McKinney Man Sues His Ex-Girlfriend for Defamation for Saying He Stole Her Xbox

One of the undersung virtues of dating is the ability to end a relationship without lawyers and protracted litigation. It's easier that way to make a clean break and move on with one's life.

Christopher Konvicka, a 24-year-old from McKinney, appreciates that fact less than most. He was dating a girl, Chelsea, and then, several months ago, they broke up. It's not clear why. These things happen.

On Wednesday, Konvicka filed a defamation suit against his former girlfriend. He accuses her of accusing him of stealing an Xbox from her Richardson apartment on June 5. Her two male roommates, whom Konvicka is suing as "John Doe 1" and "John Doe 2," joined in the accusations of theft.

Chelsea -- we're not giving her last name, because we had no way to reach her to get her side -- never filed a police report, at least not one that a Richardson PD spokesman could find any record of, and Konvicka was never charged with a crime. Rather, he says in the suit, they spread their "extreme and outrageous word of the theft to "personal and professional acquaintances."

And that was enough to inflict "emotional distress," "mental anguish" and a "loss of earning capacity which will, in all probability, be incurred in the future." He's seeking up to $100,000 in damages.

Uh oh. We'd best be careful about what we say. I can see Christopher demanding any information on us that he can get from the "Observer" and then suing us all, too. "Mommy, they're being MEAN to me! I want them all KILLED! You'll do that, Mommy, or I won't like you any more!"

He's worried about a "loss of earning capacity which will, in all probability, be incurred in the future" ? That reminds me of the joke about the difference between a hipster and a US Savings Bond: the savings bond will eventually mature and start earning money.

The ever-growing lawyer surplus in this country is the cause of this. Before the surplus, a competent lawyer would have laughed this guy out of the office. Even the slip-and-fall specialists would have counseled him to re-think his intent.

Really dude, perhaps his addiction to his Xbox and not her Xbox is why she is his ex girlfriend

I got sued for telling the truth that VR Business Group sells lien items which is Illegal TPC Chapter 31 Theft by Fraud and that the Lawyer who did it is now a Judge in Rockwall County and Judge William did not recuse himself. Everyday event in Texas lying that is

If an attorney filed this lawsuit on Konvicka's behalf you should publish his name as a warning to prospective clients.
