Remember this guy….the sloppy drunk passenger who attacked an Uber driver after he was put out for being too inebriated to know where he was going ? Well, he’s back….and he’s on a mission.
A mission for $5 million, that is.
He is now suing the Uber driver for the pain and suffering of losing his job and being humiliated. He’s basing his lawsuit on the fact that he did not give Edward Caban, the Uber driver, consent to record him on video.
OK…..so where’s the law that says frivolous lawsuits gets thrown out the minute the file clerk rolls her eyes and lets out a sigh that she even wasted two minutes of her life on the paperwork?
Where exactly does common sense come into play here? Or does it?
Only in America….the land of the free…can you attack someone and then turn around and sue them because of the embarrassment of your own actions and ended up losing your job as a consequence.
The best thing this former Taco Bell Exec could have done for himself was quietly go away and attempt to build his own business…cuz let’s face it…he’s simply not hiring material at the moment.
Which is why he’s seeking such an astronomical amount of money, I’m sure.
He should know that no real judge is going to rule in his favor. Camera’s are everywhere and people can lawfully have them in their own vehicles.
Which leads me to wonder….what lawyer was bored enough to take this case?
Even if a miracle occurred and he’s awarded the $5 million, does he think he would ever actually see it? I don’t know too many millionaires that are driving strangers to and fro nowadays.
So, he’s put himself back in the spotlight again….jamming the dagger further into his flesh.
Someone close to this guy should tell’em he’s looking like a fool filing this lawsuit.
Like I tell my children, you don’t get rewarded for bad behavior.

Do you think he could possibly win this lawsuit? Should people be allowed to file frivolous claims?
