What a Joke … Hurricane Katrina Victim Sues for $3 quadrillion


Hurricane Katrina was a catastrophic loss for many victims not only in New Money_manOrleans where most all the media concentrates their stories, but for the entire Gulf Coast region. However, for someone to sue for $3,014,170,389,176,410 is a total and complete joke. This is about as ludicrous as when Al Bundy on “Married With Children” looked to sue for a GA-zillion dollars.

If one ever wanted to trivialize the real damages that victims of Hurricane Katrina truly suffered, this is certainly the way to do it. Of course there was a willing attorney to aid this individual in the process.

NEW ORLEANS – Hurricane Katrina’s victims have put a price tag on their suffering and it is staggering — including one plaintiff seeking the unlikely sum of $3 quadrillion.
A whopping $3,014,170,389,176,410 is the dollar figure so far sought from some of the largest claims filed against the federal government over damage from the failure of levees and flood walls following the Aug. 29, 2005, hurricane.

Of roughly 489,000 total claims, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said it has received 247 for at least $1 billion apiece, including the one for $3 quadrillion. (Yahoo News)

Maybe names should be released …

The corps released zip codes, but no names, for the 247 claims of at least $1 billion. The list includes a $77 billion claim by the city of New Orleans. Fourteen involve a wrongful death claim. Fifteen were filed by businesses, including several insurance companies.

Little is known about the person who claimed $3 quadrillion. It was filed in Baker, 93 miles northwest of New Orleans. Baker is far from the epicenter of Katrina’s destruction, but the city has a trailer park where hundreds of evacuees have lived since the storm.

      Oh, wow, I wonder what the people in Kankakee, Watseka, and Pontiac Illinois can sue for? There was huge flooding there yesterday.

      You don’t hear alot of cry babies from Illinois calling for $$$ because of the flooding.

      Do these idiots realize they are suing the tax payers of the US.

      So, these people knew they were living in a city that sat down in a bowl surrounded by large bodies of water and when their own city knew that a hurricane was coming and went on television and told everyone to leave (I watched it myself) and then when so many didn’t leave and got themselves into trouble it was then the government’s responsiblity to get them out of trouble. And now, it is the government’s fault that they are where they are? Even though the government paid for so many of them to live in other cities at the government’s expense. I would like to see more people take responsiblity for themselves and realize that sometimes….bad things just happen. Nobody’s fault…it just happens.

      If a hurricane wreaks devastation, as is natural … how is that the fault of the government?

    8. Patti on January 11th, 2008 1:22 am

      I don’t know, nor do many people, the value to put on human life. Who’s to say how much is too much when it’s your whole Family? Besides, it’s a known fact that they unleashed some of the water in certain areas of the city. For some, maybe a slap on the hand is good. Think about how much we spend taking lives. For once, perhaps the money is going the right direction.

      The Government shouldn’t play

      God with its’ own people.

      #2Pam Thank You

      Some times its all about the choices we make.

      I can have great sympathy for people displaced from their homes all over the planet But,I certainly can not support this noncense.

      New Orleans is below sea level.A raising sea to boot.Movie stars and fellow Americans and yes the Gov`t have given and given and given.Give it up!!Mother Nature will prevail.Live there if you like, just don`t ask the Gov`t[me] to pay for a free life for you.

      I suspect the Gov`t was paying for alot of them Before Katrina was even formed!!

    10. Pam on January 11th, 2008 10:48 am

      #9 Scarrlett, I agree with you 100%. The sense of entitlement that has been shown by so many from that area is very frustrating to me. I agree that many of these people were already being supported by the goverment before Katrina came along. My husband works in law enforcement and has been very frustrated by the large number of people from that area living in our city off of the government only to complain about what they are not getting instead of being grateful for what they are getting (I use current tense because this is still taking place) The buildings made to house many of them have been completely trashed and not to mention the increase in crime in the city involving them. Having said all of this, I want to make sure to say that as in all situations, this scenario does not apply to all citizens from that area. There have been many as well that have been very grateful for what they are being given.

      So, the City of New Orleans has put in a claim for $77 BILLION, huh? Well, it has wasted already billions of dollars!

      And I remember distinctly Mayor Nagin being questioned and criticized on all the focus on putting on and celebrating Mardi Gras 2006 — barely 6 months after Katrina hit New Orleans (N.O.) so hard on Aug 29, 2005.

      His basic response and this is a near quote: ‘New Orleans is a party town – get over it.’

      Billions of federal money (our taxes) have been squandered in and around N.O. Nagin and company have wanted from the very beginning to bring back every resident who had to leave. This was likely to ensure N.O. would remain his ‘chocolate city.’

      Most of the city leadership in all areas is a joke. It has been that way for decades — widely known for corruption at all levels and a huge cost in federal dollars (our taxes) in public benefits for the ‘poor.’

      I believe N.O. is important for its port services; this can and should be rebuilt. Additionally, the tourist area which mostly sits at a high ground level can be maintained to bring in those important tourist dollars.

      To do more than that is just plain ludicrous and any person with common sense can see that.

      According to news articles, New Orleans is already a top contender for Murder Capital of the U.S.A. for 2007. And that is with about only 65% of its pre-Katrina population according to CNN article, dated 12/25/07.

      Congratulations New Orleans — you are returning to normal!

      They want this in front of a jury of there peers in N.O.,and probably want get but 1.5 guadrillion and will be broke in 1 year because they blew it all at the casino.
