A group of Idaho inmates’ lawsuit blaming eight brewers for causing their lives of crime tops the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform’s (ILR) survey of the top 10 most ridiculous lawsuits of 2013.

Rickard. “Abusive lawsuits both big and small take a collective toll on our society and our economy. We should resolve to make 2014 a year where lawsuits are a last resort, not a first reaction.”  ILR compiled the “Top 10 Most Ridiculous Lawsuits of 2013” from votes cast throughout the year by visitors to The Faces of Lawsuit Abuse campaign is ILR’s public awareness effort highlighting the impact of abusive lawsuits on businesses, communities, and individuals.
