This little project got started yesterday with the settlement agreement between Gucci and Guess over the letter "G".
That post promptly veered off course into the longest-running lawsuit on record. (761 years, judgement was for the plaintiff)
It also touched on "Jarndyce v Jarndyce" in Dickens' Bleak House.
Today, faced with a half-dozen open tabs on an internet-connected computer the choice was post 'em or trash 'em?
Patient reader knows how that decision went, starting with "Lawsuit Filed Against Everyone For All The Money On Earth".
And that's the basis of this last (promise) lawsuit post this week. Apparently the "Manhattan man... [suing] the city, NYC Transit, Au Bon Pain Store,
two local hospitals, Kmart, a 'Latina' dog owner and anyone else he
could think of " has done this before.
It almost reads like an Edgar Allan Poe descent into madness tale, what with the Transit Authority, the police, the emergency room, the bank, another emergency room (Haldol, stat!) and the Social Security Administration. That's just the first page.
Like "It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen." to start 1984, you know immediately something is a little bit off here.
Note PURISIMA v. TD BANK et al for example
Filed in - Federal Appellate & District Courts - All:
It goes on for 3 1/2 more pages. Attentive reader will note Justia has a dedicated RSS feed for following Mr. Purisma through the court system.
Alternatively you can track him by circuit, by state, of by type of suit.
