People will try to sue over anything they can. After all, it’s easy money, right?
Just ask the lady who successfully sued McDonalds when she was burnt by their coffee.
In some cases this might work, but often these lawsuits don’t go anywhere.
Perhaps the shortest lived case was brought to court by Janine Sugawara of California in 2009.
She claimed that she had purchased the cereal Cap’n Crunch with Crunchberries because she believed “crunchberries” indicated she was eating real fruit.
Sugawara alleged that after four years of purchasing the product she had only recently discovered that said “berries” were in fact simply brightly colored cereal balls.
Judge Morrison England, Jr.’s response to this was pretty on point.
He said “In this case…it is simply impossible for Plaintiff to file an amended complaint stating a claim based upon these facts. The survival of the instant claim would require this Court to ignore all concepts of personal responsibility and common sense. The Court has no intention of allowing that to happen.”http://ift.tt/1uHX7Wl
