Federal Government Sued For Three Quadrillion Dollars For Katrina Damage

A resident of Baker, Louisiana has sued the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for $3 quadrillion in damages as a result of hurricane Katrina. This plaintiff puts to shame Jonathan Lee Riches©, the inmate who gained prominence by suing Michael Vick for 63 billion dollars. To put the figure in some perspective, a quadrillion is 1,000,000,000,000,000.

Also mentioned in the story is quote from Louisiana lawyer Daniel Becnel, Jr., who is quoted as saying, “The trauma these people [Katrina victims] have undergone is unlike anything that has occurred in the history of our country.” All lawyers are prone to a certain amount of hyperbole, but trauma unlike anything that has ever occurred in this country take it a bit too far. Take the 1900 hurricane that struck Galveston, Texas and caused 6,000 casualties, compared to the 1,600 deaths from Katrina. Or, the 618,000 casualties suffered during the Civil War.

Let us get some perspective.

  1. What a joke. That shit just makes me sick.

  2. This makes my day. How awesome to sue for 3 quatrillion dollars. I hope they get every last penny.

  3. I meant to say: I hope they get all their quatrillions IN PENNIES.

  4. Too bad if you totaled all the US money that’s in circulation, you wouldn’t even have 1 *quadrillion* dollars.

  5. Abarclay…If they get every penny, don’t you think you will lose out in some way or another? i.e. you pay taxes if you live in America, if you are outside you will still pay higher export taxes from America. Bottom line, everyone in American loses except the ones filling.

  6. “trauma unlike anything that has ever occurred in this country”

    No kidding–like how about Pearl Harbor; 9/11; the year with Rosie on “The View”, Howard Dean running for President; the OJ trial; Twista-Beads; Tickle-Me Elmo; the lack of Wii’s in the stores before Christmas; the cancellation of the Camero; the revelation that there will be no more Star Wars movies–must I go on?

  7. This is unbelievable. In the long run we American’s will lose any way. We will end up paying for every dam dime of it just like we pay for the illegals and there kids, medical and everything else. I am just sick about it, can’t some of these dam people help themselves at all? We are headed for being a 3rd world country as it is, and now we should pay for this? BULL SHIT

  8. Did the victims of the tsunami sue the goverment -.- no.. and u cant blame the goverment. look a natural disaster.. no its not it’s a conspiracy… wtf…. then u can blame the secret service for the rain… -.- stupid… what about WW2… Did ppl sue germany… no…
