ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A federal judge has told a woman who sued 99 Albuquerque businesses that her lawsuits are being thrown out and she must pay $40,000 for the court’s time.

The judge on Monday also accused Alyssa Carton’s lawyer Sharon Pomeranz of misleading the court during sworn testimony and referred to the controversial group claiming to be advocates for people with disabilities as a carnival shell game.

Carton told KOAT-TV she was recruited online and paid to file the lawsuits against businesses.

The court found every lawsuit to be malicious.

The court has invited the 99 businesses to request sanctions against Pomeranz.
