It may be farcical, but this isn't a joke. See the PDF at Freed v Haynes.

I think injured parties should have the right to payments for their loss and suffering, but this is near the top of my list for frivolous lawsuits. What a dork. ;)

Well Lockwood, we can certainly agree that this is frivolous, and I'm with you to a large degree regarding the right to sue for loss or damages. Unfortunately too many Americans see the tort as a well of fortune. Even a good system loses effect when it becomes too susceptible to abuse.

Of course the right's answer is to eliminate torts, which is also a bad system. Difficult to walk the middle in this debate, but we can agree that this particular case is an attempt to abuse the system, I think.

Wow. He sues because of discomfort most likely caused by buying underwear a size too small? Well, my eyes enjoyed their little roll around the place..
