Disinformation and Belief

Civil attorney Janice L. Jennings filed a motion against her opposing counsel in a Tampa, Fla., federal court. In the filing, she accused the other lawyer, John Campbell, of illegally placing a microchip in her head and torturing her with it, and asked that the judge order him to “cease and desist” doing that. “You’re saying something is implanted in your brain?” U.S. District Judge Richard A. Lazzara asked at the hearing. “In the area of my left ear,” Jennings responded. “And Mr. Campbell has been using that device to somehow subject you to torture?” the judge asked. “I believe so, your honor.” This isn’t the first time Jennings has had apparent mental health issues. In 2001, she reported that someone was entering her home at night and injecting her with hypodermic needles. When no evidence was found, she was fired. In a lawsuit at the time — where she served as her own attorney — the opposing lawyer wrote that Jennings “may not currently be able to distinguish fiction from reality.” Jennings is still listed as a lawyer in good standing, and is still representing clients in court.
