The Move Organization brings this civil rights action against Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Malmed, the City of Philadelphia, and the State of Pennsylvania over Judge Malmed's conduct of a trial which resulted in the conviction of nine Move members. The complaint is utterly frivolous, inter alia, because: (1) Judge Malmed has absolute immunity, (2) the state has eleventh-amendment immunity; (3) the only allegations concerning the city and state are that they have "corporate links" to Judge Malmed and enforced judgment; (4) the judgment collectively estops Move.
An appropriate order follows.
AND NOW, this 10th day of January, 1983, it is hereby ORDERED that:
1. The motion to proceed in forma pauperis is DENIED for the reasons given in Move Organization v. United States Department of Justice, Civil Action No. 82-143 (E.D. Pa. Nov., 1982).
2. The complaint is DISMISSED as frivolous because plaintiff lacks standing, see id., and for the reasons given in the accompanying memorandum.
