In Re Complaint of Judicial Misconduct (9th Cir. - Dec. 10, 2008)

There's more than one way to get your name in the Federal Reporter. For example, you can be an attorney and file a frivolous complaint of judicial misconduct. To which the Ninth Circuit will respond by (1) expressly admonishing you in a public forum, and (2) entering a prefiling order against you.

In short, if you waste our time -- the time of ten judges, I might add -- we'll make you look bad. Or at least we'll let everyone know how bad you look, Joseph Nascimento.

P.S. - Oh, yeah. We'll also alert the State Bar of Montana.

P.P.S. - A little research reveals that Mr. Nascimento may not be as adversely affected by the publicity as I might have initially thought, since he's (1) already pretty public about his (somewhat paranoid) allegations, and (2) is already indefinitely suspended from the practice of law.
