John M. Lyons Jr had his abandoned boat commandeered by his neighbor, Mark Morice, who used it as part of an effort to rescue as many as 200 people in the aftermath from Hurricaine Katrina. Now Lyons is suing Morice, claiming that he suffered his own distress, in the form of “grief, mental anguish, embarrassment and suffering . . . due to the removal of the boat.”
Um, if you ask me, he should be feeling grief, mental anguish and embarrassment for filing the damn lawsuit.
Morice also commandeered two other boats for his rescues. No word on whether the owners of those boats are seeking to make this a class action suit
