The opinion of the court was delivered by: Richard Mills, District Judge:

OPINION

There are some things that must give way to the shortness of life.

These lawsuits meet that standard in spades.

The plaintiff, Brenda Pusch, has submitted twelve more civil rights complaints under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and seeks leave to proceed in forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915.

For the reasons hereafter, the petitions in each case will be denied, and each complaint will be dismissed for failure to state a claim. Furthermore, by this ruling the court enjoins the plaintiff from filing any further actions, pleadings or motions unless she complies with the requirements set forth in this order.

It has become plain that steps must be taken to alleviate the enormous burdens placed on the court and its staff by the plaintiff. She filed eight pro se civil rights actions in the two years prior to initiating the twelve lawsuits currently under consideration. The plaintiff sought leave to proceed in forma pauperis in each case; without exception, the cases were dismissed as wholly frivolous.

A brief summary of the plaintiff's lawsuits to date follows:

(1) In Pusch v. State of Illinois, Case Number 90-3217, the plaintiff attempted to sue the State of Illinois, as well as judges, lawyers and a defendant in a criminal action, because the plaintiff was removed from the courtroom for disrupting the proceedings.

(2) In Pusch v. State Journal Register, Case Number 90-3285, the plaintiff sought to sue a newspaper for its failure to "spread the word" regarding the plaintiff's status as the "third party of the Holy Trinity" and her purported crucifixion in Los Angeles.

(3) In Pusch v. Horace Mann Insurance Co., Case Number 90-3286, the plaintiff sued her former employer for allegedly discriminatory hiring practices. The plaintiff indicated that the insurance company refused to rehire her after the plaintiff had a nervous breakdown and left Illinois.

(4) In Pusch v. U.S. Marshal, Case Number 92-3311, the plaintiff sued U.S. Marshals and Springfield public servants for failing to help her organize an effort to assist Texas flood victims in January 1992.

(5) In Pusch v. Horace Mann Insurance Co., Case Number 92-3313, the plaintiff again sued her former employer for failing to rehire the plaintiff after she resigned from her position and moved to another state.

(6) In Pusch v. U.S. Surgeon General, Case Number 92-3314, the plaintiff sued the U.S. Surgeon General and the federal government for discriminating against smokers; the plaintiff objected to smoking bans in certain hospitals and public buildings.

(7) In Pusch v. Mental Health Center, et al., Case Number 92-3315, the plaintiff sued her mother and various local and out-of-state health care providers for subjecting her to "cruel and unusual punishment." The plaintiff maintained that she was "tricked" into undergoing ...
