#16 From the same web ........

Abusing the Courts to Further an Agenda -- A "reality" show on the Science Fiction cable TV network features a "Voodoo Priestess". But a special interest group says she's not really a Voodoo Priestess, but merely a priestess of "Yemoja in the Ifa tradition". Oh, the horror. It sues SciFi, demanding the court order it to change its "advertising and content". § Lawyer reads that "trans-fats" are bad for you, so he 1) starts a non-profit informational organization, 2) sues one snackfood company that uses trans-fats, demanding that they stop selling one product to children in California, and 3) drops the suit very quickly, saying his non-profit's web site has received enough publicity. § Animal rights activist wants to stop city children from going to the rodeo -- as the free guests of the rodeo itself -- so she sues. Shouldn't the kids' parents decide what their own children should see? § Musician sued for copyright infringement because he tongue-in-cheekily attributed a blank section of an album to another musician. "I certainly wasn't quoting his silence," he said. "I claim my silence is original silence." Perhaps in the world of lawsuits, such a claim makes some sort of logical sense. § Since the "Beltway Snipers" have been caught, the search for deep pockets to endow the bank accounts of the victims and their families has started. First up: the manufacturer of the gun and the store where it was apparently stolen from. § California says dry cleaners contaminated the water supply, so they sue. Not current dry cleaners, mind you, but elderly people who retired from the business 30 years ago. Oh, and people who have bought the buildings that once, long ago, had a dry cleaning establishment in it. § Adult gets drunk at party, drives away and is killed in car crash. Who's to blame? Not the drunk: His girlfriend, for allegedly letting him drive. His girlfriend's mother, for buying the car for her daughter. The owner of the house the party was in, even though he wasn't there. The girl who rented the house from him. Oh, yeah: and Coors Brewing Co., who made the beer. § Zoo officials decide to move elephant to different zoo to put her with her own kind. But that would interfere with a "special relationship" she has with an elephant of a different species, woman says, so she sues to stop the transfer.

Man uses restroom stall in city building that doesn't have a door knob. When he sticks his hand through the hole, he gets hurt -- and, of course, sues. He wins almost $3 million. His occupation? City claims examiner.

Attorney cleaning his pool decides to knock palm frond from overhead electrical wires. When he's quite naturally electrocuted, his wife knows who's to blame: the electric company and the company who sold him the pool skimmer, of course!

Man says he is having heart attacks and got diabetes because he's obese. Why is he obese? Because McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's and KFC failed to tell him that he shouldn't eat their fast food multiple times per week. Meanwhile, a federal judge throws out a similar case filed by obese children, but legal observers warn that's not the end of the issue.
