As personal privacy and personal rights seriously, now Sue claim lawsuits more and more, but the amount involved is not a great general, but you will see the largest amount of the claim, can not be too exaggerated, because you can not imagine that how many money, to be able to do something, but it doesn’t matter, here with specific things to tell you, in the history of the maximum amount of claim for compensation, What is the concept?
Anton Purisma v. Aubompang Cafe, Kelpent Health Center, Hoboken University Medical Center, Kmart Store 7749, St. Luke Hospital Emergency Department, New York City Transit Authority, City of New York, New York MTA, LaGuardia Airport Authority, etc., Case No. 1:14CV 2755 (District Court, Southern District of New York, 4/11/2014) civil rights violations, causing bodily harm, discrimination based on national origin, retaliation, harassment, fraud, attempted murder, intentional emotional distress, and conspiracy to defraud, Claim decillion $2000 ($2000000000000000000000000000000000000), self defense.
Surprisingly, though this charge is hardly to be taken seriously, Mr Priesma’s maths does not seem to have got it wrong — even if he could have been simpler. According to this very useful “large number web page”, “decillion” in American usage means a 1 followed by 33 zeros. “2000 decillion dollars” can therefore be written as a 2 followed by 36 zeroes, as Anton did in parentheses. Well done.
However, a 1 followed by 36 zeros is an “undecillion” (which is a bit awkward; shouldn’t the term be used to refer to any number that isn’t decillion?). So he could have simply said “2 undecillion dollars” and everyone (after a little research) would still be able to figure out exactly how much he was asking for.
None of this matters, because the demands already exceed all the money in the world combined. We saw this happen back in 2008 – when we were still stuck at the quadrillion level (see “Katrina victims Sue for $3 trillion”). At the time, I calculated that the damages awarded to the defendants by the plaintiffs were, in effect, equivalent to the entire gross domestic product of the United States for the next 228 years, and that if paid in pennies (as it should be), there would be just 301 piles — but each pile would be tall enough to reach Saturn.
