Another entry in the WTF files:
In what has already been described as the most frivolous lawsuit of all time, 62 year old Anton Purisima is suing pretty much everybody in Manhattan that he can think of. In a hand-written complaint, he is suing for several things, such as pain and suffering, discrimination, privacy violations, and attempted murder. While some of the reasons aren't clear, apparently his middle finger was bitten by a dog while he was on the bus and a "Chinese couple" (who he is also suing) took photos of the incident without his consent while he was at the hospital. He is also suing LaGuardia airport for overcharging him on his coffee. For reasons unknown he is also suing a Kmart, NYC Transit, two hospitals, and Au Bon Pain.
How much is he suing for, you ask? He is asking for TWO UNDECILLION DOLLARS!!
For the uninitiated, two undecillion is a two with 36 zeros behind it and looks like this:
This is more money than what exists in the entire world. Purisima says that "the pain and damages he suffered can't be measured in money and are, therefore, 'priceless.'"
