Suffice it to say, at the time that this became publicized, I agreed whole-heartedly with EDS’s take (as I said at the time (see the link to douchebag)).
My favorite part is footnote 6, where the court explains why it allowed the defendants to introduce a Virginia Court of Appeals opinion about this guy’s divorce (which might otherwise have been irrelevant).
This shmuck represents himself and gets to court as often and for as long as he possibly can. Like this quote from footnote 5:
“delayed unnecessarily by the plaintiff’s disproportionate approach to the discovery process and by the plaintiff’s active but largely unsuccessful motions practice.”
A guy like this can continue to wreak that kind of havoc because he’s an attorney and represent himself. For that reason, he should be disbarred, so he can’t represent himself (or anyone) like this anymore. And his next lawyer can smack him in the head next time he tries some crap like this.
