RANDALL B. HOFLAND
Plaintiff RANDALL B HOFLAND represented by RANDALL B HOFLAND, PRO SE
John A. Woodcock, Jr., Chief U.S. District Judge
From 2009 to 2012, Randall B. Hofland filed multiple civil actions in this Court, none of them meritorious. As a result of his persistent frivolous filings and his inability to obey the simplest orders of the Court despite repeated warnings, on January 18, 2012, the Court issued a Cok order, barring Mr. Hofland from making any further filings with this Court without first obtaining specific permission to do so from this Court. Hofland v. LaHaye, No. 1:09-cv-00172-JAW, Order on Recommended Decisions at 12 (ECF No. 103).
Things went quiet for quite a while. Until September 25, 2014, when the Court received a new pleading entitled, “Plaintiff’s Motion to Vacate Dismissals Pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 60(b)(1)(3)(6)” in which he alleges among other things “a broader pattern of racketeering in Maine’s Judicial Branch involving judges, lawyers, witnesses, and law enforcement.” Pl.’s Mot. at 3. Mr. Hofland ignored the Court’s Order dated January 12, 2012 and failed to obtain this Court’s permission to make such a filing. To the extent the recent pleading could be construed as such a prefiling motion, the Court has reviewed it and deems it frivolous.
Consistent with its January 12, 2012 Order, the Court ORDERS the Clerk not to file Mr. Hofland’s recent filings and instead to return them to him immediately.
