Have you ever wondered what is the most expensive lawsuit in the history of lawsuits? Meet Anton Purisima – the man, who’s suing the whole New York City for more money than this planet could ever gather!
Purisima is a 62 year old man from Manhattan, New York, who has made it into the headlines around the world after asking for two Undecillion US dollars from the city and almost all of its residents. An Undecillion is a cosmic amount of money, which includes the unbelievable 36 zeros in it (actually 66 if you count it in UK pounds). And Mr. Purisma is asking for two, which basically means $ 2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000! So what is this guy’s deal? He’s suing the city, two of its hospitals, one bakery, the Kmart chain and one dog owner. The man claims that he wants monetary compensation for a number of damages, which include injuries, violation of civil rights, harassment, conspiracy to defraud, emotional distress and even attempted murder.
The man handwrote his lawsuit, which is 22 pages long.
