An American man has accused Google of "crimes against humanity", aiding terrorism, and violating his privacy.

The case has been rumbling on since last September when Pike County Correctional Facility "resident" Dylan Stephen Jayne filed a lawsuit against the web giant.

In his handwritten complaint he accused Google of putting his identity at risk and exposing him to danger.

How, you may ask.

He wrote: "I, Dylan Stephen Jayne, plaintiff, has [sic] a Social Security number that when the Social Security number is turned upside down in its entirety, it is a scrambled code that spells the name Google".

"A person, regardless of race or religion, that wishes to cause acts of terrorism would look for social security numbers that are made readily available on the public use databases."

The court was asked to declare that Google and its founders had conspired to violate Jayne's constitutional rights.

And Jayne asked for a mere $5 billion in damages, and for the first check, he would settle for $250 million.

He also wanted a gag order issued on all parties involved, the record sealed from the public, and all avenues for appeal denied, says Ars Technica.

When, funnily enough, one Judge James Munley of Pennsylvania wasn't having it and threw the case out after just 9 days.

And now the appeals court has done exactly the same thing.

But Jayne is not going to give up and some poor person in the Supreme Court of the United States could be reading yet another handwritten note at this very moment.
