Click here for "mother may I" filing mentioned in headline.
Peter Rickmyer is a Level Three Sex Offender who (incredibly) has been wanted on a "non-extraditable" warrant out of Oklahoma since Kurt Cobain was signed up with Sub Pop records and nobody knew what Teen Spirit smelled like. Frolicking around as free as you please in defiance of law, morality and social norms, Rickmyer has repeatedly filed baseless harassing lawsuits against various individuals and entities, including this blog. He has been declared a "frivolous litigant" in state court (but not yet in federal court) who isn't allowed to make filings on his own, pro se.
Yet THAT didn't stop Rickmyer from making another filing earlier this month...
The document is linked above and, in summary, Rickmyer requests the prohibition to be removed so he can file his previous tidal wave of frivolous litigation. He pleads changed circumstances and asks for a hearing date on April Fools Day. And then, as though to extend the running joke, he makes the following argument:
"I have not matched the volume of frivolous litigation that has prompted the courts to impose a blanket restriction on my access to the (scribble mark) courts for any reason."
Rickmyer then cites the federal court case (In Re McDonald, 489 US 180 if the citation is accurate) which establishes the ALL TIME RECORD for frivolous litigation; 73 separate filings with the court, 4 appeals, 33 petitions for cert, 19 petitions for extraordinary writs, 7 applications for stays and other injunctive relief, and 10 petitions for rehearing (if Rickmyer's summary is correct).
It must be a little discouraging for this sex offender to know it's unlikely he will ever shatter the all-time record but, my word, look at the obstacles in Rickmyer's path. Surely he holds an all time record in the bantam weight WANTED FELON RUNNING LOOSE YET MAKING FRIVOLOUS COURT FILINGS division?
Rickmyer's filing was made March 24 and rejected as frivolous on its face by March 27.
USA Today recently wrote an article, click here, about the national problem of wanted felons who are not being pursued or picked up by the states which issued the warrants.
