Florida Statute 68.093 defines a “Vexatious Litigant” as any person or company that filed at least five or more lawsuits, not including small claims matters, within the previous five year period, without an attorney and without success. So, why does it matter? Well, vexatious litigants can be made to pay more money up front when they file again. And sometimes they are not allowed to file again at all. Moreover, all of these petty, unsuccessful lawsuits clog up an already overcrowded court system.
