State prison inmate files hundreds of lawsuits from behind bars

State prison inmate files hundreds of lawsuits from behind bars | Library@CSNSW | Scoop.it
The Federal court in Tucson has been absolutely flooded with lawsuits. Those suits are not from clashing corporations or government gadflies. Instead, these almost 400 lawsuits come from just one man who is sitting in a prison cell.This inmate's pile of lawsuits could give taxpayers indigestion. Which is exactly what he's claiming in some suits: stomach troubles from prison food. He wants trillions of dollars in damages, but in the meantime, these questionable cases gum-up the courts, and cost taxpayers in legal fees.Dale Maisano is currently serving a 15-year sentence for aggravated assault out of Pinal county.
Right now, he's locked up at the Arizona State Prison on Wilmot Road in Tucson. But he sure stays busy in there. In the past month alone, Maisano has filed dozens of lawsuits. Over the past several years, that number has reached into the hundreds. Maisano has sued Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, State Attorney General Tom Horne, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, and many others.
