Law School Litigant Can't Stop Suing Law Schools After Flunking Out
Gregory Langadinos has been a law student for many years but he's become more famous as a law school litigant than as an attorney. Which makes sense since he never graduated and isn't admitted to practice.
Langadinos first enrolled at Southern New England School of Law (now the University of Massachusetts School of Law). He promptly flunked out and then enrolled at Touro Law School in New York. When he flunked out there, he applied for readmission to his original school.
The problem for the law schools is that when things go wrong for Langadinos, he sues.
He sued UMass when he first flunked out and won a judgment although the record on that case is sealed, reports The Boston Globe.
When he flunked out of Touro Law School he sued them too for failing to accommodate his attention deficit disorder, reports Long Island Business News. But he lost that case and tried to go to back to UMass. When the new dean wouldn't admit him, Langadinos sued him for discrimination.
Seeing a pattern here?
Law schools aren't Langadinos's only target. He's sued American Airlines, a lawyer who asked him for his mailing address to serve court documents, and even his own father.
His lawsuits aren't only numerous, they're also frivolous. In his most recent suit against UMass there's evidence that he doctored affidavits and encouraged others to slur the school's dean in order to win his case.
Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Fahey was so disgusted by his actions she not only dismissed the case against UMass, she also banned Langadinos from further litigation.
Before filing another lawsuit in the state he'll have to get court approval, reports The Boston Globe.
At this rate, he'll may never be admitted to the Massachusetts Bar even if he manages to graduate from a law school and pass the bar exam.
