Julian Assange can add yet another lawsuit to his seemingly ever-growing list of legal concerns, although this one seems considerably less threatening than most.

As Newser is reporting, Florida resident David Pitchford alleges that he's been suffering from serious depression, higher hypertension and extreme anxiety since WikiLeaks began the release of 250,000 confidential U.S. documents in late November.

Hoping to receive $150 million in damages, Pitchford's typo-laden, handwritten documents say he's "in constant fear of being stricken by another heart attack or stroke" as he now believes the world is "on the brink of Nucliar WAR."

According to Switched, Pitchford previously filed suit against Osama Bin Laden, but that case never got off the ground.
