Guinness gave the world record for ‘most lawsuits filed’ to a man. He sued them for it!

Jonathan Lee Riches is infamous for the number of lawsuits he's filed in various US district courts. One of the most ironic is that the Guinness Book of World Records named him the 'most litigious individual in the history of mankind'… and he sued them for it!

All in all, he's filed over 2600 federal lawsuits. Among the named defendants are George W. Bush, Perez Hilton, Britney Spears, Michael Vick, the INS, and even Somali pirates. He also filed a restraining order against the makers of Grand Theft Auto because he said inmates who play the game might be influenced to knock him out.

He has also filed a lawsuit against Kanye West and Kim Kardashian as being terrorist, and even named the Eiffel Tower, all the survivors of the Holocaust and even Plato as a defendant in some of his lawsuits.

At one point Riches was incarcerated at Federal Medical Center in Kentucky for wire fraud. He was released in April 2012, and arrested for violating his probation in December when he allegedly drove to Connecticut and impersonated the uncle of the shooter in the Sandy Hook incident.
