Sue-per-man is not amused!

guinness-book.jpgEveryone’s favorite litigant, Jonathan Lee Riches, is back. And as always, it’s a peach. The Guinness Book of World Records plans to name Riches the most litigious human being ever. And so, of course, he’s suing them to prevent this. His lawsuit, which seeks an injunction, claims that they’re going to print false information about him, and he also objects to the various names they plan to call him: “Patrick Ewing of Suing,” “Sue-per-man,” “Johnny Sue-nami,” the “Duke of Lawsuits” and “The Litigator Crusader.”

But his lawsuit seems to be tailor made for Guinness’ own defense:

“I’ve filed so many lawsuits with my pen and right hand that I got arthritis in my fingers, numbness in my wrists, crooked fingers,” he wrote - by hand - in the latest filing. “I flush out more lawsuits than a sewer.”

It’s safe to say that the court will likely throw this case out, yet again denying Mr. Riches his day in court. One day, Jonathan. One day, that arthritis will be worth it. Keep hope alive!
