In the nearly two decades I’ve been a lawyer, I’ve seen a lot of crazy things in court documents, but this is the first time I’ve ever seen a Plaintiff ask that a judge enjoin a Defendant’s penis. That’s right. Plaintiff Monique Greene, the young woman who accused rapper Nelly of raping her, filed an Amended Complaint in Superior Court of Washington this week. In her filing, obtained by Law & Crime, Greene added some disturbing background facts about Nelly’s alleged pattern of sexual assault, and then made a rather unusual request for relief from the court:
WHEREFORE, Plaintiff prays for judgment and relief against Defendant Cornell Haynes Jr. (Nelly) as follows:
For an injunction against Defendant Nelly (and his penis) that prohibits him from engaging in sexual assault against female fans after concerts using the unique methods and plans described above;
Weird, right? Even if Nelly’s penis were deemed a party to this litigation, it’s a little odd to ask a judge to order any defendant to do what simply amounts to following existing law. It’s already illegal for Nelly (or anyone else) to sexually assault female fans (or anyone else) after concerts (or any other time) using any methods.
