Fifteen of the kind of frivolous lawsuits that make you want to rip your hair out… including the guy who sued the family of the kid he ran over in his car, the A-student who sued to get an A+, and of course the inmate who tried to sue himself for $5 million.
Two well-meaning teenage girls in Durango, Colorado decided one summer night to bake cookies for their neighbors. They packaged the baked treats in plastic wrap with a heart-shaped message wishing the recipients a good night. When they knocked at the door of Wanita Renea Young, however, the woman became so terrified that someone was outside her house at 10:30 PM that she suffered an anxiety attack and successfully sued the girls for $930 to cover a trip to the emergency room.
