A man in the US is suing a psychic who he claims had failed to remove a curse put on his marriage by a witch.
The bizarre lawsuit has been filed by Mauro Restrepo from California who was told that his former girlfriend had asked a witch to place a 'bad luck' curse on his marriage.
His psychic - self-proclaimed 'love specialist' Sophia Adams - had told him about the alleged curse during a tarot reading session and emphasized that it would ruin him if it was not removed.
She then offered to exorcise the spell for the princely sum of $5,100.
In the fraud lawsuit, which was filed with the Torrance Superior Court, Restrepo is seeking $2,500 in damages having paid an initial deposit of $1,000 to have the curse lifted.
The psychic's intervention "did not in any way help" his marriage, he argued.
In addition to the damages, his charges against her include negligence, civil conspiracy and both intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
Given the peculiar nature of the case it's hard to know exactly how things will turn out, however it seems likely that Restrepo will at least be able to recoup the money he spent.
As for the curse - it's doubtful than anyone will be able to actually prove its existence in court.
Then again - proving that it doesn't exist is likely to be just as difficult.
