$7.2 Billion Law Suit for "Abusive Law Enforcement"

It's only marginally about civil procedure, but I am very amused by this whole lawsuit: R. Allen Stanford who is accused of running a "mini-Madoff" Ponzi scheme has filed a $7.2 billion lawsuit against a number of government officials for their behavior in investigating him.

Wondering what they did and why it's worth $7.2 billion?  AmLaw Daily reports here.
