Some people just want to watch the world burn! And some people just want to file lawsuits for everything! Here is a list of 5 lawsuits that you’ll hardly believe were actually filed!
Andrew Rector vs. ESPN, MLB, Yankees
Andrew Rector falls asleep at a Yankees game. The camera catches him sleeping and the camera crew has fun with that for a couple of minutes! What does Andy to? He sues ESPN, MLB and Yankees for defamation and presenting him as a “symbol of failure”. Jesus, talk about insecurities!
Kidnapper vs. Hostages
A convicted felon crashed his car into a newlywed couple’s lawn and entered their home. He took them hostage to delay the police. However, he fell asleep and was soon caught and shot in the back. He did not die, however; he sued the couple he held hostage for breaking a “binding, oral contract” that said he’ll be hidden in exchange for money.
Man vs. Earth For Ownership
This guy from Canada filed for ownership of ALL the planets, including Earth and the space between them, because he wants to “collect them like others collect hokey cards”. He’s filed 45 lawsuits since 2011 alone!
Husband Vs. Wife
Imagine you’re expecting your wife to give birth and she finally does! You take the baby in your arms, unspeakably excited only to discover he’s VERY…ugly. That’s what happened to this Chinese man who accused his wife of cheating on him. She had not, however; she, instead, had over $100.000 worth of plastic surgeries!! He sued her and eventually won $120.000!!
Woman Vs. McDonalds
This is insane. Long story short a woman, while in her car, orders a coffee from McDonalds. She then places the cup between her legs to pour the cream and the sugar; she gets coffee spilled on her. She sues McDonalds for the coffee being too hot and wins $160.000 in damages!! MOREOVER, she wins another $2.7 million in punitive damages!
Some people just file lawsuits for the slightest thing that happens to them! Well, now you know that there can always be worse!
