A New York man was in 2014 bitten by a dog and, subsequently, he filed a bizarre lawsuit in which he demanded to be paid two undecillion dollars – $2,000,000,000,000, 000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 – for his injuries!
Anton Purisima, 62, sued the city of New York after he was attacked by a canine on a bus and had an infected middle finger. Purisima demanded the huge sum which, in actual terms, is more money than actually exists on the planet.
The suit, filed in April 2014, requested damages for “civil-rights violations, personal injury, retaliation, harassment, attempted murder and intentional infliction of emotional distress”. He lost the case.
