What is the name of your state? Texas

Hi, I'm in Texas and was curious if there is a maximum number of lawsuits I could have filed within a given timeframe. I am just about the most unlucky person in the world and therefore I have or could have quite a few going on now, but I didn't know if there was a maximum number. If there is I need to be selective about the ones I file.

thanks! :mad:

does that mean there isn't a limit? I was putting together files this past weekend and I have 19 I could legitimately file. A few MIGHT be hard to win, but they are worth filing.

I am not aware of any limit to the number of lawsuits you can file. But if I were on a jury and the defense attorney were allowed to bring out the fact that the plaintiff had 18 other suits pending, it would not cause me to look favorably upon your position.

The federal system and probably some state systems have flags that go up when you file so many lawsuits (and I do not know the number). You will be pegged as the local courthouse nut and have to prove you have a case before you can file it.

What difference does it make if i have any other lawsuits pending? it wouldn't be admissible in court anyways, but why is that a factor? i wouldn't just file frivolous lawsuits for no reason, these are pretty good "winners". even after the 30% my lawyer gets, it is worth doing

Just because you don't think they're friviolous lawsuits, doesn't mean that everyone else would agree.
