Lawsuit Madness


Faces of Lawsuit is a project of the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform. These were the contenders for their 1st Annual Most Ridiculous Lawsuit of the Year Poll:

January - Woman crashes on curve, sues county claiming 10mph speed limit was inadequate warning

February - Customer sues restaurant chain after toilet paper rolls from "unreasonably dangerous toilet paper dispenser" fall onto his hand

March - Illegal immigrants sue rancher who stopped them on his property at gunpoint and turned them over to the Border Patrol

April - Tourist sues New York club after she slipped while dancing on top of the bar

May - Woman microwaves hair removal wax, spills it on herself, and sues manufacturer for "placing such dangerous products into the stream of commerce"

June - Inmate sues to avoid being named world's most litigious person

July - Double-murderer sues to claim his victims' classic Chevy pickup

August - Tourist sues hotel, claiming swimming pool got daughter pregnant

September - Dolphins splash, woman sues

October - Wife kills husband, sues for his pension's survivor benefits

November - Neighbor sues woman for smoking in her own home

December - Holocaust denier sues Auschwitz survivor, alleging memoir contains "fantastical tales"

After reading this I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Where is the public outcry? When are we going to stop lawyers from bringing suits of this sort? What risk management program will work when people take no responsibility for their own behavior?
