Carreon v. The Oatmeal [Updated]

Here's the complaint, courtesy of Matthew Inman's lawyer, Venkat Balasubramani. Well, this is the caption. Although by filing this, the plaintiff has of course made all of his contact information public, I still feel the need to try to redact it before posting the full complaint. I'll do that shortly [update: done], but this at least proves it was filed.

Carreon v. Inman
It also shows that, to my continuing astonishment, he actually sued the National Wildlife Federation and the American Cancer Society. Although that may be because of this idea that he needs to "impose a charitable trust" on any funds in their possession, rather than because he claims they did anything wrong, it's still rather astonishing.

Update: Okay, I've uploaded the complaint. Click on the image to download a PDF. There are, unsurprisingly, some serious errors in this thing, in my opinion, in addition to the most glaring error of all: filing it. We (Ken and I, at least) are hesitant to provide too much analysis right now, in deference to Inman's lawyer and also in order not to educate the plaintiff as to what he has done wrong, in advance of the motion to dismiss that is looming over this complaint. This version does not include the exhibits, which evidently make the file quite ginormous. But most of you will likely be quite content with this version.
