While the fantasy flick, Oz the Great and Powerful, has racked up big bucks at the Box Office — a real-life “Oz” may be forced to spend big bucks to fight a ridiculous lawsuit.
Apparently, TV doctor “Dr. Oz” featured a home insomnia cure in which he recommended viewers warm their socks in the microwave with rice inside. One New Jersey man claims he suffered burned feet as a result of this “cure” — and has taken Dr. Oz to court.
That’s just one of the lawsuits we feature in this month’s “Most Ridiculous Lawsuit” poll.
If you think this “Dr. Oz” lawsuit is crazy — just wait until you read more about our other nominees:
Man hit by truck on rotating platform in showroom sues auto dealer .
Shopper sues department store after walking face first into glass display.
Woman suing over “severe and permanent injuries” still able to complete half-marathon .
Which of these do you think is the most ridiculous?
Each month, we scour the news to find lawsuits just like these and present them as part of our Faces of Lawsuit Abuse campaign. We never find a shortage of crazy lawsuits to present, and we’re betting that the more Americans read about these ridiculous examples, the more they will clamor for reforms that make America’s legal system simpler, fairer and faster for everyone.
