A plaintiff in a pending disability lawsuit being caught on video knocking over a large, historic boulder tops the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform’s (ILR) “Top Ten Most Ridiculous Lawsuits of 2014” survey, which was announced today. ILR also released a highlight video featuring each lawsuit on the list. “This list puts a light-hearted face on a serious problem: As a country, we simply sue too much,” ILR President Lisa A. Rickard said. “In fact, the collective toll that abusive lawsuits take on our society and our economy is no laughing matter. Lawsuits should be a last resort, not a first option.”
The “Top Ten Most Ridiculous Lawsuits of 2014” included the year’s ten most popular stories featured in monthly polls on FacesOfLawsuitAbuse.org. The “Faces of Lawsuit Abuse” campaign is ILR’s public awareness effort, created to highlight absurd and ridiculous lawsuits filed against businesses, families, and communities across the U.S.
