If Shawna Cox wanted to make a point in her lawsuit against the federal government, she's most effectively doing so via the amount she's suing for.

Specifically, per KOIN 6, Cox wants "in excess of $666,666,666,666.66 Six hundred sixty six billion, six hundred sixty six million, six hundred sixty six thousand, six hundred sixty six dollars and sixty six cents" for what she says was her role as "a victim, witness and informant to extremely serious public corruption and government oppression."
