Ridiculous, Silly, Frivolous Lawsuits

The ability to sue your fellow citizens is a cornerstone of civilized society, and our legal system has often functioned as the last resort for the most vulnerable members of this nation. To put it simply: suing the hell out of each other is a sacred American tradition. 


But some lawsuits are just effing dumb. These are those lawsuits.

  • Shayn Proler vs. Fire
  • Jimmie Dimmick vs. the Victims
  • Allen Heckard vs. Genetics
  • Jian Feng vs. the Truth
  • Stella Liebeck vs. Evil Corporate A-holes
  • Two Guys vs. One Inch (the Subway Suit)
  • Emile Ratelband vs. Rationality
