Attached to the suit are a couple of greeting cards. One of them says, "Remember how your life used to be so simple and stress-free? I'll never let that happen again." It's signed: "Happy Anniversary, Frank."

The complaint calls Longaker's actions outrageous and intolerable, but it asks only for a judgment against him... without specifying a dollar amount.
