Handwritten Lawsuit Accuses Google Having A Name Similar To Accuser's Social Security Number

from the plaintiff-and-defendant(s)-have-a-responsibility-to-fight-the-war-on-terrorism dept

We've seen some really bizarre and silly lawsuits filed against Google over the years, but this latest one wins hands down. Eric Goldman (http://blog.ericgoldman.org/) gets all the credit in the world for sending this one over. Someone has filed a handwritten lawsuit against Google, asking for $5 billion in damages, because his social security number, when turned upside down and scrambled spells Google. And then it gets weirder. The war on terrorism makes an appearance, as does a Burton snowboard. If you're reading this via RSS, click on through to see the filing in all its handwritten glory. Update: As pointed out in the comments, the guy actually filed 8 other things (http://dockets.justia.com/docket/court-pamdce/case_no-3:2007cv01677/case_id-69169/) with the court, including a rather detailed description of how the Philadelphia 76ers play a key role in the code to unscramble his social security number to spell Google.

Same here. My name has an 'e' in it, as does the word 'Google', so people may find out my real name and then find out my bank details and use them for criminal purposes! :mad:

Look out Google - I'm going to sue.

That's the best one ! But I don't understand, the guy said is social security number is Google inverse so it would be like 319009. Ehh ok loll ! :vlol:

Oh dear, if this isn't frivolous then I don't know what is :rolleyes: By the way, a social security number has 9 digits and google has 6 letters, so I don't see how his SSN could spell google, unless the other three numbers somehow spell FBI, which is where the security issue comes in? :p

Another example to support that suing people should be disallowed.....

I agree that punitive lawsuits shouldn't be allowed (if the offense is that bad, then criminal charges should be brought up...) I do like the idea of being able to sue for specific quantifiable damages, though (something that can be rather objectively measured and has nothing to do with emotional distress or anything of that nature) :)
