Frivolous Lawsuits

A useful prop for bad legal reform

From time to time, we hear about a frivolous lawsuit, one that has no merit and is so absurd as to have little chance of prevailing. Such lawsuits are often filed as a form of harassment or retaliation, or as an attempt to get rich quick.


Here’s a few of the more ridiculous ones:

Richard Overton sued Anheuser-Busch for $10,000 over false advertising because he did not have visions of beautiful women on a beach after drinking Bud Light. He claimed the deceptive advertising caused him emotional and psychological distress. 

Austin Aitken sued NBC for $2.5 million because a rat-eating scene on Fear Factor made him vomit and run into a wall. The rats were pureed in a blender and then served to the contestants. Aitken claimed that he was so traumatized by the scene that he became disoriented and ran into the wall as he tried to leave the room.
