    This isn't a law suit it's a 'Law Suite'

    Yeah, but that keeps the powerful in power and the weak in the mud. Maybe there could be a pretrial hearing to look at the allegations and based on the claims, or evidence present, someone could determine if it would proceed as a loser pays case?



    Nothing would be worse than to have someone with a legitimate claim and limited resources to be squashed by a big company that simply out spent what he could muster in "adequate assets".

    Not sure why you need to drag the lawyers into this. The guy filed it In Pro Per. In other words, by himself with no lawyers involved.

    The problem isn't the guy filing the suit, or that the other side has to pay a lawyer. The problem is the system doesn't require a guy to provide any evidence of his allegation initially. That comes much later. Further, sometimes a case is so baseless on its face, but Judges don't dismiss the case when asked to early on.



    I agree with your sentiment though. A loser pays system will result in many people who have been wronged not suing. People often have good cases, but lose nonetheless. Judges are people and multiple judges can rule different ways on the same issue.

    He (should have) amended his lawsuit to claim that he is a space alien and represents an advanced race (of which he obviously not an example) which secretly gave all that technology and those creative ideas to the defendants.

    Sounds like someone has been drinking the Hooch again.



    This will dropped very quickly (unless he sent some of that hooch to the local judges) because it is highly unlikely that, assuming he can prove the prior creation date, he can prove the offenders had access to his work before creating theirs. And that proven access is a major part of copyright claims. Apple et al will file for dismissal due to said lack of proof and if that isn't granted they could always counter sue to scare the guy off

    This loser is beyond comprehension. I guess he'll find a reason to sue me for using the name maccherry.

    maybe it came from one of his delusional plays.

    I was with my cousin and sister at 111 minnna and Frank showed up. since we were deep into libations at this point we decided to take Frank with us into a cab to the fairmont hotel bar and get him drunk. he is one bizarre fellow. I even interviewed him on my iPhone.



    I'm considering advertising my company on his picket sign.



    good times
