More Trouble For Vick

July 27th, 2007at 10:08pm Posted by Eli

In today’s Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

As if Michael Vick didn’t have enough troubles, he may have to fork over $63 billion – that’s billion, with a B – if one Jonathan Lee Riches prevails in court.

The aptly named Riches’ lawsuit against Vick, filed this week in U.S. District Court in Richmond, was handwritten. That’s because Riches is currently a guest of the Graybar Hotel in South Carolina (it’s not clear which town; his handwriting’s a little hard to read). The lawsuit does not explain what landed Riches in the clink, but does spell out a number of dastardly allegations: that Vick supposedly stole Riches’ dogs for dogfighting purposes, opened credit cards in Riches’ name and stole his copyrighted property. (“Mr. Vick uses my name to sell T-shirts,” the suit alleges at one point).

But wait. It gets worse.

Riches claims that Vick sold the pilfered pooches on eBay and used the proceeds to purchase missles from the Iranian government, that he has “plead (sic) allegiance to Al-quaeda” and has subjected Riches to “microwave testing.”

Riches is demanding $63 billion “backed by gold and silver.” Should he prevail against Atlanta’s erstwhile sports hero, at least another hometown team will benefit: he wants the loot delivered by Atlanta-based UPS.

Any lawyers out there? Does this guy have a case? He sounds pretty credible to me.
