(Salt Lake City-AP) -- The Utah Supreme Court is out of patience for Holli Lundahl.
The court says that since 1999, the woman, who is not a lawyer, has filed at least 27 legal actions. They include lawsuits against judges who have ruled against her.
Courts usually give special considerations to those who are pursuing lawsuits without an attorney -- but the Supreme Court ruled yesterday that this treatment is over for Lundahl.
The ruling says it seems she's embroiled herself in more litigation than humanly possible.
From now on, Lundahl won't be able to file suit for free if she violates court rules that prohibit frivolous cases.
The court said, quote, "It is not too much to expect her to strictly abide by the rules governing the appearances of parties before this court."
