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.”

Proposed Bills for 2021 TN Legislature Addressing Problem of Pro Se Plaintiffs

Proposed Bills for 2021 TN Legislature Addressing Problem of Pro Se Plaintiffs

As of January, 2021 the two bills my husband Scott Buchanan and I, Paulette Buchanan, crafted addressing the problem of abusive pro se plaintiffs have been proposed by our state representative Scotty Campbell for the 2021 legislative session in Tennessee.  The two bills are HB0337 (SB0866) and HB0186 (SB0865).  

We call on Tennessee residents, and especially victims of abusive pro se plaintiffs, to contact their state senators and representatives and urge them to support these two bills.  

As with any bill, the language can change as the bill is revised and edited in the legislative process.  Many good bills have taken years before they are passed by state legislatures and signed into law by governors.  We are working hard to ensure that these two bills are passed this year and enacted into law.   But if that doesn’t happen this year, we will continue to keep proposing these bills and rallying support for however long it takes to get good sensible laws enacted that stop abusive pro se litigants from weaponizing the courts against their victims.
