Johnson v. Victoria Fire and Casualty Co.

United States District Court, S.D. Ohio, Eastern Division

December 30, 2019

ROBERT W. JOHNSON, Plaintiff,
v.
VICTORIA FIRE AND CASUALTY COMPANY, et al, Defendants.

          Chelsey M. Vascura Magistrate Judge.

          OPINION AND ORDER

          EDMUND A. SARGUS, JR. DISTRICT JUDGE.

         This matter is before the Court for consideration of Plaintiff Robert W. Johnson's ("Plaintiff') Objection (ECF No. 11) to the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation (ECF No. 10). For the reasons that follow, the Court ADOPTS the Report and Recommendation (ECF No. 10) and DISMISSES Plaintiffs Objection (ECF No. 11).

         I.

         Plaintiff, proceeding pro se, recently filed the following four cases in this Court:

1) Johnson v. Nationwide Insurance, No. 2:19-cv-110 (S.D. Ohio Mar. 26, 2019);
2) Johnson v. Coe, No. 2:19-cv-2428 (S.D. Ohio June 10, 2019);
3) Johnson v. Smith, No. 2:19-cv-2490 (S.D. Ohio June 14, 2019); and
4) Johnson v. Abel, No. 2:19-cv-2865 (S.D. Ohio June 27, 2019).

         All of Plaintiffs claims in these four cases arose out of a January 2017 car accident, in which Plaintiff alleged he sustained injuries. The Court dismissed all four cases for failure to state a claim pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e). In addition, the Court declared plaintiff a vexatious litigator and enjoined him from filing any new actions without first (a) submitting a certification from an attorney who is licensed to practice in this Court or the state of Ohio, stating that there is a good faith basis for the claims Plaintiff seeks to assert; or (b) tendering a proposed complaint for review by the Court prior to the actual filing of the Complaint in the Court's docketing system. (See Johnson v. Abel, No. 2:19-cv-2865 (S.D. Ohio June 27, 2009), ECF No. 8.)

         In the instant case, Plaintiff asserts a claim against Victoria Fire & Casualty Company and Nationwide Insurance: Cambridge Insurance Group LLC ("Defendants"). (Compl. at 2, ECF No. 1.) The case arises out of a January 2017 car accident. (See Id. at 7-8.) Plaintiff alleges he is permanently injured and disabled. (Id. at 8.) Plaintiff offers no specific allegations against Defendants. Plaintiff asks for lost wages in the amount of one million dollars and punitive damages in the amount of one hundred million dollars. (Id. at 9.)

         This case was transferred to this Court from the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. The transfer order observed that this case relates to the same January 2017 car accident as Plaintiffs previously filed cases in this Court. (ECF No. 5.)

         Plaintiff, proceeding without counsel, filed a Motion for Leave to Proceed in forma pauperis. (ECF No. 4.) The Court granted his request to proceed in forma pauperis in accordance with 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(b). (Order & R. & R., ECF No. 10 [hereinafter R. & R.].) The Magistrate Judge concurrently issued a Report and Recommendation, which recommended dismissing the action for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(b). (Id.) Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. ยง 636(b)(1), ...
