We play it where that person just doesn't play objectives any more. I haven't
seen an official ruling on this though.

From the SRTCG Q&A:
Number of Objectives:
Q1: How many Objectives in a legal deck? And if its not exactly 6, why not? The
rules specify 6, but I've seen many 'unofficial' references to that being a
A1: 6 is the minimum. You can have as many as you want. Sucker Run's don't
count toward the minimum # of Objectives in your pile. You can have up to 4 of
each Objective card in your pile.
Hope this helps.
