Ooh, a New Vexatious Litigant Wingnut

Ooh, a New Vexatious Litigant Wingnut August 28, 2018

Jeff Shallit called my attention to a guy named Robert Modrall, a vexatious litigant — someone who continually files frivolous and malicious lawsuits — and weapons grade right wing crackpot. Here’s a perfect example, a suit he filed, in which he represented himself (of course), against a federal judge. You can read the magistrate judge’s recommendation for dismissal here.

He claims that every judge in Tennessee is corrupt and part of a huge drug trafficking ring. Oh, and Obama was part of it too. Because of course he is. And they’re all conspiring against him. He sued every federal judge in the Eastern District of Tennessee, demanding “$1 billion, a Presidential Medal of Freedom with Distinction, and a Nobel Peace Prize.” His complaints, and there are a ton of them, contain no evidence whatsoever, just allegations. They all end up getting dismissed, of course.

In 2016, a judge finally dismissed one of his cases with prejudice and put him on notice that any further filings will be subject to summary dismissal. It’s long past time to declare this crackpot a vexatious litigant and deny him any right to file lawsuits, ever, for any reason. This guy lost touch with reality a long, long time ago. On his Facebook page, he claims that Michelle Obama was born a man and is transgender (with no evidence, of course). He shares memes like this:

I mean, seriously, the hair club for men? But this isn’t satire, he’s dead serious.

"Different conspiracy. But don't worry, there's always room for one more in the crackpot."
