Oprah can relax, $1 trillion lawsuit is dismissed

In the era of Twitter and other instant communication channels, it's amazing that a $1 trillion lawsuit against Oprah Winfrey slipped by most everyone's radar.
Then the National Enquirer reported that a poet named Damon Lloyd Goffe had filed an audacious complaint claiming copyright infringement. Only problem was that Goffe never registered the copyright on his poems, and more than a week before many news outlets were reporting the $1 trillion lawsuit, a judge had already dismissed the complaint for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.
Playing catch-up, news outlet WENN contacted Oprah's spokesperson, who said, "We were never served with this lawsuit, but we've been informed that the judge dismissed it."
That makes all of us.
