FLORENCE, Ariz., Aug. 15 (UPI) -- A prison inmate currently residing in a correctional facility in Arizona has filed about 6,000 lawsuits and is seeking $10 trillion in cash or gold.

Dale Maisano has filed the majority of the suits about prison food because it allegedly hurts his stomach.

"Stop the torture and give me food that will not make me ill," he claims in one suit. "Daily I'm given a diet that causes the plaintiff to be severely ill," the 62-year-old wrote in another.

Maisano, who filed 249 lawsuits on Jan. 24 of this year alone, has specifically filed 5,813 federal lawsuits to date.

"I don't have any delusions I'm going to get that kind of money. I don't have any delusions I'm going to get any money," Maisano told the Tennessean. "A lot of them are just nuisance suits. We're trying to get our point across."

He is currently serving a 15-year sentence for aggravated assault.

"Inmate Maisano has access to appropriate health care and his diet needs are met," said Arizona Department of Corrections spokesman Doug Nick. "The sheer volume of the lawsuits he has filed and the financial demands he makes speak for themselves."

Maisano began filing the lawsuits, most of which are dismissed on the same day they are filed, in 1986.
