Man Suing All of New York for Well Over A Trillion 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.


Purisima’s number is unlisted and he could not be reached for comment.
