No, you can't have a dollar.

CNN is sued by some Chinese people over statements by commentator Jack Cafferty.

Cafferty derided Chinese "junk with the lead paint on them and the poisoned pet food" and said that "They're basically the same bunch of goons and thugs they've been for the last 50 years".

The plaintiffs' claim is that they're insulted. Unfortunately for them, Americans are protected by something called the Constitution which protects you from getting sued for a billion dollars for calling someone a goon.

I can't believe a lawyer took this case.
