20. Robert Lee Brock vs Himself
Robert Lee Brock, an inmate at the Indian Creek Correctional Facility in Virginia filed a $5 million lawsuit…against himself. Evidently he had become so distraught overthe fact that he had gone out and committed grand larceny that he felt as though he deserved to pay that amount. The problem was, he didn’t have a job, so naturally he askedthe state to pay him for him.
15. Brian Delekta vs Michigan School District
Brian Delekta, a high school senior in Michigan, sued the school district to get his A changed to an A+. Apparently the class in question was a work study program that heopted to complete at his mother’s law office. After she gave him an A+ (big surprise), the school district changed it to a measly A. Why? Because that is the highest gradethey recognize. Maybe next time he can sue for an A+++.
10. RIAA vs Everyone
The RIAA or Recording Industry Association of America has filed tens of thousands of lawsuits since the turn of the millenium accusing people of sharing and illegallydownloading songs. While some of these claims have been legitimate, there are numerous cases like that of Gertrude Walton who passed away the age of 83 only to be hit alawsuit the following year. Apparently the RIAA believed her to be one of the piracy prone perpetrators despite her never even having a computer in her house.
