08:04 AM ET 12.21 | Shaun Ellis is in hot water over a wintry problem. A lawsuit has been filed against Ellis by a Seattle Seahawks season ticket holder for an incident on Dec. 21, 2008, when Ellis picked up a large chunk of snow and tossed it at the fan before exiting the field at the end of the game. Robert Larsen filed the suit to the Kings County Courthouse in Seattle on Dec. 16 and is seeking damages stemming from past and future medical expenses, past and future loss of earning, partial impairment of earnings and earning capacity, mental and physical pain and suffering and a slew of other offenses related to the incident, according to the case documents.

I guess with the way the 'hawks have been playing, he felt he had to sue someone.

The fan actually caught the snow in the video, and did a dance with it for two minutes...

I'm sure it was tramatic.

Damages for mental and physical pain because of a snowball fight? Wow! It must have been one hell of a snowball or Robert Larsen is one hell of a sissy!

Only in America!

I'm sure his wife hits him harder.

That fan should be incarcerated for being such a wuss. He'll have more than a snowball to worry about..

Another money-grubbing attention ****!

She probably doesn't hit him AT ALL... if you catch my drift.

LOL. Drift caught.

Maybe rich people throw harder snow balls?

Thanks, interns for putting Rex Ryan's picture up for this story. I guess he's white and huge, like that snow chunk.

Frivolous lawsuits like this should not only be thrown out, they should be punished. The lawyer and the plaintiff both deserve to pay court expenses and fines, in addition to any legal expenses run up by the defendant.

Both the plaintiff and the lawyer should be forced to watch Seahawks games all next season.

If it's a "wife", WORD!

2 years after the fact? No doubt he's got some crooked hot shot d/bag lawyer.

If he had a beard, he could pass for Santa.

2008! Really. What a way to wait. It must have been terrible for the guy. As my dad use to say "You don't want to be in trouble. Don't be where trouble is." Especially since these guys where throwing snowballs at the Jets.

Probably saw Jenn suing Favre and wanted to get in on the money action. Apparently New Jeresy is a sue happy place.
