Woman suing Disney for chip it allegedly planted on her

Posted Friday, April 17, 2015 8:06 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Julie Lynne Hooker claims a chip made of rubber material has been implanted inside of her without her knowledge or consent by the Walt Disney Company, according to a complaint filed last month in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Seems like a logical next step to compensate for the cost overruns on the current MyMagic+ system, what with no more need for the bands. My skin sometimes gets itchy from the Magic Bands anyway. ;)

FL and WV, vying for the crown.

Note that the woman, Ms. Hooker, is acting pro se. As the phrase goes, she has a fool for a client and an idiot for a lawyer....

Of course, it's also likely that no attorney, not even in FL or WV, was willing to take the case on a contingency basis...

That, plus seeing where she lives, there might not be one for fifty miles as the crow flies.

She literally is "taking the Mickey," (as we say over here) :)

She ain't my cousin, so she must be related to Krouse or Vater.

Or is this Tina...

Sorry, I just moved to the state 2 years ago and live 300 miles from this nutjob.

So what you're saying is she's your cousin on your mothers side?

You said "ain't", so I figured she was related to you.

She clearly forgot the single most important Disney park accessory.

The story really doesn't give a lot of info, but from what I know about RFID chips, the ones encased in rubber are not made to be embedded into the skin. The chips encased in glass are normally the kind embedded under the skin.

I would love to know what this lady's story is. Is she crazy? Does she have some kind of story that may actually be believable? Maybe she was approached by someone who asked her if she wanted to make $5, was lead into a room, and before she knew it she was being chipped. It could happen.

But I seriously do not think she knows what she's talking about. Fear of this technology, combined with her possible confusion of how it works, could contribute to her delusional ideas that she was embedded with an RFID chip against her will. I suspect that this has to do with her not understanding how MyMagic+ works.

As far as WV is concerned, She lived 50 miles north of Charleston and I lived 50 miles south, still nearly the same area. Not everyone there is backward, but there are a lot of them. Some people living in the rural areas of WV don't even see another state, let alone get to go on a trip to Disney. The outside works can be a scary place to these people. I'm not describing everyone in WV though. There are a lot of almost normal people there too.

It's the long-rumored chip the government was going to implant in everyone...

Thanks, Obama.

Nope! It wasn't me or any of my cousins. ;-)

I don't know whether to laugh or cringe after reading that article.

No. But it does set the standard.

My wife has a crazy old aunt who won't go to doctors because she believes that they inject tracking chips through syringes.

But when, at any point in a visit to Disney, would you ever be in a position to have something implanted in your body? And where exactly was it implanted?

The Stitch thingy at Magic Kingdom. They gas you with his farts and, uh, insert it then.

This stuff does happen. The chip gets implanted between the thumb and pointer finger. We know that Disney has a relationship with RFID chip manufacturers because that's how their Fastpass+ bracelets work.

The lady is probably bananas and nuts, but I'm not discounting her story until I know more. This technology is real, and Verichip has been known to approach people asking if they would like to be implanted with the chip.
