Court: Woman Was Frivolous Litigator

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/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: Don't you wish there was a way to rid the court system of about half its frivolous lawsuits?
