Infamy or Praise on Air Frivolity.
Being a huge basketball fan and a huge Michael Jordan fan, I just can't let this recent post over at Infamy or Praise go without comment.
Apparently some guy in Portland is suing Michael Jordan and Nike founder Phil Knight for $832 million because "he's been mistaken as Michael Jordan nearly every day over the past 15 years and he's tired of it." The plaintiff is apparently trying to use defamation as his theory of recovery.
Perhaps the most ridiculous and humorous part of this story is the plaintiff's claim that "Even when I go to the gym I'm accused of playing ball like him (Jordan)." Right.
Needless to say, this claim was filed without the assistance of an attorney. Hopefully because every attorney in the state of Oregon politely told this guy not to let the door hit him in the a$$ on the way out.
