Undeterred, Snelling says he plans to petition the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the case.
Court records show that Snelling has won judgments of at least $23,067. The court's database, however, does not include many of his cases, and Snelling says he doesn't keep track of his win-loss record.
Describing himself as "self-made," Snelling has no other form of employment but denies that lawsuits make up his livelihood.
"A judgment and getting money is two different things," he contends. "I ain't got a penny. These people do their little dirt [to me], and then they try to run off and hide."
So why does Lonnie Snelling persist?
"Because I'm not a quitter," says Snelling. "I hope that somewhere down the line these rights I'm supposed to have will be granted."
With that, Snelling must dash off to a car-repair shop, claiming that the evening before a young man with a pellet gun shattered one of his windows.
"I don't bother anyone," he concludes. "But when someone bothers me, they don't get out of it easily."
