Bogus Lawsuit of the Day: Former Rams Player Suing Patriots over "Fraudulent Videotaping"

His lawyers must have been playing tackle football without helmets. According to the Wall Street Journal's new law blogger Dan Slater:
Lawyers for a former St. Louis Ram, Willie Gary . . . filed a complaint today against the New England Patriots and the Patriots’ coach, Bill Belichick. . . . The suit, a putative class action filed in federal court in Louisiana, seeks more than $100 million (that’s not a typo) for alleged “fraudulent videotaping” of the Rams walk-through practice prior to the 2002 Super Bowl. In addition to Gary, the putative plaintiffs are ticket purchasers and the 72,922 attendees of the Super Bowl.
