A Litigious Fellow, He Is

Serial litigator Andy Martin is self-proclaimed corruption fighter and crusader against Obama, Washington Post (September 19, 2012) (AP Story):

CONCORD, N.H. — Andy Martin, a.k.a. Anthony Martin-Trigona, is a legend in his own mind.

He is a self-proclaimed “corruption fighter,” ‘’Internet powerhouse” and “Republican foreign policy expert.”
He is currently trying to get a New Hampshire judge to undo the sale of The Balsams grand hotel and appoint a receiver to reopen it immediately. He has volunteered his services to be that receiver.

The 66-year-old Martin has twice run for president of the United States and earlier this month apologized to GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney for not endorsing him sooner.

Martin graduated from the University of Illinois Law School in 1973 but was denied admission to the bar because he “lacks the qualities of responsibility, candor, fairness, self-restraint, objectivity and respect for the judicial system,” according to one federal court ruling.
The Chicago Tribune, in a profile of Martin three years ago, said the Illinois Supreme Court — in denying his admission to the bar — also cited a Selective Service report that stated Martin has a “moderately severe character defect manifested by well-documented ideation with a paranoid flavor and grandiose character.” That profile was triggered by a radio ad by Martin — then running in Illinois for U.S. Senate — in which Martin said he had it on “solid rumor” that his opponent was gay.

In Connecticut in 1984, U.S. District Court Judge Jose Cabranes issued an order barring Martin from filing any more lawsuits. The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals — which covers Connecticut, Vermont and New York — upheld the order, calling Martin “perhaps the most prolific litigator in this circuit’s history.”
