Manuel Noriega? You Can’t Be Serious!

What we cannot believe is that he found an attorney to represent him and file this lawsuit!

The dethroned former dictator of Panama – who is in federal lockup for drug dealing, racketeering and money laundering – is suing Activision Entertainment for the “blatant misuse, unlawful exploitation and misappropriation for economic gain” of Noriega’s image in its “Call of Duty: Black Ops II” videogame! 

Noriega – known as “pineapple face” because of his heavily pockmarked complexion – is seeking punitive damages for “lost profits.” Lost profits from what? What product is Noriega producing and selling from prison that is losing sales to a videogame? 

The answer to our first question is Thomas Girardi of Girardi & Keese of Los Angeles.
