    Katrina victim sues U.S. for $3 quadrillion

    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.

    The total number $3,014,170,389,176,410 is the dollar figure so far sought from some 489,000 claims filed against the federal government over damage from the failure of levees and flood walls following the Aug. 29, 2005, hurricane.

    Of the total number of 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.

    This is stupid.. its the Governments fault cause they wanted to live in that bowl that would some day be flooded away? I reckon same goes for those in Cali that might get shoved out into the Pacific when the "Big One" hits.

    You are a moron MD. Crap happens. Life. Deal with it. Want guarantees about what will happen tomorrow that might cause you harm? Shoot yourself today and avoid tomorrow all together.

    Happens mostly when agencies scrub their skip accounts against an outdated phone/address database. Back in the day same-name skipping was common and you'd get multiple cases of 'wrong party'. There are dozens of other possibilities but that's most prominent.
