Life's Tough If You Work in the Legal System and Have to Hear These Cases

Enjoy this collection of the four most frivolous lawsuits in history (thanks All Things Mundane!)

In Michigan, a 27 year old man was the victim of a minor car accident. Several years later, the man sued the person who hit him claiming that the accident changed his sexuality. He said that since the accident he was no longer sexually attracted to his wife, moved in with his parents, and started frequenting gay bars.

In 1991, another Michigan man sued Budweiser for false advertising and mental anguish. Citing a commercial in which two women come to life for a couple of Budweiser drinkers, he was angry that he wasn’t experiencing the same fantasy. That case was dismissed.

A woman was watching the local news, where the weather report predicted sunny weather. She went out without a coat and got caught in a downpour. She subsequently caught a flu bug, missed four days of work, and had to buy some NyQuil. She sued for $1000 for that and mental duress.

A woman sued an Egyptian hotel because she claimed the swimming pool at the hotel got her 13-year-old daughter pregnant. She said that there must have been sperm floating in the pool because her daughter “did not meet any boys on the trip”. That daughter went on to win an Oscar for Best Actress.
