U.S. Chamber Releases Most Ridiculous Lawsuits of 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C.—A plaintiff in a pending disability lawsuit being caught on video knocking over a large, historic boulder tops the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform’s (ILR) survey of the Top Ten Most Ridiculous Lawsuits of 2014, announced today.  ILR also released a highlight video running down each lawsuit on the list.

“This list puts a light-hearted face on a serious problem: that as a country, we simply sue too much,” said ILR President Lisa A. Rickard. “In fact, the collective toll that abusive lawsuits take on our society and our economy is no laughing matter. Lawsuits should be a last resort, not a first option.”

ILR announced the Top Ten Most Ridiculous Lawsuits of 2014, which were the year’s ten most popular stories featured in monthly polls on FacesOfLawsuitAbuse.org. The Faces of Lawsuit Abuse campaign is ILR’s public awareness effort created to highlight absurd and ridiculous lawsuits filed against businesses, families and communities across America. 

The Top Ten Most Ridiculous Lawsuits of 2014 are:
