We live in a litigious world and, more importantly, one filled with scam artists and cry babies looking for any stupid excuse to blame their mistakes, problems or minor shortcomings on large companies or the government. People will sue at the drop of a hat these days, but what are the dumbest lawsuits of all time? From spilled coffee to a Michael Jordan lookalike, the dumb legal cases on this include some pretty funny, if absolutely crazy claims.

One man on this list tried to sue HIMSELF and then talk the government into paying the rewards he owed... himself. Sometimes though, it isn't the large companies being sued, they're the ones doing the suing. Viacom even sued a dead woman in connection with illegal downloads. Because that makes sense.

Here are fourteen stupid court cases that will make you want to sue the pants off of someone instead of, you know, "working." They may be sill lawsuits, but many of these plantiffs actually managed to win their case and collect some major cash in the process. All those dollars may just be the best reasons to actually go to court. Check out the stupidest cases in recent history below!
