Crazy, for lack of a better word, is good

gordon-gekko.jpgHey, remember Jonathan Lee Riches, everyone’s favorite pro se litigant, who went on a tear filing a ton of ridiculously awesome lawsuits from within his jail cell? Well he’s back, baby! It seems that he’s now doing business as a famous movie character, as he’s now listing himself as “Jonathan Lee Riches d/b/a Gordon Gekko.” Not sure what that’s all about, but in this lawsuit, Mr. Riches/Gekko and a bunch of others are suing Blizzard, the makers of the World of Warcraft video game. Riches/Gekko claims the game caused them “to commit federal crimes.” In fact, the game “caused Riches mind to live in a virtual universe, where Riches explored the landscape committing identity theft and fighting cybermonsterrivalhackergangs.”

Its about time some one has the courage to take on those Blizzard bastards...God Speed crazy guy...god speed...

What continues to amaze me about this man is that, for someone in the clink, he is certainly up on current events and pop culture.

I'm actually pretty impressed with this guy.

His litigation style is creative and refreshing...not to mention his grasp of civil procedure is probably better than most of the attorneys I deal with on an average day.

I guess what I mean is: I'd hire him!

Well, he'll be out in 5 to 10 years, so you can hire him then.
