Let's play judge.
Here's the law:
Claims describing fantastic or delusional scenarios fall into the category of cases whose factual contentions are clearly baseless. Judges have the discretion to decide whether a complaint is frivolous, and such finding is appropriate when the facts alleged are irrational or wholly incredible.
And here's the claim, filed in the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. by a Mr. Andrew Gill. As summed up by Judge Emmet Sullivan:
"In a lengthy and rambling complaint, (Gill) alleges that he has been harassed by agents of the United States Secret Service, that police stalked him, that he was forced to save the life of a veteran in St. Louis, Missouri, that he was convicted of criminal offenses in Hannibal,Missouri, that he was sexually assaulted in Sacramento, California, that he worked as an undercover informant for the Drug Enforcement Administration, that he was denied a proper education in elementary, middle, and high schools, and that others have accused him of using LSD."
What's your call?
In a ruling Jan. 6, Judge Sullivan applied the 'fantastic or delusional' test and dismissed Mr. Gill's case.
