W.G. Wells v. Americantex, Inc.

Subsequent Opinion Declaring Litigant [William G. Wells] Vexatious


Our client is the assignee of a money judgment. In the course of enforcing judgment, the judgment debtors William G. Wells (an individual) and Valuation Systems (a Nevada corporation) brought a motion to "strike" and "vacate" the assignment, etc. When the trial court denied the judgment debtors' motion, they appealed the decision. During the appeal, the Second District Court of Appeal (2DCA) issued an order to show cause (OSC) against William G. Wells why he should not be declared a vexatious litigant. After Mr. Wells filed his opposition papers and the matter was heard, 2DCA issued this opinion declaring Mr. Wells a vexatious litigant and prohibiting Mr. Wells from filing any new litigation unless he obtains a prefiling order, pursuant to Section 391.7 of the California Code of Civil Procedure.
