Famed law professor and prolific writer Cass Sunstein, he of the University of Chicago and Harvard Law School, has now been sued for what is apparently the first time. It didn't last long.
Sunstein currently heads the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. It was in that capacity that he was named in a suit filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. Big league stuff, right? Especially since, according to a PACER search, Professor Sunstein has not previously been a named party in a federal lawsuit.
The opening brief by plaintiff Mireille Torjman goes on for 61 pages, with exhibits. Here's a taste:
"This case is about electronic harassment, torture behind the spying surveillance, civil rights violations, privacy, communications technology and crimes against humanity, in use by the U.S. Intelligence Community...plaintiff has been impeded for 5 years in numerous ways consciously and 3 unconsciously, by the public and the uses of Synthetic Telepathy Remote Viewing Pscyhotronics Weapon of Mass Destruction."
So it's like that.
On Thursday, calling these and myriad other claims "flimsier than doubtful," U.S. District Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle dismissed the suit.
