Idaho Supreme Court upholds judge’s ‘vexatious litigator’ decision

Here's a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Supreme Court is standing by a state judge who two years ago deemed a Malad City woman a vexatious litigant for filing too many frivolous lawsuits. The justices agreed Tuesday that the judge acted appropriately in finding that Holli Lundahl Telford meets the legal criteria for taking action against people who clog the courts with nuisance cases. Telford was declared a vexatious litigant in 2011 by 6th District Judge David Nye. Telford has also earned that designation in federal appeals courts, Utah, Montana and California. In its ruling, the high court ruled Nye did not abuse his discretion in imposing vexatious litigant status on Telford. Telford is the first person in Idaho to challenge Idaho's law. She did not immediately return messages left Tuesday by The Associated Press.
