Good news: Former employees can’t just keep filing lawsuits

Here’s some encouraging news for employers. Courts are cracking down on employees who file seemingly never-ending successions of lawsuits. They’re dismissing such suits fast.

But a court can do so only if you let it know that the former employee has already filed (and lost or won) a previous round of litigation.

Recent case:
Alan Campbell never returned to work after he got a call from a psychiatric clinic informing him that one of his co-workers wanted to kill him.

Campbell filed for and got workers’ compensation benefits. He then filed suit in a Los Angeles court alleging his former employer hadn’t maintained a safe workplace. He lost that case.

He followed up with a federal lawsuit based on the same facts. The court tossed out the case because he had already lost the other case. (Campbell v. City of Los Angeles, No. 08-6454, CD CA, 2009)
