Synopsis: Gathered from the popular Web site StellaAwards.com, The True Stella Awards is an outrageous collection of America’s most ridiculous and frivolous lawsuits.
Named for Stella Liebeck—the woman who spilled hot McDonald’s coffee on herself and then won a lawsuit against the fast-food chain—humorist Randy Cassingham’s popular Web site chronicles the hard-to-believe and amusing claims that have been brought before U.S. courts.
Now, for the first time in book form, The True Stella Awards presents some of the most outlandish and unbelievable-but-true lawsuits in America. Some of the Stella Award cases include:
-The man who legally changed his name to Jack Ass, and then sued MTV for $50 million because their TV show and movie Jackass infringed on his trademark and demeaned his "good name"
-The songwriter who left a minute’s silence on his record only to be sued by the estate of another songwriter who copyrighted his own "silent" song
-The man who sued an amusement park after being the victim of the ultimate "Act of God": he was hit by lightning while standing next to his own car in the parking lot.
About the Author: Randy Cassingham is the founder of the Web site StellaAwards.com and the weekly news site ThisIsTrue.com, which has a readership of over 120,000 subscribers. He is a former engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
