A 47-year-old woman from San Diego just can’t get enough lawsuits to satisfy her.
Pamela Stickler has filed nearly 80 lawsuits in just the last two decades. The San Diego resident filed against Bill Clinton, the Marriott Hotel, the Internal Revenue Service, average citizens, and many more. The list goes on and on.
Although a majority of her lawsuits have been thrown out, it can get rather expensive.
“You would have to hire an attorney, and the attorney would have to spend his or her time defending this frivolous lawsuit. It could cost thousands, tens of thousands of dollars, and in certain instances even more,” said Jonathan Brenner, who is a legal analyst.
According to San Diego 6 News, the woman’s name was added to what California calls the “Vexatious Litigants List." Yahoo! News notes that the list includes names of thousands of people who have repeatedly filed unreasonable claims.
Although Stickler was added to the list, that didn’t stop her from filing suits. She has delivered at least 10 administration claims to cities by hand since then. According to the city clerks of San Diego, most of the claims the woman has filed are for her being asked to leave somewhere without a valid reason or for her being falsely accused.
