Dupe? Yeah, probably. Man, it's wrong, though.
what a horrid, selfish, greedy man.
people like him should be put down. or at least stripped of their power.
but at worst Mcdonald should have paid medical and law bills. Not more.

The man who sued... a strip club for $100,000
In 1996, Bennie Casson of Belleville, Illinois, demanded $100,000 in compensation from a strip club after a dancer slammed her remarkably large breasts into his head causing what he described as a "bruised, contused, lacerated neck".
Susan Sykes, known by her stage name Busty Hart, boasted an 88-inch chest which supposedly caused him "emotional distress, mental anguish and indignity". The suit made Casson a laughing stock, and his case ground to a halt after one lawyer dropped out and he realised he could not afford another.
Three years later, he shot himself in the head."
.... until the last line.
pic of Busty Hart. i saw her on tv. her boobs are frightening.
how the hell did that happen?!
is the fact that the person responsible for bringing this is not some crackpot living in a double-wide, but a judge by profession. Christ.
you can sue anybody for about anything for any amount. IT DOES NOT MEAN YOU"LL GET IT!
The McDonald's thing was a fluke, as are the other's indicated.
Basically, there's an unwritten guide. "Oh, you've lost a finger..that's worth about $75,000," "You're parapalegic you'll get a million" and whatever. Anyway, it's not as crazy as everyone thinks. But people still think, I've slipped at McDonald's ..I'll sue them for $14 million. Not bloody likely. Unless, maybe, you have the coffee gal's lawyer.
