Federal inmate Jonathan Lee Riches has sued Stevie Wonder. He's sued George W. Bush. He's sued Michael Vick and Martha Stewart. He's sued the philosopher Plato and the ex-planet Pluto. Riches has filed more than 3,800 lawsuits while in jail—many of them against people or entities that can't be sued—and now he's being sued himself by federal officials seeking to stop the flood of frivolous lawsuits, the AP reports.
Riches—who calls himself the "Zeus of lawsuits"—has filed suits in nearly every jurisdiction in the country since being jailed almost a decade ago for an online credit card scam. Federal officials want the Bureau of Prisons to block his outgoing mail or have a court employee designated to determine whether the lawsuits are frivolous before they are filed.
