John Luckett would argue that he’s had some bad luck in his lifetime and is merely trying to earn back what he is due. So, he has sued people once or twice. What’s the big deal?
This story might hold water if he were suing for things that were actual damages (instead of, say, suing for the possibility of hitting his head after falling) or had only filed “a few” lawsuits in his time (he has filed more than fifteen in the state of Nevada alone since 1998 and is considered a “vexatious litigant” barred from filing lawsuits in California). In short, even if he won’t admit it and might sue you for having said it, John Luckett is a master of filing lawsuits and, seemingly unrelated, pinball.
When Luckett visited the Las Vegas Pinball Collectors Club and found that his favorite machine, Xenon, was broken, he ordered the owner to have it fixed immediately. Though Luckett was offered a refund, this was evidently insufficient; an argument ensued, push came to shove, and Luckett fell to the ground. Though sustaining no real injuries, he has now filed eleven charges against the pinball club’s owner, Tim Arnold. Unsurprisingly, Luckett filed three other lawsuits in the same day against Gold Spike hotel, Goodyear Tires and Howard Johnson for equally frivolous claims.
Perhaps the weirdest part of it all: Luckett’s court documents are stamped “I Love Cats.” Wait, what? [Source]
