(Scroll down for video) A man claims that no money can compensate him for his distress, which was caused by a dog bite, therefore he is suing for $2 undecillion, according to court documents filed in New York.
Legal experts believe that this was the largest lawsuit ever filed.
Anton Purisima is suing several parties, including the City of New York, a chain of coffee shops and a discount store for $2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. Purisima filed his handwritten lawsuit in federal court in Manhattan, and is representing himself.
$2 undecillion, is more money than all the cash in the world. In his 22-page lawsuit, he states that he is suing for injuries, such as a finger that got infected after being bitten by a dog on a bus.
The 62-year-old man also claims that a Chinese couple illegally took pictures of him at a hospital. In a separate incident, the man complained that he was overcharged for coffee at LaGuardia Airport.
To support his claim he included a photo of his injured finger. He also claimed that the pain cannot be repaired by money and therefore, the compensation is priceless.
The list of defendants in the case include the Transit Authority of the City of New York, New York City , the cafe chain Au Bon Pain, Carepoint Health, a medical center at the University of New Jersey, Kmart, and LaGuardia Airport Administration.
Purisima also filed lawsuits against the People’s Republic of China, and several major banks.
