Staten Island Mom Sues For 900 Trillion Dollars!!
A Staten Island mom is so mad today....that she wants a court to award her 900 trillion dollars. She says the town of West Brighton improperly placed her two children in foster care.
Most people are treating the lawsuit as a joke, but plaintiff
Ogunbayo is not kidding. In fact, some say she is actually quite clever in choosing the $900 trillion dollar figure because she is now getting worldwide attention.
Ogunbayo sued the city and the Administration for Children's Services (ACS), alleging that both entities violated her and her children's civil liberties by placing them in foster care in June, 2008. In her lawsuit, obtained by The Smoking Gun, Ogunbayo listed her grievances as follows:
"For causing plaintiff substantial economic hardship; for causing plaintiff substantial economic injuries; for depriving plaintiff and plaintiff children's Civil Right, 42 U.S.C. section 1983; for depriving plaintiff and plaintiff's children, the right to family integrity; for depriving plaintiff and plaintiff's children, the right to life, liberty, property and the right guaranteed by statute; for disregarding the probability of plaintiff's children, suffering emotional and mental distress."
Ogunbayo is representing herself in the case.
