MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE, COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, *************
Jonathan Lee Riches, an inmate in the Williamsburg Federal Correctional Institution, has submitted a "Notice of Entry of Appearance" in the instant case. As noted in a Memorandum Order by Magistrate Judge J. Gregory Wehrman, "Riches has a long history of vexatious filings in the federal court system, having filed more than two thousand frivolous cases as of June 2008." In re Insurance Local Premium Tax Litigation, Civil Action No. 06-141-DLB, 06-146-DLB (E.D. Ky. September 25, 2008). After being enjoined from filing any future civil actions in the Eastern District of Kentucky in an order by the Hon. Henry R. Wilhoit unless he submits a complaint accompanied by certain procedural safeguards, see, e.g., Riches v. Hughes, Ashland Civil Action No. 08-85, it appears that Riches is now seeking to intervene in multiple cases filed by others in an effort to circumvent Judge Wilhoit's injunction.
