The 13+ Dumbest Lawsuits in Recent History

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!

    Hellmann's Owner Sues Competition for Using the Word 'Mayo'

    Mayonnaise. You eat it. You love it. You can't eat sandwiches/live without it. But do you really know it? 

    According to Unilever (Hellman's parent company), federal regulators specifically define mayonnaise as a spread that contains eggs. Which is why they're not happy that a competitor is trying to pass off an egg-free version as the real stuff. The nerve!

    Hampton Creek's "Just Mayo" uses plant products instead of chicken eggs in its spread. Unilever contends that by calling their decidedly non-mayo product "Just Mayo," Hampton Creek is participating in false advertising and stealing the market share that is rightfully Hellman's. 

    "Consumers and cooks have an expectation that mayonnaise should both taste and perform like mayonnaise. Just Mayo does neither," the complaint states. BURN. 

    Hampton Creek CEO Josh Tetrick doesn't think it's a big deal. "Today it's mayo, tomorrow it's a cookie ... next year it will be pasta," he said. "Maybe we'll see big cookie and big pasta lawsuits against us next."

    Careful Tetrick, big mayonnaise is a $2 billion industry. This food fight's about to get real (mayo).
