There is so much wrong with this story, I don’t even know where to start.
Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla are the defendants in a lawsuit filed by an actor who suffered an injury during a radio promo. They want a dismissal – that hearig is supposed to be on the 19th.
Here’s one of the stupid things… They’re seeking dismissal as they’re claiming they were all served improperly. You know, ’cause receptionists don’t count. I bet you if they’d been jumped on the street to be served, they would have complained about that too.
Here’s a quote of the rest from the article…
The lawsuit-launching injury took place on Carolla’s morning radio show back on Sept. 27, 2006, when actor Perry Caravello appeared as a guest to promote the DVD of the Kimmel-produced TV movie Windy City Heat.Egged on by Carolla’s guest cohost and Jackass extraordinaire Johnny Knoxville, also named in the suit, Caravello, who starred in Heat, agreed to place his genitals in a mousetrap in exchange for a payment from Knoxville of $10 million.
Unfortunately for Caravello, and potentially any would-be offspring, the mousetrap unexpectedly snapped.
“Much to his emotional tranquility and to his physical harm, [Caravello] was severely injured when the trap literally went on his manhood,” read the $10.5 million fraud and negligence suit
filed by Caravello on May 31 of last year.
Adding further insult to injury, the incident was videotaped without Caravello’s consent and subsequently made its way online.
While Kimmel himself was not present for the manhood-smashing encounter, Caravello alleges the producer never ponied up a promised cut of the profits from the DVD’s sales. He also claims Barris, the warmup comedian on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, assaulted him without provocation before a guest spot on the talk show last year.
Knoxville did not submit a declaration seeking to be dismissed from the suit. It’s unclear if he will challenge the litigation at a later date or if he was properly served in the case.
Here’s a thought.
DON’T PUT YOUR GOODS IN A MOUSETRAP FOR ANYONE.
