Robert L. Brock vs. Robert L. Brock

Robert Lee Brock sued himself for $5 million.

His complaint? It was his own fault that he committed grand larceny and breaking-and-entering.

The lawsuit: Mr Brock had violated Mr. Brock's own civil and religious rights by allowing himself to get drunk and commit the crimes. Therefore, Mr. Brock should have to pay himself $5 million.

The logic of the suit: Mr. Brock could not pay the $5 million because he was being incarcerated by the State of Virginia. Hence, the State was preventing him from receiving an income. Therefore, the state should pay the claim.

Interesting logic. Unfortunately for him, the court thought it was stupid and he lost the case.
