What is amusing is what he is asking for:
That's four million dollars.
Patrick thinks his personal reputation is worth four million dollars.
Keep in mind that, when I sued Patrick back in 2010 and the judge found that I had absolutely been defamed, and maliciously, I was awarded $75,000 (plus $10,000 in costs). And that was based on clear and unmistakable malicious defamation. Patrick, on the other hand, is convinced that he needs four million dollars to heal all that butthurt.
You can draw your own conclusions.
