Americans are using lawsuits to spook businesses everywhere! From people going bananas over the copyright of costumes to haunted house visitors suing for being too frightened, Americans find every silly reason to sue. As a result, our judges are faced with unnecessary litigation as people try to make a buck over the ghostly reasons.
• Two companies went “bananas” over which one owned the rights of banana suit costumes.
• One homebuyer sued the previous owner when he found out his newly purchased Victorian mansion had three ghosts as roommates. Now, sellers are required to disclose if their home is haunted.
• A Wisconsin insurance company sued two inflatable companies for its 60-foot pumpkin caving in due to rainwater last October.
• A Floridian woman sued Universal Studios for being too frightened while at one of the theme park’s haunted houses.
• A Californian woman sued Just Born Quality Confections for not having enough Mike & Ike’s and Hot Tamales in their boxes.
We need to put an end to people abusing our civil justice system and clogging our courts with cases where no real harm is at stake. Let’s pour out the cauldron of potion that fogs our thinking. We must keep in mind the true intentions of our laws while encouraging our public officials to take a stance and push legislation that regulates frivolous litigation.
Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse (CALA) stands with thousands of Americans who are committed to putting balance and common sense back into our nation’s civil justice system. We’re dedicated to stopping lawsuit abuse that hurts families and threatens local businesses and jobs.
