How Blackbeard’s ship and a diver with an ‘iron hand’ ended up at the Supreme Court
 
In January 2011, Rick Allen lost his left arm below the elbow and suffered second- and third-degree burns after a scuba tank exploded and caught fire in his garage. He spent three months in the hospital, two of them in a medically induced coma. But 10 months after the accident, Allen — the owner of Fayetteville-based Nautilus Productions — was back in the water, diving on the pirate Blackbeard’s ship. On Tuesday, Allen was at the U.S. Supreme Court as his lawyers argued that Allen and Nautilus Productions should be able to sue the state of North Carolina for copyright infringement. https://www.charlotteobserver.com/ne...237019034.html

So glad he's had the resources to keep the case going. The iron fist is an absolute bonus -- you just can't make this stuff up.
