Man Files Lawsuit Against Guinness Book of Records for Claiming He Filed the Most Lawsuits Ever


A man filed a lawsuit against The Guinness Book of World Records for mentioning him in the book as the most litigious man. At present Jonathan Lee Riches is imprisoned in the Federal Medical Center in Lexington for wire fraud. He is known to have filed more than 4,000 lawsuits worldwide against different people, concepts, and objects.

Ironically, he has sued the Guinness Book of World Records for saying in its 2010 edition that he sued the most people ever. "The Guinness Book of World Records have no right to publish my work, my legal masterpieces," The Spokesman-Review quoted Riches as saying.

In addition, the man doesn't feel happy about the nicknames that The Guinness Book of World Records looks forward to assign to him. Some of the nicknames include "Sue-per-man", "the duke of lawsuits" and "Johnny Sue-nami".

The people and objects that were sued by Riches include George W. Bush, Che Guevara, Perez Hilton, the Eiffel Tower, Britney Spears, Adolf Hitler's Nazi party, Google, the Roman Empire, The Queen, the Magna Carta, the Wu-Tang Clan, Plato and Nordic Gods. Due to his passion for lawsuits the man was banned from suing in several jurisdictions. Riches could be out of jail by 2012.
