On July 11, 2019, U.S. Senior District Judge David G. Larimer dismissed three related cases by a pro se litigant well known to the court. Malcolm v. Assn. of Supervisors & Adm’rs of Rochester, No. 17-CV-6878L, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 115575 (W.D.N.Y. July 11, 2019) (Malcolm I), Malcolm v. Rochester City Sch. Dist., No. 17-CV-6873-DGL, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 115583 (W.D.N.Y. July 11, 2019) (Malcolm II), and Curry-Malcolm v. Rochester City Sch. Dist., No. 18-CV-6450L, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 115584 (W.D.N.Y. July 11, 2019) (Malcolm III). This batch of claims arose out of the pro se plaintiff’s employment with her current employer. This was not, however, the first employer plaintiff sued. She had an established pattern of such litigation which preceded Judge Larimer’s determination that the court would not tolerate duplicative, burdensome and unnecessary lawsuits and his imposition of sanctions on plaintiff for her “harassing tactics.” He noted that although pro se litigants are entitled to some accommodation, plaintiff has abused that position repeatedly. Malcolm I, No. 17-CV-6878L, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 115575, at *3.
