World's most litigious man sues Guinness Book of World Records


When it comes to litigation, Americans are in a league of their own. But then there’s American Jonathan Lee Riches, who has filed over 4,000 lawsuits around the world, including ones against “George W. Bush, Che Guevara, Perez Hilton, the Eiffel Tower, Britney Spears, Adolf Hitler’s Nazi party, Google, the Roman Empire, The Queen, the Magna Carta, the Wu-Tang Clan, Plato, Emilio Estevez and Nordic Gods.”

Now, Riches is unhappy about being labeled the world’s most litigious person. So much so that he is suing the Guinness Book of World Records.

In his filing that seeks a legal injunction to prevent the Guinness Book of World Records from dubbing him ‘Sue-per-man’, ‘the duke of lawsuits’ and ‘Johnny Sue-nami’, Riches says, “‘The Guinness Book of World Records have no right to publish my work, my legal masterpieces.”

He is currently serving out a sentence for wire fraud at the Federal Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky.
