GIGADOLLARS & CENTS

Posted:

In April, Anton Purisima filed a claim in Federal District Court in New York City that Lowering The Bar blog calculated was for the largest monetary demand ever made in a lawsuit: "$2,000 decillion" (or 2 followed by 36 zeroes, which is many times more money than exists on planet Earth). Purisima's lawsuit names Au Bon Pain, Carepoint Health, Kmart, the New York City Transit Authority and LaGuardia Airport among the parties allegedly causing him so much distress by fraud, civil rights violations and even "attempted murder." Lowering The Bar also noted "$2,000 decillion" could have been accurately nominated as "$2 undecillion" or even "two octillion gigadollars."
