    Crazy Prison Inmate Sues Blizzard Over World of WarCraft Addiction No, officially it’s not a joke, but a real court case. So say you’re sitting in the slammer, (or the prison law library), killing time for wire fraud and you had a thought…”World of Warcraft is responsible!” According to Jonathan Lee Riches, World of Warcraft kept him from getting a “legit job,” by turning his obviously sharp mind, “into a living video-game.” So believe it or not, he is now killing his sentence filing rambling third-party motions to unrelated court cases. World of Warcraft Insider has reported that inmate Riches has indeed filed a third-party motion in the Blizzard vs. MDY Industries suit that was decided this past year. Riches claims, “World of Warcraft was responsible for causing (me) to live in a virtual universe, where (I) explored the landscape committing identity theft and fighting cyber-monster rival hacker gangs.” What next?? This doesn’t even begin to be Riches first trip around the ole’ block as he has also made the same claims against Grand Theft Auto 4 when he sued Rockstar Games earlier this year. Virtually Blind reports that Riches has also made time in his busy schedule to file motions against former President George Bush, Michael Vick, National Public Radio (though he doesn’t seem the type), Barry Bonds, the French Eiffel Tower, and Plato. Too bad he can’t get his sentenced reduced for originality. As far as his suit against Blizzard Entertainment and the World of Warcraft game goes, while IT may be the reason his mind turned into “a living video game” (perhaps a virtual lawyer as well), and caused him to “commit fraud to buy video games,” it looks like this particular motion will be dismissed. Apparently due to procedural grounds, guess you get what you pay for with those jailhouse law degrees. Guess he’d better stay with suing world famous monuments.
