Prison Inmate Sues Game Publishers

Jonathan Lee Riches, inmate "rich" in intelligence, is seeking restraining orders from game publishers, including Activision, Atari, and Take-Two. Video games offend his sensibilities, AND they contributed to his identity theft, AND promote racial hatred, AND EVEN increase his fear that someone will beat him up and snatch his chain. He also is claiming that he is not granted access to video games in jail, which is a form of discrimination (when this is the most legit part of your claim, you know you are in trouble). This is the same man who "has already filed more than 1,500 lawsuits this year against a wide-ranging array of defendants including Washington Capitals left winger Alexander Ovechkin, Alone in the Dark star Christian Slater, St. Patrick's Day, the 9-11 Commission Report, and Star Wars. He is perhaps best known for suing former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick for $63 billion after Vick's illegal dog fighting operation was uncovered."

How Did Someone This Smart Get Locked Up?

Freedom is the name of the game today: some people have it, and some do not.
