Man Declared 'Vexatious Litigant' After 24 years and 120 Lawsuits

The National Post Reported that a man who filed 120 lawsuits over 24 years has exhausted his opportunities to litigate the case.
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.
This is the bizarre legacy of Mr. Direk’s obsessive campaign to sate his ever-widening feeling of injustice over his car crash, a case that he actually won.
We respect the rights of members of the public to bring proceedings and to be heard, but where members of the public do not respect the procedures and protections the court offers, the rights of others are adversely affected.
