I will sue Oprah for ONE ... TRILLION ... DOLLARS

Oprah WinfreyA poet named Damon Lloyd Goffe is suing Oprah for one trillion dollars. Yes, with a "t". Reportedly, Oprah plagiarized some of his poetry in her Internet-published work "Pieces of my Soul." I have to hand it to this guy's ingenuity. If any celebrity out there has a trillion dollars on hand, it's Oprah.

I'm going on a limb and guessing this guy isn't going to win. It would likely cost her a lot less to buy off the jury, judge, bailiffs and the rest of the city of Chicago.

On the very unlikely chance he does win, he'll get less than the asking price. Doing so would require Oprah to admit fault and I'm not sure she's capable of that.

It seems more like a big publicity stunt like the people that sue Dan Brown, J.K. Rowling or Stephanie Meyer. One thing is for certain. Whether he succeeds or fails, he will not be featured on Oprah's Book Club.

This case has been widely misreported. The case has already been dismissed by the court and if you google Mr. Goffe you will find out that he is also suing NBC and Will Smith in an equally ridiculous suit.
