Hello, my brakes have a issue with the Piston leaking fluid all over the place, they seized up. Then I took the caliper off, and the Piston Was leaking fluid. I do not need the rear brakes, and was wondering if it would be possible to cap the line off and call it a day.

That's not a wise idea. Your rear brakes are important to keep control of the vehicle. Calipers are pretty cheap on ebay.

Really, it's a temporary fix, I appreciate your concern though, until I can get the parts, how could I do it?

Depends on the line fitting - if it's a banjo fitting just put a solid bolt with a nut and 2 copper washers through the fitting and tighten - if it's an inverted flare, go a automotive supply and get a cap to dead end it into.
