This lawsuit is priceless!

It would be a lot less work, because you’ll have only him to sue.

He’s justified in demanding money from me that he hasn’t work for. It’s called Civil Service.
There is nothing civil about theft unless you are on the receiving end.

I was told by someone who had experience with courts that Federal judges especially frown on frivolous lawsuits. If that’s true, this guy could find himself charged with contempt of court.

Actually, it should be Latino dog owner. Who knew that was an occupation?

Too bad it won’t make it far enough to be laughed out of court.

This country definitely needs to adopt a loser pay system for frivolous suits. Right now, if a defendant loses - he pays. Even if a defendant wins, he still has what may be crippling legal costs. The plaintiff, on the other hand generally stands to either win, or at worst, remains in control of when to cut his losses in terms of legal costs. The biggest losers in the present system may well be those who have legitimate suits who are told to take a number in a clogged system.

The plaintiffs need some, "skin in the game," and need to be held to account in terms of defendant legal bills, court costs, etc. if their suit is found to be frivolous.

The insurance companies will pony up something or other. Torts are a thriving American business enterprise.

Every lawyer in New York will want to join in on this suit, judges too (they’re also lawyers). What a payday.

The Federal Reserve, and later the IMF already did something like this and we’ve been paying the fine ever since.

And there is an attorney representing this guy? How? Sounds like a frivolous lawsuit to me. Maybe it is time for tort reform. AS if anyone would pay the judgment....
Just a publicity stunt to get his 15 minutes of fame.

I told him I’d settle in return for his James Brown collection.

He said “What would it profit me to gain the whole world but lose my soul?”

If it works, you’ll only have to sue Mr. Purisima, because he’ll have all the scratch!

Why we need tort reform...I guess he didn’t want to sue Apple, MicroSoft, Nordstrom’s, Macy’s, so I guess he is waiting for his next lawsuit.

Was he drunk or sober when he filed the lawsuit?

He’s hoping to settle out of court for something more reasonable - say $100 trillion.

If he wins this thing, the entire global economy will collapse, along with the economies of several nearby extraterrestrial civilizations.

DANG!
