Adding to the dozen or so suits she's filled in the past few years, Amy Modica has now lashed out against Jefferson County Judge Ronald Walker by naming him as a defendant in her latest lawsuit.
And what exactly was Judge Walker's litigious offense?
According to Modica's petition, filed June 11, "Mr. Walker and his secretary caused personal injury by disallowing me to fill out paperwork to have my mother committed ...for help and possible hypnotic trance."
"This is sick minded behaviors from Judge Ronald Walker," Modica says in her suit. "As a result of all the harm caused, the wrong person was put in lock down today."
Modica's 54-page suit goes on to describe an altercation between her mother and daughter, which ended when the Beaumont Police Department responded to a 911 call and arrested Modica's daughter.
The BPD, L.T. Bowls, the city of Beaumont and Jefferson County are also named as defendants in the suit.
Modica filed several similar suits in the past two years.
In November 2008, the Southeast Texas Record reported that Modica filed a pro se suit against former President George W. Bush and the Beaumont Housing Authority for forcing her into homelessness.
Since that first suit, Modica has filed around seven more complaints against various individuals and organizations.
On April 3, 2009, Modica filed a suit against Beaumont Bone and Joint Institute, a doctor, and one invisible man – in which she alleged that she was "forced to walk at length" to a bus stop and board a non-handicapped bus to reach Beaumont Bone and Joint, where she had an appointment.
The previous suits have been dismissed.
