Pennsylvania man sues Google founders for $5 billion over secret code in his social security number

Even with all the serious lawsuits surrounding Google every now and then there's still a case that seems just ... off. The latest suit against Google and its founders stems from a man who cared enough to handwrite all 23 pages of his complaint.

One Dylan Stephen Jayne of Pennsylvania filed suit against “Google Internet Search Engine Founders” in Pennsylvania Civil court, seeking the small amount of $5 billion dollars. Jayne claims that his safety is in jeopardy because of Google releasing personal information about him.

Jayne asserts that individuals looking to perform acts of terrorism could obtain his information from Google, making it more likely that he will be detained wrongfully in the future. Jayne’s statement of claim is that, “Dylan Steven Jayne, plaintiff, has a social security number that when the social security number is turned upside down in its entirety it is a scrambled code that does spell the name Google.”

Jayne goes on to state that the United States Department of Justice is heading the investigation into the allegations of crimes against humanity by the Google Search Engine founders and that he was illegally detained as a juvenile in the Milford, Pennsylvania County Court of Common Pleas. Jayne also claims, amongst other things, that he was placed in jail for two-years under misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest and public drunkenness.

Luckily for Google, Jayne is willing to accept the first check in the amount of $250,000 and a second check for the remaining balance. 

Submitted for evidence, Jayne included virtually every piece of his private information; including his credit card, library card and bank overdraft statements.

At the time of publication, "Dylan Stephen Jayne" revealed no hits on Google.  "Dylan Jayne" revealed approximately 200 hits regarding this suit.  In time, Jayne's lawsuit may become a self-fullfilling prophecy -- documents from this case are quickly being circulated through the Internet.  While it may not consistute crimes against humanity, Jayne's personal information is quickly becoming everyone else's business.

Probably the judge will quickly rule this as a frivilous lawsuit and order the plaintiff to pay Google's legal fees.

The case will be thrown out, but he won't have to pay the other parties legal fees. That really is quite rare.

It's also considered futile to seek legal fees from a nutter who doesn't have two nickels to rub together.

I disagree with that.

The reason many "nutters" make these lawsuits is because they dont have two nickels to rub together - so they attempt to create a fraudulent & ridiculous lawsuit, wasting everyones valueable time, effort, and money defending themselves from bogus accusations.

These people need to be made examples of, making the rest of the "nutters" think twice before making allegations and lawsuits.

If you are going to bring about a lawsuit that bears no merit, and make untrue allegations, then you should be responsible for all costs associated with the case - the court costs, your legal fees, and the defending parties legal fees.

Are you suggesting that rich people (who have better lawyers) don't do this sort of thing?

No, im not suggesting that. Im suggesting that most of the frivelous lawsuits out there are for people seeking massive amounts of money from some who has a lot of money.

If a rich person pulled a lawsuit like that, then they should be liable for the same penalties.

But tell me this....how often do rich people sue the poor for monetary damages in a meaningless lawsuit?
