Ontario court: man’s 120 lawsuits are enough

by Walter Olson on November 18, 2012

Canada: “It started with a car crash in 1988 that sparked a court case and, last month, three judges suggested it was time to end; in between, Ural Direk launched more than 120 lawsuits, filed thousands of pages of documents, filled a trailer full of evidence, sought secret hearings to unveil dark campaigns against him, and linked the outcome of his cases to a Jewish conspiracy.” Mr. Direk prevailed in his original lawsuit, but considered the $34,984 damages awarded unsatisfactory and filed a losing appeal whose ramifications have continued to this day. A judicial panel has now recommended that he be declared a vexatious litigant. [National Post]

The correlation between “Jewish conspiracy” theories of the case and frivolous litigation is high enough that raising the argument should generate an automatic award of vexatious litigant status.
