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 $2,000,000,000, 000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (Two undecillion)
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 is representing himself.
He correctly listed the obscure number few have heard of 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. Included in the suit as evidence is a photo of his bloodied finger.
