Frequent filer gets sanctioned by Judge Moon

In Thurston v. Melton, Judge Moon of the W.D. Va. ordered Rule 11 sanctions against a pro se litigant, noting that the same plaintiff had previously filed 25 lawsuits, including 12 raising the same claims as in this case. The Court imposed sanctions of $500 and entered a pre-filing injunction against the plaintiff with respect to future cases.
