1. In the first place among the most ridiculous accusations to the court process is a man from Michigan. Richard Overton sued Budweiser. He was disappointed that, after drinking the famous beer was not surrounded by women, as seen in the ad. Man sought damages worth 10,000 dollars.
In the ad, two beautiful women appear in front of two truck drivers as a reward because they drink beer. The man repeated the scenario at home and, surprise, the girl’s haven’t emerged. Upset, he sued Budweiser.
2. At the beginning of the 90′s, Budweiser aired a series of commercials in which many attractive women, in sexy outfits, materialized out of nowhere in front of truck drivers who settled their thirst by drinking the Budweiser bear.Truck Driver Richard Overton was very impressed by the commercials, so he went out and bought a bear and waited for the sexy women to appear. However, nothing happened so the man decided to sue Budweiser for emotional damages caused by fake advertising, asking for 10.000 dollars in damages.
3. Another strange case is that of a judge who sued a laundry because they have lost his pants. The man asked for damages worth 65 million dollars. The judge states that the loss of pants caused him “mental suffering, discomfort and inside imbalance”.
4. Neither the mayor of the Turkish city Batman didn’t from this top. He sued the company Warner Bros., because they used the city name in the Batman movie “Black Knight” without permission.
5. In 2008, a married investment broker in his 30s sued a midtown strip club. Stephen Chang claimed in court papers that he was at the Hot Lap Dance Club near Madison Square Garden in Manhattan alone and was getting a paid lap dance when the accident occurred. According to the lawsuit, as the dancer swung around, the heel of her shoe hit him in the eye, causing him “to sustain serious injuries.” The lawsuit claimed the club “and/or its employee” were “negligent” for her “suddenly swinging around” and his lawyer says Chang sustained “serious injuries.”
6. A 27 year old New Yorker is suing Subway because he took a bite of a sandwhich and found a 7 inch knife baked into the bread. The knife did not cut him and he did not swallow it. The reason he is suing is because he was violently ill with “severe stomach issues” for three hours and he claims that he caught food poisoning from the handle of the knife which was plastic and, according to the man, filthy. He is suing for $1,000,000.

10. For a while in the 1990s, Anheuser-Busch, the producers of Budweiser, ran a series of ads in which two beautiful women come to life in front of two truck drivers. A Michigan man bought a case of the beer, drank it, and failed to see two women materialize. Cue the lawsuit. He sued the company for false advertising, asking for a sum in excess of $10,000. Thankfully the court dismissed the suit and the man remained penniless and dateless.
