Mary Cummins Sanctioned by Texas Judge, Ordered to Pay Fees to Attorney Randy Turner

Not long after a California judge found Mary Cummins acted in bad faith a Texas judge found her legal antics in the Lone Star State to be less than acceptable.  First, she tried to get the judge in the Bat World defamation trial recused, seemingly just because she didn’t care for the judgement (no wonder – she has 6.1  million reasons not to like it).  That motion was denied:

Apparently, the language in the denial order wasn’t clear enough for Mary Cummins – she then filed a motion asking the judge to reconsider the very same order.  Perhaps she thought the judge had a change or heart overnight and was suddenly moved by her brilliant legal arguments?  Whatever she was thinking, that motion met with predictable results:

Denied again!  But the best part is this – in the process of denying her initial motion for recusal, the Judge found that Mary Cummins had done something that the court didn’t approve of, ordering her to pay Attorney Randy Turner (whom Mary really dislikes for winning the defamation case against her) $500 under a Rule 18 sanction:

Ouch.  That’s gotta hurt.  It’s an easy bet that she won’t enjoy writing that check.  Of course, immediately after the hearing in which the sanctions were found to be justified, Mary Cummins posted online that the plaintiffs had LOST their motion for sanctions.  Say what?  Guess that wasn’t an accurate representation of the proceedings, now was it?  But then, it’s become quite obvious that Mary just isn’t all that good with the truth…


California Judge Finds Mary Cummins Acted in Bad Faith, Dismisses Claims and Request for Injunction

In an apparent attempt to circumvent venue requirements and have her personal injury case against Bat World heard in a Federal court in California, Mary Cummins tried to add defamation claims to the case.  She claimed that the allegations were different than those presented in her other pending case but the judge wasn’t buying it:

After giving her a second chance to validate her allegations, the judge determined that she was, in fact, simply repeating claims from her other lawsuit:

In other words, nice try, Mary Cummins, but the court isn’t fooled.  Accordingly, the judge noted that the claims were filed in bad faith and dismissed them along with her request for an injunction:

He then transferred the case to Texas, where it seems it should have been filed in the first place:

Just another bad day in court for Mary Cummins.  Perhaps next time she won’t try to outsmart the judge and pull a fast one on the courts.
