Early Saturday Evening Entertainment: Man Suing Almost Everyone for All the Money on Earth

NyPo has the story:
A Manhattan man has sued the city, NYC Transit, Au Bon Pain Store, two local hospitals, Kmart, a “Latina” dog owner and anyone else he could think of – for two undecillion dollars.
Anton Purisima, 62, filed the hand-scribbled lawsuit in Manhattan federal court seeking more money than what’s on the planet — and, in turn, likely setting a new record for a lawsuit money demand.
Purisima, who is representing himself, appears to be more of a mathematician than a lawyer.
He correctly listed the obscure number few have heard of – which is written with a “2″ followed by 36 zeros – in a fabulously frivolous 22-page complaint that rambles on by accusing the defendants of everything from civil rights violations to attempted murder 
While its difficult to decipher just what Purisima is accusing the defendants of, some allegations are clear.
His claims include having his middle finger infected and bloodied after being bit by a “rabies-infected” dog on a city bus and then having a “Chinese couple” taking unauthorized photos of him while he was being treated at a local hospital.
The suit claims the pain and damages he suffered can’t be measured in money and are, therefore, “priceless.”
Included in the suit as evidence is a photo of his bloodied finger.


  1. for all the money on earth? not if Yellan and the Fed has anything to do with it.

  2. The plaintiffs should write him a check for it.

  3. I mean the defendants, not plaintiffs.
