Plaintiff Barred “For Life” from Filing Lawsuits Without Court Permission

The plaintiff has filed 34 federal civil lawsuits, 17 of which have been dismissed as frivolous; two are proceeding to trial; others have been dismissed for failure to prosecute or to comply with court orders. This lawsuit largely repeats allegations that have been made in other pending or previous lawsuits. The plaintiff is "barred for life" from filing any suit in this court or elsewhere if it is removable or transferable to this court without first obtaining written permission from a district or circuit judge.

The failure to provide the plaintiff with large numbers of pre-printed complaint forms immediately did not deny him access to the courts. See: Brinson v. McKeeman, 992 F.Supp. 897 (W.D.Tex. 1997).
