Lawsuit Over Lip Balm Named The Most Ridiculous Lawsuit of 2019

A lawsuit over the tiny amount of lip balm at the bottom of the tube glides to the number one spot on the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform’s (ILR) list of the Top 10 Most Ridiculous Lawsuits of 2019.

This year’s list also features lawsuits over labeling on vegan butter, the popular Fortnite video game, and a poster advertising the television show Dexter. ILR also released two highlight videos, asking people in New York City which lawsuit they thought is the most ridiculous lawsuit of the year.

“While lawsuits over lip balm, chocolate or ice cream are funny, frivolous lawsuits are a serious problem that affect everyone,” said ILR Chief Operating Officer Harold Kim. “A recent study found that the U.S. spends $429 billion on civil lawsuits—or more than $3,000 per household. That’s no laughing matter.”
