Judge tells “vexatious litigant” she’s no longer welcome in court

A judge in Ontario, Canada, has told a woman known for filing frequent lawsuits that she’s no longer welcome in court.

One-time beauty queen, Althea Reyes, has been declared “a vexatious litigant” for her abuse of the court’s process and waste of judicial and public resources.

According to the Toronto Star, Reyes has sued at least 30 people, companies, and organizations since 2011, including men she’s had relationships with, a school board, bank employees, a pawn shop, a dry cleaner, and lawyers who opposed her in court.

Even complete strangers aren’t safe.

She sued one of those, too.

She even tried to sue the Toronto Sun to stop a journalist covering her story from contacting her.

The “vexatious litigate” designation means Reyes now needs to seek the court’s permission before filing any lawsuits.
