In the land of frivolous lawsuits, one man is taking a hard line with BMW, suing the company for giving him a 20 month erection.
The cause, insists, Henry Wolf of Sausalito, isn’t because of the beautiful lines of the new BMW M5, but rather because of his 1993 BMW motorcycle.
The suit, filed in California Superior Court in San Francisco last week charges that both BMW and seat maker Corbin-Pacific are to blame for Wolf’s “severe case of priapism (a persistent, lasting erection)” that began in September of 2010 after a four-hour ride on his 1993 BMW motorbike.
According to the suit, Wolf, “now is unable to engage in sexual activity, which is causing him substantial emotional and mental anguish.” Wolf is looking for compensation for his distress, discomfort, medical expenses and even lost wages.
