What a joke. Suing over a broken tooth that he sustained 3 years ago and the dollar amount is crazy - $150,000.00. I broke a tooth on my lunch break at a restaurant once and another one while eating at a company BBQ, but I didn't sue.
This goes to show again how you can sue for anything now. This guy doesn't need this amount of money, plus you know he gets probably free health care and dental care for being a Representative so it's not like he is out of money. Again, as I have written before on different pieces, if something happens to you, you should sue then, not 1, 3, or 10 years later.
I also love how when people sue, the main amount they want is for emotional distress or in this case, "loss of enjoyment".
