandum from Chief Judge Frank Easterbrook of our Court of Appeals. That memorandum instructed Myers in part that "The court of appeals is the appropriate forum for review of a district judge's rulings," but Myers has apparently not accepted that directive either.
In short, Myers' most recent motion is denied, and he is free to take his grievance to the Court of Appeals. No further filings by Myers will be accepted in this District Court unless the Court of Appeals directs otherwise.
