This guy must not be very well read..... If The Passion of the Christ is similar to his paper, I think I know of some prior art to his thesis This whole suit is really sad....

About a year ago, I came across the following article. It's a thorough empirical analysis of "loser pays" that's understandable by lay people like me. It recommends litigation insurance and a cap on the amount of recoverable fees to deal with potential problems with loser pays.

Nonsense! He's clearly responsible for all the ideas and writings in American culture in particular & Western culture in general!

Historically (1977 - 2010) the number of patents filed in the US, by US entities, is the largest in the world; therefore, just like Windows malware numbers vs. Mac OS, the number of idiots ready to claim infringement is proportionally higher, and therefore so is the number of lawyers!

It just proves how slow the legal system has become. It only took 4 days to get registered through the courts.

I've been drinking with him as well, and even have a hand-written letter from the past. It's not often that one gets to read the phrase "...murdered in the testicles!" But he seems to have gotten the correct mix of meds over time, and has become San Francisco's new Emperor Norton.

I say Apple should settle with the guy for $50,000 or so. He obviously could use the money to cover the psychiatric care he obviously needs.

I remember this guy. Back in 1996, I was the light board operator at the "world premiere" in Washington, DC of "The Big Bad Wolf vs. Miss Little Red Riding Hood - The Mike Tyson Story." It was the most horribly written theatre production that I ever had the misfortune to work on. A couple people showed up to the preview performance. Not a soul showed up for opening night. The performance was canceled that night along with the entire two week run. We never got paid. After this production, "It's not my problem" became the mantra of the entire tech crew for the theatre. I thought the guy was nuts then, but this takes it to a whole new level.

Actually there maybe a way of penalising such people - even under the insane US legal system.

There is a current 'crime' of 'Vexatious Litigation' which unfortunately does not appear to fully apply to this case. It would allow the victim(s) to counter-sue for Malicious Prosecution. However there is an older apparently no longer enforced crime of 'Barratry' which would seem more applicable in this case.

Barratry was unfortunately repealed as an offense in 1967 in the UK but I believe is still on the law books in the US although not actively enforced. Clearly it is time it was applied once more.

By the way, I agree with others that simply making the loser pay is not the right answer. The legal system especially here in the UK is already biased heavily in favour of the rich. Not just in the matter of getting legal representation but also in the penalties the rich get compared to those less well off.

The problem is if that were required most wronged parties would never have any legal recourse especially if the nature of the damages they are seeking caused a financial hardship.

In other words If I defraud you out of a million dollars and that was all your net worth you would never be able to sue me to recover it no matter how strong the case was against me.

We have something in California state courts called vexatious litigant. If some crazy keeps filing bogus complaints he could be declared a vexatious litigant and would be forced to post a bond in order to file any future complaint. But even if he had filed here, and lost, odds are the best someone could get against him would be a judgment that he would never pay.

This guy owes me money... He told me all about this crazy lawsuit... He is crazy.... Everytime I asked for my money he had this excuse about this lawsuit he is trying to get paid all this money.. He needs to be put in jail for this foolishness. If anyone wants me to testify against him...I will.... I invested into one of these so called plays 3 years ago. $2500.00... I even travelled to Louisiana to meet him and his so called promoter.
