Inmate Case Points

  • In 1995, Brock filed a very unique lawsuit/
  • He was suing himself for five million dollars.
  • His reasoning was that on the night he committed the crime, he got drunk, and drunkenness violated his personal and religious beliefs.
  • He stated that he would be glad to pay himself the 5 million, but since he was incarcerated, he contended that the state of Virginia should pay him the 5 million.
  • He also said that he would pay the state of Virginia back after he was released.

Case Ruling

“Plaintiff has presented an innovative approach to civil rights litigation. However, his claim and especially the relief sought are totally ludicrous.” This is the ruling handed down by the court that heard his case. The judge was not amused by Brock's creativity. The judge threw out the lawsuit on the grounds of it being frivolous. Brock attempted to appeal his case several times, but was continually denied. He continues to file law suits, against the prison and his fellow inmates.
