You need to have the court enter an order that any future claims are dismissed with prejudice which means she cannot bring the same claim to be heard again. If the court dismisses the claim without prejudice this allows her to keep bringing the claim. "with prejudice" is the key. You would file a motion to dismiss "with prejudice" and explain to the jduge that it is the same claim she is bringing over and over.
