Gimbernat's Ligament


The mystery of Gimbernat's Ligament must be solved!
A gentleman named Antonio Gimbernat sued the federal government, ultimately going to U.S. Court of Federal Claims with an array of charges and a demand for $100 million. Many charges revolved around his 1987 discharge from the Navy. Mr. Gimbernat contends he was "singled out" by a Navy company class leader and at the age of 17 was "forced to call himself a homosexual;" in time, he said, this treatment caused "severe emotional and mental harm...dependence on alcohol, drug abuse, and numerous altercations with law enforcement."
But that's not all. Mr. Gimbernat further claimed he was "entitled to receive “inheritance royalties” due to his ancestor’s discovery of “Gimbernat’s Ligament.” Which sounds like it could be the next DaVinci Code, doesn't it?
Claims Court Judge Emily Hewitt didn't touch that one and, in fact, dismissed in her new ruling the entirety of Mr. Gimbernat's suit.
The very useful web site http://www.whonamedit.com
sheds a bit more light on this Gimbernat's Ligament, which evidently honors a Mr.
Don Manuel Louise Antonio de Gimbernat y Arbos
who is a 17th century gent; like I say, this Hollywood should snap this baby right up...

From Antonio Gimbernat on 5/29/2011:

"I've been Working on my E-Book Screenplay Website www.StoneytheSailor.com. I was so excited to make my First Sale to One of my High School Classmates; But I was charged a FRIVOLOUS Processing Fee by Intuit.com's Merchant Account Dept., so they intercepted the Payment in Cyberspace before it even touched my Account! I'm SO GRUMPY ABOUT THIS! This is an Issue of SUSPICION OF FRAUD VIA FALSE PRETENSES & Business Ethics. Anyways... everything is still on track & still looks promising. We will see what the Future Reveals. Sincerely with Aloha, Antonio Gimbernat."
