Abstract

Querulants are a considerable problem for the legal system. Although they do not break the law at first, they want to enforce their point of view in legal conflicts with their environment at any cost. If they cannot win their case in court, they often prove to be uncontrollable and continue their fight no matter what it takes, sometimes until their financial means are exhausted. Because they often have a paranoid personality structure, they then feel victimised by corrupt judges and the escalation spiral tends to go on without end. In extreme cases, this may even lead to massive violent actions against their opponents. The author presents a case report of such a deadly escalation.
