The Need for Sua Sponte Judicial Review Laws For Pro Se Litigants’ Lawsuits

“This website addresses the problem of meritless, abusive lawsuits filed by self-represented / pro se litigants and calls for legislative action that requires judges to practice sua sponte judicial review of all pro se litigants’ lawsuits.

This website also addresses the problem of religious frauds and various disturbing and harmful tactics that religious frauds use against their victims – including filing meritless, abusive lawsuits.

The matters discussed in this website involve subjects which merit constitutionally protected public scrutiny, and this website provides documentation, commentary and opinion on matters of public concern.”

Abusive In Forma Pauperis Pro Se Litigants Victimize Everyone

Abusive In Forma Pauperis Pro Se Litigants Victimize Everyone

These draining, abusive pro se lawsuits damage innocent people’s reputations, often cause prolonged emotional trauma, and many times result in lifelong irreparable financial damage.  What is also damaging to our state and federal budget expenditures is the fact that many of these pro se litigants file their baseless, abusive lawsuits against their victims in forma pauperis in which case you, the taxpayer, foot the bill to pay all of the pro se litigants’ court filing fees when they claim that they are too poor to pay those fees out of their own pockets.  Every taxpayer should be outraged at this fact.  Every fiscally concerned governor and state and federal legislator should also be outraged and demonstrate that outrage by passing into law sua sponte judicial review requirements and security bond requirements for all pro se litigants’ lawsuits with the necessary injunctions in place to put a stop to this financially damaging abuse of our courts.  Pro se litigants, especially those filing in forma pauperis, who file meritless, abusive / vexatious lawsuits victimize everyone!  Again, there is simply no constitutional justification for allowing this very lopsided judicial process that completely favors the pro se litigant to the extreme detriment of innocent defendants and court staff safety – and of every taxpayer in the case of in forma pauperis pro se plaintiffs. 

This website is published with the intent to urge victims of abusive / vexatious litigants, victims’ supporters, attorneys and court staff, and every taxpayer to contact their state’s senators and representatives, especially the members of their state’s judiciary committees, to urge them to enact into law the proposed bill found in this website or a similar bill aimed at codifying the earlier common practice of sua sponte judicial review of lawsuits filed by pro se litigants.  (Federal courts generally follow the laws enacted in the state in which they exist.)  Laws need to be enacted that prevent damage being done to innocent victims of abusive / vexatious lawsuits filed by pro se litigants.  Preventative laws, such as the bill proposed below, would wrest power from stalkers-through-the-courts and prevent the financial damage that innocent victims incur from having to pay expensive legal fees to defend their innocence.
