LeBron's Mom Suit -- Valet's Lost 'Enjoyment of Life'

4/14/2011 2:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

LeBron James' mother Gloria James caused the valet she allegedly slapped last week to lose his "capacity for enjoyment of life" -- and now he wants $15,000 minimum ... according to his lawsuit.

TMZ obtained a copy of the lawsuit Rockfeller Sorel filed Tuesday in Miami-Dade County.  In the suit, he accuses Gloria of assault and battery ... during the incident at the Fountainbleu Hotel.

Sorel then breaks down a laundry list of "damages" he claims to have suffered -- such as pain, emotional distress, humiliation, mental anguish, and loss of capacity for enjoyment of life.

On top of all that Sorel says he needs cash for medical care and lost earnings.

Most ridiculous thing I've seen in a while -- it's too bad there are lawyers that will take on this nonsense crap.

So, can I sue the employer who laid me off because I lost my "enjoyment for life" due to stress from job hunting?

Normally, I would call this guy a big whiney baby, but because it involves this stupid excuse for a woman...I say KUDOS!! She thinks she is so above the law and she needs a nice lawsuit for her ghetto behavior! Not that his lawsuit will break the First National Bank of Lebron, but she deserves it! Also, gotta love her racist comment! Had that been the other way around all of the race cards thrown would have built a castle! I can't stand her! Her face makes me sick...nasty skank Blech!

This lawsuit is based on her intent, but since she was drunk, doesn't that impair her intent? It's why they charge drunk drivers with involuntary manslaughter instead of murder, because they didn't have intent to kill someone. If she gets a good lawyer, he/she can argue thst she was too drunk to have any intent and did not know her actions would cause him all his allegations. She can win. Furthermore, I think she should win because I hate money-grubbing famewhores who susptain no real damages.

So, LeBron James' mom wanted to slap the enjoyment of life back in the Valet Parker? Gives another meaning to bitch-slap... "I'll slap back into enjoying life if you don't smile"

This lawsuit is offensive to everyone who has suffered from real trauma and has PTSD as a result.

Why did he hire an unknown attorney?

Unknown attorneys start off from cases like this.

He can't be serious. Taking time off from work, going to doctors and all the rest of this garbage after being slapped by a woman. Just WHO does this guy think he's fooling? He's GOT to be a homosexual. No MAN would stoop to something like this. A MAN would have laughed it off and gone on about his business.

Granted, she's acting like high-priced trailer trash. Thinks she's something special when she isn't but this is just ridiculous. I don't think he needs to sue her. We're so sue happy in the U.S. I do think she needs some form of justice. I don't care who you are or who your son is or who you THINK you or your son is, you have no right. And I don't care if you were able to drive a Hummer while living on welfare when your assclown of a son was in college and being courted by the NBA. You still wipe your fat ass like everyone else!
