Some of The Most Ridiculous Lawsuits Ever Filed

The courts are filled with frivolous lawsuits. It seems as if everyone feels they should sue someone for their own misfortune. Some lawsuits are so ridiculous that some of these plaintiffs deserved to be punished.



Man Sues Anheuser-Busch Because Fantasies Did Not Come To Life

In 1991, Richard Overton sued Anheuser-Busch for false and misleading advertising.  The complaint said that Anheuser-Busch showed misleading ads depicting fantasies of beautiful women in a tropical setting that came to life for two men driving a Bud Light truck. Mr. Overton also claimed that he suffered emotional distress, mental injury, and financial loss in excess of $10,000 due to the misleading Bud Light ads. He claims he was duped into believing that Bud Light would make his fantasies come true. The court dismissed the suit.

Haunted House Is Too Scary

In 2000, Cleanthi Peters sued Universal Studios for 15,000 claiming that the Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights haunted house was too scary. She said she suffered mental anguish and emotional distress from visiting the haunted house. Her lawsuit was dismissed.



Dog Killer sues Victims Owner

In 2003, Andrew Burnett sued Sara McBurnett claiming she had caused him to suffer mental anguish and post traumatic stress disorder after he killed her dog. Burnett filed the lawsuit while serving a three-year sentence for killing the dog in a road rage incident. He claimed that the incident had caused his suffering. The case was thrown out.

Inmate Claims NASCAR Is Responsible For His Crimes

In 2009, Jonathan Lee Riches filed a $23 million lawsuit against NASCAR claiming that the organization was responsible for the crime spree that sent him to prison. Riches said he stole credit cards to buy the products that were advertised on the race cars. He said that NASACR only wants him to purchase the products no matter what the consequences are.

Jell-O Wrestling Is Dangerous

A New York University student filed a lawsuit against the institution for his injuries sustained in a Jell-O wrestling competition. The lawsuit claimed the institution was negligent for allowing the competition to proceed. The judge threw out the lawsuit and the attorney said that this case “broke the mold”.
