A Man in Prison Files an $89 Billion Lawsuit

There was a NFL playoff game between the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys that had an overturned call that went against Dallas during the January 11th divisional playoff game. In the last minutes of the game, Dallas wide receiver, Dez Bryant made a spectacular diving catch about 1 yard shy of a touchdown. But, there was about 4 minutes left in the game and Dallas trailed 26 – 21 and a touchdown plus the extra point would have given Dallas a 28 - 26 lead.

The Packers managed to hold onto the ball to end the game. The catch by the Dallas player was challenged by the Packers head coach and the referees over turned the call saying, “'By rule he must hold onto it throughout entire process of contacting the ground… 'He didn't, so it is incomplete.'' A crazy and controversial call that’s about a rule concerning a football move…yada-yada.

Now a Dallas fan is so upset that he filed a lawsuit against the NFL in light of the disappointing outcome of the game, seeking nearly $89 billion in damages. Get this. His name is Terry Hendrix and he is an inmate incarcerated at Fremont Correctional Facility in Cañon City, Colorado. An inmate is suing the NFL for nearly $89 billion in damages. His claim is that there should be “compensation for, but not limited to, negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, and also reckless disregard.” Hmmmm,? WTF?

He sounds like he knows how to speak ‘legalese' because his position is that the video review and subsequent reversal constitutes “fraud” involving gross negligence” that caused “true injury” to the Cowboys. The odds of him being granted a hearing before the court are sure to be against him in a big way. Still, he managed to get his 15 minutes of fame. But, if by some chance his lawsuit goes thru and he wins $89 Billion, I think I’ll give my long lost cousin, Terry Hendrix a call,

I was reading about this the other day. He has a known history for filing bogus lawsuits, so I doubt very seriously that he will get it. I guess he figures that it does not hurt to try. LOL.

You're right. I probably should have included that important little tid bit in the article. Shame on me. Thanks for reading the post and truly appreciate the time you took to comment.
