Jonathan Lee Riches reportedly filed Johnny Manziel lawsuit

Jonathan-Lee-RichesAs we all expected, the sexual harassment lawsuit filed against Johnny Manziel earlier this month was nothing more than a hoax that someone slipped through the cracks in a Florida courtroom. The suit was filed under the name Samantha Schacher, as in the cohost of the “Dr. Drew on Call” show on HLN. The person believed to be behind the prank is Jonathan Lee Riches.

Apparently Riches is known as a “serial filer” who has pulled similar stunts in the past. Staci Zaretski of AboveTheLaw.com pulled copies of several other “fake” suits Riches filed and said he is well known among the legal community. Schacher also tweeted about Riches on Friday afternoon.

Riches is a convicted felon who spent 10 years in prison for wire fraud. He gained fame by filing a number of ridiculous lawsuits while he was behind bars. In addition to Manziel, he has taken “legal action” against Kim Kardashian, Michael Vick and The Gap. He once vowed to “flood the universe with more lawsuits.”

This guy is obviously a huge nuisance to society, and something has to be done about it. He makes the argument that the people he targets are all public figures, but the line has to be drawn. Wasting time and resources on a screwball like Riches is a shame, even if his latest lawsuit made us wet ourselves.

    He filed using another persons name. Wouldn’t that fall under identity theft?

    and by publishing this nonsense you have given him exactly what he wants and furthered the circus around manziel you in the media are always whining about. you could have just printed a disclaimer telling people anything they read about a lawsuit about manziel is fake and not believe it.
