Filed Nonprecedential Disposition PER CURIAM. Bradley has been warned that further frivolous appeals may result in penalties. Bradley III, 842 F.3d at 1290. She disregarded the warning. Two penalties are appropriate. First, by pursing a frivolous court of litigation Bradley has forfeited her privilege of litigating without prepayment of fees (that is, suing in forma pauperis) under 28 U.S.C. §1915. See Martin v. District of Columbia Court of Appeals, 506 U.S. 1 (1992). Second, she is fined $1,000 and an order under Support Systems International, Inc. v. Mack, 45 F.3d 185, 186 (7th Cir. 1995). Until she pays that fine she is barred from filing papers in any federal court within this circuit except for the defense of criminal cases or applications for writs of habeas corpus. Bradley may submit to this court, no earlier than two years from the date of this order, a motion to modify or rescind this order. And even if she pays the $1,000 fine, she must pay all required fees in her future cases. (That is two say, these two penalties are cumulative, not alternative.) The district court's judgment is AFFIRMED. The sanctions mentioned will be entered as separate orders. Frank H. Easterbrook, Circuit Judge; Daniel A. Manion, Circuit Judge and Diane S. Sykes, Circuit Judge. [6911579-1] [6911579] [17-2923]
