Woodson v. State

The Supreme Court directed the clerk of court to reject any future pleadings or other requests for relief submitted by Petitioner that pertained to two particular cases unless such filings were signed by a member in good standing of The Florida Bar. In addition, the Court found that the petition filed by Petitioner in this case was a frivolous proceeding brought before the Court by a state prisoner. Here, Petitioner, an inmate in state custody, filed a pro se petition to invoke the Supreme Court’s all writs jurisdiction. The Supreme Court dismissed the petition and expressly retained jurisdiction to pursue possible sanctions against him. The Supreme Court sanctioned Petitioner, who abused the judicial process and burdened the Court’s limited resources with repeated requests that were either frivolous or devoid of merit.
