Wacky Lawsuit - Pedestrian vs. Car


Wacky Lawsuit - Pedestrian vs. Car
« on: August 09, 2004, 01:28:26 PM »
When a small car stopped in a crosswalk and blocked his way, a St. Louis, Missouri, pedestrian became furious.  He climbed on top of the car and started jumping up and down - flattening the roof.  The driver later sued for $5 million, claiming that he was traumatized by the incident and was afraid to drive his car.  He was entitled to having his car fixed, said the court, but he did stop in the crosswalk, so the trauma was his responsibility.

[Some days, I feel like doing that too.] :)
