The law has never been funnier or crazier--and this book (now in a brand-new format) contains the proof! In an age of litigation run rampant, lawsuits have become increasingly bizarre--not to mention downright silly. It may seen obvious that junk food makes you fat, or that if you fall into an ornamental rock garden it will hurt, but some people need a big warning sign. From convicted criminals to forgetful senators and gambling-crazy moms, everyone, it seems, needs protecting from themselves. Some chancers walk away with a big check, but readers can render their own verdicts on barely injured sports stars, warring neighbors, aggrieved former pet owners, angry husbands, furious wives, and kids who think, To hell with the inheritance, I'm suing Mom and Dad.
