The Florida Supreme Court has issued a decision instructing its Clerk to reject any future filings that challenge a disbarred attorney's disciplinary proceedings unless signed by a bar member in good standing.
The court stated that "[the attorney] is not being denied access to the courts; that access is simply being limited due to his abusiveness."
After a disbarment recommendation of a referee, the respondent "submitted over 120 filings with [the] Court, the bulk of which were repetitive and meritless." He also had failed to file a timely merits brief.
