Faces of Lawsuit Abuse

A lawsuit over the tiny amount of lip balm at the bottom of the tube glides to the number one spot on the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform’s 2019 list of the most ridiculous lawsuits.

Every year, thousands of frivolous lawsuits are filed across the U.S., but only 10 make ILR’s annual list.

This year’s list includes lawsuits over labeling on vegan butter, Popeye’s chicken sandwiches, and a poster advertising the television show "Dexter."

ILR asked followers of the Faces of Lawsuit Abuse Facebook page to pick which lawsuit they thought was the most ridiculous. People were most chapped by a woman who sued Blistex, claiming the lip balm isn’t actually .15 ounces because it’s hard to get the balm at the bottom of the stick.

ILR also released two short, fun videos asking people in New York City which lawsuit they thought is the most ridiculous lawsuit of the year.

 Check out all the videos for this year’s most ridiculous lawsuits at FacesOfLawsuitAbuse.org.
