Man files world's most expensive lawsuit

A man is suing New York City and others for two trillion trillion trillion dollars over a dog bite.
In what is being described as the most frivolous lawsuit in history, one Manhattan resident is suing several cities, companies and organizations from across the United States for a sum of money that totals approximately $2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 ( two undecillion ) after his middle finger was bitten by a "rabies-infected" dog on a bus.

In relation to the dog bite he is also suing Au Bon Pain, Hoboken University, LaGuardia Airport and many others on the basis that a Chinese couple took photographs of him without his permission and that he believes he is overcharged for coffee on a regular basis.

The perplexing sum is unlikely to ever be paid however as even in the extremely unlikely event that he actually wins the lawsuit, the amount of money he is asking for is so large that all the money that has ever existed throughout Earth's entire history probably wouldn't even make a dent.

You think Starbucks chages a fair price for what they call coffee? Starbucks is overpriced but it's my choice to pay or not. What precedence is there to sue over the price of a double-frappe-mocha-latte-chino with drizzled caramel and whipped cream? Can I get a scone with that too? No, the blueberry one.

What a stupid-ass human being. If you ever wonder why our world hasn't been visited by a advanced civilization its because muff-tards like this portray the Earth as nothing but some trailer trash comedy on Fox.

Imagine if he wins? Obama and the IRS probably would have this guy in the 99.9999% tax bracket, so the FedGov would get 99.9999% of the money.

I think he stands a way better chance of reaching his goal if he became a counterfeiter. Especially since there isn't that much money in the USA.

They need to stop some lawsuits from happening- this is ridiculous. All its going to do is cost tax payer money to fund the court, judge and lawyers that will have to obligatorily be there. Too many lawsuits today. Lawyers love the present situation where anyone can sue over anything and you have to have a court hearing to get it dismissed. Since lawyers also control the legislatures, change is not likely, and the courts are imbued with the notion that "everyone is entitled to their day in court."In the states if you lose a suit, nothing happens. It is almost impossible to succeed in malicious... [More]

I'd hate to see that guy getting into a car accident. He'd sue all the car manufacturing companies, all driver's education institutions, the other person involved, along with family and family tree dating back to the stone age... Everything related to transportation really. NASCAR...

Yea we should all sue Adam and Eve and name Satan as a co-defendant.
