In re Demos, 500 U.S. 16 (1991)

In re Demos

No. 90-7225

Decided April 29, 1991*

500 U.S. 16

Syllabus

Pro se petitioner Demos filed petitions for a writ of certiorari, a writ of habeas corpus, and a writ of mandamus, all seeking relief from a single lower court order. He has made 32 in forma pauperis filings in this Court since the October, 1988, Term began.

Held:

1. Demos' petition for a writ of certiorari is denied.

2. Demos is denied leave to proceed in forma pauperis in the instant, and all future, petitions for extraordinary relief. His method of seeking relief here -- filing three petitions for relief from a single order below -- could only be calculated to disrupt the orderly consideration of cases. The Clerk is directed not to accept any further petitions from Demos for extraordinary relief unless he pays the docketing fee required by this Court's Rule 38(a) and submits his petitions in compliance with Rule 33.

No. 90-7226, certiorari denied; Nos. 90-7225 and 90-7296, motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis denied.
