Court says no more to inmate who has filed 108 appeals

CARSON CITY — The Nevada Supreme Court says it will no longer accept appeals from a prison inmate deemed a “vexatious litigant” unless he pays the associated court fees.

Percy Lavae Bacon, an inmate at the Southern Desert Correctional Center, has submitted 108 appeals with the court, officials said.

In February, the court said its “limited resources are not well spent in reviewing and deciding frivolous petitions and appeals.”

The court said it cannot impose a fine against Bacon, serving an 18-year burglary sentence, because he has no money to pay.
