Dumbass of the Week: Legal Edition

I saw this news item on the TV screen in my office building's elevator and had to share. "Lawyer files $65.5M suit against dry cleaner who misplaced his pants"

Isn't it a little late for April Fools Jokes?

Aside from the obvious lawyer jokes, this opens up a whole new world of opportunities for copycat crackpots. Maybe I can sue the deli for $58M because there wasn't enough mayo on my sandwich? Can I drag the MTA to court because some screaming kid disrupted my morning commute? Will I be able to sue God for making it rain today? I think God owes me about $92M (for residual mental anguish over last week's rain) I'm calling my lawyer. (source: USA Today)
