Canadian sues Dominican Republic for rain during his Vacation

A Quebec man who has sued the Dominican Republic for bad weather during his vacation has been labeled a “quarrelsome litigant” by a Quebec judge. Bruno Leduc will no longer be authorized to file a lawsuit unless he receives prior authorization from the court. The procedure is applied to those who claims are “at the limit of being rational,” as reported in the Canadian London Free Press.

Court documents state that Leduc filed 70 small claims against people or companies over the past several years. Within three months in 2012, Leduc filed 19 claims. Court of Quebec Justice Diane Quenneville ruled last month that “the court has no hesitation to conclude that Leduc is abusing the justice system.”
