The Situation's Dad -- Served with Son's Lawsuit

5/21/2011 11:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Frank Sorrentino, the father of Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, was served with legal papers today as part of The Sitch's lawsuit against him ... and it all went down at a charity carnival, TMZ has learned. 

As TMZ first reported, The Sitch filed a lawsuit against his pops for that crazy website he created,, claiming his dad is illegally using his name and likeness. 

Frank got served legal papers while he was volunteering at a charity event in Delray Beach, FL -- which we posted a story about earlier this week, so we probably tipped The Situation off to his exact whereabouts. 

Sorry about that.

just because he was served with legal papers-not court do***ents or subpoenas-doesn't mean that there is any kindof case that can be one against him

more like cease and desist or else....

the 'or else' meaning the threat of court/legal action

freedom of speech/expression etc.
father is probably within his rights if the info is true

joey _ I love TMZ 'til ya piss me off!    

(Christopher) TITUS put it best in his new show, there is a part of his act on "late term abortion" and it refers to after you have been born, you have to see it, but I think it could apply in this situation.

I realize there was a pun at the end of my comment, but Webster's Dictionary had that word s(situation) long before
one of the untalented, overpaid, DB's did so screw him!

So let me get this right. Sitch's Dad is pissed cuz his son wouldn't help pay for medical bills. That being said, why would Sitch "sue" his own father (knowing full well he's broke)?! What an attention whore. I think I'll make a web site with NOTHING but his likeness on it and see if he sues ME. I'd love the exposure. What a f*cking moron.

Im laughing at these fools. I just wish that their fifteen minutes would hurry up and finish. Give it a few years and the these tools will be working as valet's or in the supermarket.

To Mike,
Wouldn't it have been cheaper to just give him some bucks? What the lawyers are going to cost is a heck of a lot more expensive than what he wanted! You may feel big and mighty cause you're making the bucks but you're an ******* and karma is a bitch! Remember karma when it comes to bite you!

This is the kind of thing that people who hit the lottery or become instantly famous have to deal with. There is always some relative with a hand out saying "gimme".

His dad is a bitch, an uncool bitch.

So every time I post a picture or make reference to a squeeze bottle full of vinegar and water I can get sued by "The Sitch" for illegally using his name and likeness? Clarification: I'm saying he's a douche.

I think they are both losers. Put them in a cage and let them fight to the death. Neither would be missed.
