Pro Se Plaintiff Allowed Right To Amend Claims

In the case of Raynor v. Comcast Corp., No. 24-1842 (E.D. Pa. May 6, 2024 Kearney, J.), the court addressed jurisdictional issues in a case filed by a pro se Virginia citizen who recently came to believe that he is God.

The Plaintiff swore that the 1998 film The Price of Egypt was the story of his life and that movie producers made the film without his permission. The Plaintiff sued Comcast Corporation and a movie studio under civil rights, copyright infringement and right to privacy claims.

The court found that the Plaintiff’s Complaint was deficient in many respects but allowed the Plaintiff leave of court to attempt an Amended Complaint to pled a basis for subject matter jurisdiction. The court also noted that, if the Plaintiff wishes to pursue a claim under civil rights law, more facts were required.

I send thanks to Attorney Walt McClatchy of the Philadelphia law firm of McClatchy Law for bringing this case to my attention.
