Appeals (to Supreme Court): Sanctions (appellate)

Grenz v. Fire & Casualty of Connecticut [2/14/01] 2001 MT 8 In response to "seemingly endless stream of litigation that has resulted in multiple appeals to this Court and innumerable proceedings in the Workers' Compensation Court," workers' compensation claimant acting pro se on appeal to Supreme Court is sanctioned under Rule 32, M.R.App.P. for filing appeal "without substantial or reasonable grounds." Claimant's present claim was essentially reargument on issues previously resolved, including whether insurer had duty to pursue claimant's claim for him. Monetary sanction of $1,000 ordered. Claimant enjoined from filing any further civil appeals until sanction is paid.
