$38 Quadrillion Lawsuit Filed Over Mine Dispute

He was involved in a dispute over an ownership stake in a Utah mine, so he filed a lien on the property for $918 billion. Three lawyers then filed a lawsuit to remove the lien, so he sued them back. The�Daily Herald�newspaper says he is now demanding $38 quadrillion, more money than there is in the world.
