$75 billion lawsuit targets Apple, Oprah, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and many others

“Apple is one of dozens of defendants named in a new bizarre lawsuit that seeks a whopping $75 billion in return for claims of civil rights violations, conspiracy and fraud, to name a few,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.

“The wild accusations from David Louis Whitehead of Bossier, La., are included in a 99-page complaint filed this month in a U.S. District Court in the Western District of Arkansas. Apple is included among a long list of defendants including numerous judges, U.S. presidents, Hollywood studios, celebrities and banks,” Hughes reports. “Apple’s exact role in Whitehead’s elaborate tale is unclear, but ‘Apple Computer Inc.’ is listed as a defendant that is alleged to have engaged in ‘outrageous and reckless and extreme acts against the plaintiff, with the massive theft of the plaintiff’s copyrighted works, grossing millions if not billions of dollars.'”

“The plaintiff believes much of that money was made as a result of talk-show host Oprah Winfrey, who is accused of promoting ‘several film projects’ based on original writings by Whitehead,” Hughes reports. “Apparently a prolific writer, Whitehead has penned books, scripts and plays about a broad range of topics… Whitehead has a long legal history in which he has filed countless lawsuits, many of which are cited in the latest complaint. He also believes that a number of presidents — including Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama — have appointed judges to sabotage his relentless pursuits through the U.S. court system.”

    1. I suggest plaigarizing his complaint and for a mere few hundred bucks’ filing fee, you can have your own lawsuit. Except why not go for $75 trillion instead? The guy really has no ambition.

  1. Amazon has one book by an author with this name: “Brains, Sex and Racism in the CIA and the Escape: And the Escape”. With a catchy title like that I understand why it is copied with such frequency. It has a best seller rank of 5,709,676 so it is hot!

    2 used copies are available at $75 or for the author signed version $69.

    Better hurry!

  2. I agree, lets sue God, and the entire civilization too. “I demand a satisfaction to this doomed society…”. – Lets sue him for being so greedy – Oooh, this is not a comic book!!!

    These billionaire demands for the reasons claimed look very, very Gotham City to me: Lets call “Batman”…

  3. If this guy gets $0.01
    it will open the flood gates on lawsuits.

    Just like the McDonalds hot coffee lawsuit.

    I just saw this in the Link
    “That same year, a man alleged in court that Apple conspired with the Italian mafia to secretly track him and transmit threatening messages to his iPod.”
