Historical Lawsuits That are Way too Weird.
Even though filing lawsuits is becoming very common now, only 10% of these cases will move to trial. Many of the claims are either rejected or settled out of court. From time to time, however, some absurd ones will make their way to court. Even though there have been crazy cases in court, there are some which are on the extreme. Some people will file a lawsuit because they are bad at math, they cannot read or just that they have failed to function as adults. It makes you applaud the lawyers who had to be in court for such. One of such cases is a woman suing because she was scared. The woman went to the studio looking for spooky fun. Anyone who is familiar with the studio event will have heard of the Halloween Horror Nights which happen every year. It is basically a glorified haunted house. When you attend the party, there are creeps, gore and even murderers who will be there to scare you. As it turns out, the woman ignored that piece of information and went to the party with her granddaughter and got the scare of her life. The duo did not get hurt but a Leatherface actor made them go to court. She said a $15,000 compensation would help with the nightmares she was getting. The judge asked her to buy a nightlight and that was the end of the case.
A senator from Nebraska State decided to file a suit against God because of natural disasters. This man felt that it was because of God that fearsome floods were happening, horrendous hurricanes, egregious earthquakes, pestilential plaque, and terrifying tornados. This mans fury did not just end there because he urged for a cease and desist. It was time for both parties to get free from each other. This is a man who did all that while sane and not under any substance influence. The senator was reacting to the passing of laws that barred frivolous lawsuits being presented to the court.
Jack a** was quite common in the 90s. It was because of a man who went by that name. He ended up suing the MTV owner for causing chaos in his life. He was ten million dollars as compensated. The name change was done to alert more people about alcoholism. The chosen slogan id not even bear his name.
