Top Ten Dumbest Genuine Lawsuits

The Top Ten

1 New Jersey based writer Isabella Tanikumi sued Disney, claiming that the plot for "Frozen" is based on her autobiography. (£150,000,000)

Apparently both stories include two sisters who lived in a snowy town, whose relationship changed following a devastating event. I think that's all that Izzie and Elsa have in common. - PositronWildhawk

2 A man in Long Island divorced his wife and sued her for refusal to return the kidney he gave her eight years before. (£9,000,000)

You have a damn good case, bro. You were born with that flipping kidney! - PositronWildhawk

3 A man changed his name to Jack Ass in 1997 to raise awareness about the danger of driving drunk. He later sued MTV for plagiarism when the TV show Jackass was aired. (£6,250,000)
4 A woman sued her former fiance for breaking their seven-week engagement. (£111,000: £58,000 for pain & suffering; £37,000 for loss of income from her legal practice, and £16,000 for psychiatric counseling expenses).
5 A convict, who had been arrested after assaulting a man with his Nike trainers, sued Nike for manufacture of a potentially dangerous weapon with no warning label, and for production of the weapon which would lead to his sentence. (£60,000,000)

Pens can be dangerous too. I want a warning label for that. - Kiteretsunu

6 A man sued his recently divorced wife for birthing an "extremely ugly baby", claiming that a guy that good looking could not have fathered it. (£150,000)

Haha I agree, K. Narcissists everywhere will be cashing in!
Great list, Pos. - Britgirl

7 A man sued McDonald's after he allegedly suffered emotional distress when he was offered only one napkin. (£1,000,000)

This really shows the emotional attachment that some weirdos have with napkins. - PositronWildhawk

8 A couple filed a lawsuit against American Airlines for not providing sufficient leg room for their flight to Paris. (£63,000)

To be honest, as a tall guy, I would probably try a similar thing. No, I wouldn't. I'm not stupid. - PositronWildhawk

9 A 79-year-old woman sued McDonald's after spilling their coffee on her clothes, claiming it was hot enough to cause serious injury. (£1,700,000)
10 A high school student who fell asleep in class sued his school; he alleged he suffered substantial hearing loss when his math teacher smacked her palm down on his desk to wake him up while she was teaching. (£1,000,000)

I want to know the size of that palm. - Kiteretsunu
