Yeah that one is great too. He has a long running suit against Best Buy for a bait and switch I think he also protested outside of it for a few days.
In his civil rights cases based on his own criminal issues he cited several Iron Maiden song lyrics and album art in his briefing. The guy is maybe not well so it’s sort of depressing but i bet he gets way more views on his YouTube/twitch due to all this.

The Circuit Court shows remarkable restraint not naming the judge, particularly given who the judge is (Lynn Hughes). They don't even mention that he was the same judge at issue in McCoy
We have a sense of déjá vu. The district court’s discovery restrictions
in the instant cases are strikingly similar to those in McCoy. And “[a]lthough
the district court is customarily accorded wide discretion in handling
discovery matters, we will not uphold a ruling which has failed to adhere to
the liberal spirit of the Rules.” Coughlin v. Lee, 946 F.2d 1152, 1159 (5th Cir.
1991). As in McCoy, the district judge here permitted only Miller’s
deposition to be taken before summary judgment briefing and argument—
and then actually participated in the deposition. By contrast, the court
repeatedly denied Miller the opportunity to depose any witnesses, relenting
only after summary judgment briefing was complete to allow Miller one
deposition, of UHD’s Dean Fulton. And that deposition was limited to “two
hours, at most.”

Ha, I saw that opinion and I wondered if it was the same judge as in McCoy.
