Did you know you can sue for anything? I mean, anything? Well, of course you did. This is America. Land of the free. Home of the litigious. And somehow, someway, one can always find a brave lawyer willing to tie up the courts with asinine lawsuits.
Take this one by the family of George Cardel. George had a heart attack in Queens, New York, and died, and I’m sorry for the family’s loss. But now I just get angry. George’s dream, apparently, was to donate his body to science. That’s a noble cause. But since George weighed 300 pounds, science decided it couldn’t do anything with George’s body. Gee, that’s a shame. So George’s family decided to sue the hospital where George died for $2 million because of — get this — “grave humiliation.” Yes, grave humiliation. I’m not making this up.
