The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals has barred a woman from filing any new civil lawsuits or renewing old ones anywhere in the circuit until she pays fines various courts have already levied.
Recent case: Susan Hinds has been involved in litigation against a host of companies she claims either didn’t hire her or fired her because of sex discrimination. The only problem with her many cases: She had never been hired or even applied for work with any of the companies she sued.
The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ordered her to pay the attorneys’ fees for the companies that had to defend themselves against her baseless charges. The court also said she can’t file any papers in old or new lawsuits until the money has been paid. (Hinds v. Enhanced Business Reporting Consortium, Inc., No. 10-3457, 7th Cir., 2011)
