Canadian Federal Court bans man for being a serial litigant
Francis Mazhero is not allowed to file any more Federal Court applications without that court's permission, according to a ruling by Justice Danile Tremblay-Lamer.

(...)

Mazhero first sued Yukon's Education Department after he was let go as a consultant. Originally from Zimbabwe, Mazhero accused the department of racial discrimination.

Mazhero went on to file at least six more lawsuits that targeted the Yukon ombudsman, the Yukon Human Rights Commission and others.

"Many of the steps he has taken have been labelled in the past as unmeritorious, without legal foundation, irrelevant and repetitive," the Yukon Court of Appeal stated in a 2002 ruling that dismissed many of his appeals.

Meanwhile, in America, there's a well-known wingnut who's obsessively filed frivolous lawsuits including those regarding Obama's birth certificate - Andy Martin. In 1983, a federal judge from Connecticut imposed permission restrictions on Martin; he's also restricted by New York and Florida courts.

1. We had a goofball like that here in Minny
years ago. Some reichwing kook that sued everything but a ham sandwich for one reason or another. Finally the Chief Judge of the Fourth Judicial District (Mpls area) said that she couldn't file ANYTHING with the court without his prior approval. Oddly enough, she went away.

3. No, it was about 20 years ago
Her mom maybe? :shrug:

She was a legend around the courthouse, and I worked there for a couple of years back in the mid-90s
