34-year-old entrepreneur, Craig Zucker, was living the American dream. He created a product called “Buckyballs” which is a cluster of tiny high powered magnets marketed to adults as a desk toy. Even after stamping five hazard labels on the packaging, Zucker was targeted by the government and forced to dissolve his company and take his product from shelves because his product was deemed unsafe for children.
Yes, his company dissolved and Buckyballs were removed from sheleves, but that’s not the biggest story here. AFTER all that, Zucker is now being personally sued by the federal government…what?!
To pay for his legal costs, he’s selling “Liberty Balls” – which are basically giant-sized Buckyballs. He feels that the federal government taking out a personal lawsuit against him is a massive government overreach.
