Wednesday, May 2, 2007Senior Judicial Fellow Judge John FaderThe Daily Record
– For years, non-lawyer Arthur Robinson has filed dozens of lawsuits completely frivolous, his critics say against major banks and other businesses. At a sanctions hearing Tuesday, the chief judge of the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland signed an order agreed to by Robinson and counsel for one of the companies he sued. The order enjoins Robinson, who files all of his suits pro se, representing himself, from bringing more suits in district court unless he is represented by counsel or gets the judge’s permission. It also requires Robinson to disclose past cases if he files further suits and subjects him to fines for future frivolous suits. John Fader II, JD, senior judicial fellow and lecturer at the School of Law and retired Baltimore County Circuit Court judge, said he believes the judge’s actions were rare but warranted. Fader said that in 26 years on the bench, he can only remember one instance where he enjoined someone from filing any state court suits without his permission.
