Whatever happened to . . .

Seaman Apprentice Kevin Razzoli?  Well those of us with clients in confinement know they have a lot of time to ponder their cases.  He was sentenced to 25 years confinement in 1987 for attempted murder.  You’d think he’d  be on parole by now.  But  . . .  The lesson for current clients is that to get parole one point is to have a good prison record.

So, in 1989, the Navy-Marine Corps Court of Military Review affirmed his conviction and sentence in a short per curiam opinion addressing his speedy trial issue.  United States v. Razzoli, NMCM 88-1220 (N.M.C.M.R. July 14, 1989), pet. denied 29 M.J. 314 (C.M.A. 1989).

Not satisfied with the results in the military system, he began filing habeas corpus petitions and other lawsuits.  So much so that,

A review of the federal courts’ PACER Case Locator service reveals that Petitioner is a serial filer of habeas corpus petitions in several federal courts. Some of his litigation history was summarized in Razzoli v. U.S. Parole Commission, No. 10-cv-1842, 210 WL 4622178, at *1-3 (E.D.N.Y. Nov. 5, 2010). He also has filed over twenty civil rights lawsuits against federal law enforcement agencies and officers since his military conviction for attempted murder in 1987. See, e.g., Razzoli v. City of New York, 08-cv-4586 (S.D.N.Y.), Order of Dismissal, dated May 19, 2008, at 7-8 (noting that this was the plaintiff’s fourth complaint since February 2005, the judge stated: "I hereby warn plaintiff that the further filing of non-meritorious cases may result in the issuance of an Order barring plaintiff from filing any further actions without prior leave of the Court.").

Razzoli v. U. S. Parole Commission, et al., Civ. Action 11-7227, n.1  (DC, NJ Jan., 11, 2012).  In this most recent litigation the petition was rejected for failure to pay the $5.00 filing fee or present an acceptable request to proceed in forma pauperis.  The court indicated that his petition was “unintelligible as to the grounds,” and that any new one should “clearly stat[e] the grounds.”
