So many things go into getting into a good college – the long nights studying for exams, the hours of SAT prep courses, the finger-painting. . .
Finger-painting? To get into college? Most reasonable people would argue that preschools don’t have much impact on someone’s college prospects, but try telling that to the New York mother who is suing her daughter’s preschool for hurting the child’s chances of eventually getting into an elite Ivy League university.
The mother claims that the prestigious school wasted her 4-year-old’s time by making her spend some of her day in a classroom with younger children, so she’s trying to start a class action against the school seeking a refund on the annual tuition of $19,000 (yikes!). She might have trouble finding prospective class members willing to sign on to her lawsuit – other parents at the school have “had nothing but good experiences,” according to the New York Daily News article.
Is this the Most Ridiculous Lawsuit of the Month? Or is it one of these instead:
- Good Samaritan killed trying to stop thief; estate sues store he was robbing
- Ref sues writer over Tweet about “make-up calls”
- Woman claims shoes stick together; sues Adidas after fall
- Lawsuit says cruise ship went too fast
