Historical Lawsuits That are Way too Weird.
The courts are always busy but you should know that ninety percent of the cases never end up in court. Besides the cases which are settled outside of court by both parties coming to an agreement, the rest are just tossed away. Even so, it doesnt mean some frivolous ones do not eventually slip through. Even though there have been crazy cases in court, there are some which are on the extreme. A normal adult will take a case to court just because he or she is failing on that sector while there have been cases of people suing because of their poor skills in math or inability to read. The lawyers who deal with such deserve a medal. Universal Studios was sued because of the clients was too scared. It started with the woman visiting Universal Studio for some Fun. Anyone who is familiar with the studio event will have heard of the Halloween Horror Nights which happen every year. You get to go to a haunted house. When you attend the party, there are creeps, gore and even murderers who will be there to scare you. Whether the woman chose to ignore that piece of information or not is still up for guess but she ended up getting scared to death with her granddaughter at one of these parties. The pair didnt get injuries but an encounter with a Leatherface actor was considered enough to make the woman go to court. This woman was asking for 15 thousand dollars from the Studios because of nightmares. The judge was not having it and the case was tossed out with a demand for her to purchase a nightlight.
If you are wondering how bad it can get then you should hear about the senator in Nebraska who decided God had to answer for 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. The senator wanted the court to rule for desist and cease against God. 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. He was reacting to local laws put in place to reduce the number of crazy lawsuits that were being filed.
Back in the 90s, the phrase jack a** shot to fame. This is thanks to a man named Jack A**. This led to Jack A** suing MTV owner for negatively affecting his life. The Jack a** could only be satisfied with ,000,000. He has done a name change to let more people know about the dangers of alcoholism. The chosen slogan id not even bear his name.
