1980's Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega is suing Activision, the maker of the Call of Duty games, for depicting him as a murderer, war criminal, and drug dealer. And guess what - history indicates he was exactly that, and courts in various countries have agreed that he was indeed a murderer, war criminal, and drug dealer! Plus, there's that little thing called "free speech" that is still supposed to exist in America. I'm not a Call of Duty fan, but this must go down in history as one of the most frivolous uses of the legal system ever.
Course clear! You got a card.

i like what giuliani said about this: “What’s astonishing is that Manuel Noriega, a notorious dictator who is in prison for the heinous crimes he committed, is upset about being portrayed as a criminal and enemy of the state in the game Call of Duty. Quite simply, it’s absurd.” is noriega that far in denial?

if this means i can shoot noriega in the face in black ops 2, brb reinstalling that game's campaign

So what can be superior when compared with paying out half the price for brand name children?
wow, if brand name children are on sale, maybe i can stop buying all these cheap knockoff children

OK... even I'll admit that the Oakland Raiders' performance might be a valid reason to use the interesting words.

Frivolous indeed.

This just seems like pure greed, and from a known lunatic.
