Man sues for damages worth two undecillion dollars
A 62-year-old man filed a lawsuit for damages equaling more than all the money on the planet
A New York City man has sued the city, its transit network, a bakery chain, two local hospitals, a supermarket and a dog owner for the unprecedented sum of two undecillion dollars.
Anton Purisma, 62, filed the lawsuit in a federal court. In addition to his hefty claim, he also submitted a 22-page complaint that accuses the defendants to crimes such a civil rights violations to attempted murder, the daily New York Post reported on Thursday.
Purisma’s list of grievances include having one of his fingers infected after being bit by a “rabies-infected” while on a bus.
He also included a photo of his bloodied finger in the suit filing as evidence.
An undecillion is a number that has 36 zeros after 1 – meaning that Purisima’s lawsuit full lawsuit amount is $2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.
But Purisma’s suit may be largely symbolic. The filing claims that the pain and damages suffered are “priceless” and thus cannot be measured in money.
