Short Description This lawsuit somehow merited two different court's time and effort to write opinions. Impressive. Plaintiff is obviously mentally ill, and sued Elvis Presley and Elvis Presley's estate (since he's dead), alleging to be Elvis's son, but also seeming to argue he is Elvis. He says he's been kidnapped, his death has been faked. As you'd expect, this is frivolous and was dismissed. - LSW
