Faces of Lawsuit Abuse has released its annual top ten most ridiculous lawsuits of the past year, compiled by polling its visitors.
Of its top ten, I would have voted for these as the top three:
My #3: Michigan woman files $5 million suit for the leftover gas still in her repossessed car
My #2: Anheuser Busch sued when longneck bottle used as weapon in bar fight
And my #1: California restaurateur sued for alleged disabilities act violations in parking lot he doesn’t own
Go here to see all ten, and how visitors to the site voted.
A few lawsuits listed in the site's monthly polls also struck me as particularly outrageous:
