(Newser) – One slightly bent Florida fellow is suffering from more serious depressions, higher hypertension and more stressful stress, he's charging in a typo-riddled lawsuit filed against WikiLeaks. He's in "constant fear of being stricken by another heart attack or stroke" because he now believes the world is "on the brink of Nucliar WAR," notes David Pitchford in his suit demanding $150 million. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange can probably rest easy. Pitchford's last suit, against Osama Bin Laden, didn't get off the ground, reports Gizmodo.
