Actually, this is downright stupid for him. He's paying a lawyer to do this yknow, and he's not gonna win, he's just gonna lose a lot of money.

Contingency fees means that the plaintiff doesn't pay anything unless "damages" are recovered. This, combined with no "loser pays" law, means that there's basically no disincentive to filing frivolous lawsuits (tort, med-mal etc.). Welcome to the wonderful world of the American legal system. You can thank ATLA and our venal politicians for that one.

I don't think he is, judging from the pdf I just posted. You'd be surprised.

He looks more like Kenny Smith, IMO.

We can take care of this guy's problem. We can help remove his left eye, right ear, tongue, and some teeth; the problem should fix itself.

it always amazes me at how stupid lawsuits actually go through in America....

remember the one where the lady sued McDonalds because she spilled hot coffee on herself? she WON and got like millions


there's this other one where some woman sued another fast food place for making their kids fat....

this lowlife suing because he looks like Jordan? It's causing him stress??

Man if he even wins 100 bucks that's just wrong.

Freaking America, fix the loophole filled justice system already.

Why sue Mike and Nike? Why not sue MJ's mother for giving birth to him or maybe the doctor for delivering him or maybe even his own parents for their DNA which caused him to look so much like MJ (supposedly)

I'm not sure what he's suing for. For a lawsuit, you need some sort of injury, don't you? What's the injury?

I mean, if he's being harassed, you can't sue Jordan. Don't you have to sue the harassers?

To be honest, not only should lawsuit be thrown out of court immediately, he should be arrested for harassment against MJ and his agent.

The American Legal system is ridiculous. There has to be punishment for frivilous lawsuits like this....
