Illustration for article titled Man Sues WikiLeaks and Julian Assange for $150 Million Over EMOTIONAL DESTRESS

Apparently Julian Assange has some new legal troubles to worry about: He and WikiLeaks are facing a typo-filled $150 million lawsuit because a Florida man feels that he has suffered some serious emotional distress at the hands of the organization.


David Pitchford claims that WikiLeaks' release of sensitive documents has caused him all sorts of personal damage including a worsening of his hyper-tension, depression, and stress. He also explains that he now lives in "constant fear of being stricken by another heart attack and or stroke" due to the belief that the world is now "on the brink of Nucliar WAR."

You can read the documents Pitchford filed—complete with odd typos—right here:

I really don't think this whole thing will go as well as Pitchford might hope, but at least he is no stranger to disappointment from cases like this as he has apparently unsuccessfully sued Osama Bin Laden in the past. [Thinq via Slashdot via Geekosystem]
