Bizarre Lawsuits

March 18th, 2013

Lawsuits have become a common thing in law in the last few decades. You can practically sue anyone for anything. With the amount of rules and regulation, you are bound to break a few of them even without noticing. Here are a few lawsuits that you won’t believe are real.

The Chili Finger

The classic restaurant lawsuit, I found a human finger in my chili and now I am going to sue you for millions of dollar. Wait what that’s not the classic restaurant lawsuit but this did happen in an American Wendy’s fast food. In 2003, one Anna Ayala, found a severed human finger in her chili. The lawsuit she and her husband did got them some money but it was even more harmful for the public image of Wendy’s. A few years later after some investigations it was found out that it was all a big hoax and fraud. Anna and her husband had gotten the finger from a friend who had recently lost it in an accident. They had somehow managed to plant it in the food without detection. Well at least now they are facing charges of fraud and conspiracy.

What happened to my hair?

In 1996, Sydney, Australia, one Victoria Baldwin was getting a haircut on a warm July’s day at Synergy, a hair salon chain. When the hair cut was finished, Victoria was so enraged at the result she brought the hair salon company to court. She also notably said the haircut made her look like Hilary Clinton, which is a shame for everyone concerned. The result was so bad the court agreed with her and asked the salon to pay her up $750.

My beer brings all the girls!

In 1991, Richard Overton had an epiphany, since he was a grown man he was always buying beer and enjoyed drinking it. But what he had never noticed was how the commercials always portrayed the drinker with beautiful women. This had never happened to him so he decided to sue Budweiser for false advertisement. The court didn’t even bother with this one.

Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116 come here.

A Swedish family by the name of Hallins, refused to give their son a real name because of their beliefs in pataphysics. Their son was five years old now without a name, the Swedish government forced them to name him and so they did. After lots of name coming up they went with a lesser known one. Which was Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116, the Swedish authorities refused it once. The couple said the decision was theirs and this name was artistic. The government didn’t like what they had to say, they ordered them to change the name and pay 5000 konor.

Those were a few of the most bizarre lawsuits I could find but I am sure they are many many more.
