Before POSNER, ROVNER, and WOOD, Circuit Judges.

Meanith Huon is a lawyer rep-resenting himself in this appeal. After he was fired from his job as an associate at Johnson & Bell, he initiated two lawsuits against the firm and three of its other attorneys. He filed his first action in state court, asserting state-law claims of defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress resulting from allegedly damaging annual performance evaluations. Huon’s second suit was filed in federal court after his state case had been dismissed and was pending on appeal. In his federal suit Huon brought claims under Title VII,42 U.S.C. § 2000e, and 42 U.S.C. § 1981 for discrimination on the basis of race and national origin, alleging that he was treated less favorably than white employees because he did not receive the same employment benefits, assignments, salary, or opportunity for probation before his discharge. Huon also threw in a supplemental state-law claim for tortious interference with a prospective economic advantage.
