* Kim Davis- the Kentucky clerk infamous for attempting to prevent her entire office from providing marriage licenses by using "religious faith" as her defense (after the Supreme Court upheld gay marriage rights)- has tried and failed several times to get several levels of courts to support her religious rights to stop all licenses from being issued. She then decided to sue Governor Steve Beshear for failing to protect her religious liberty. Considering that every single appeal has failed because trying to effectively shut down a public office is ''not at all how religious liberty is supposed to work'', this probably would have failed too. However, Beshear's term ended in 2015 and the new governor, Matt Bevin, signed an executive order eliminating the county clerks' names from state marriage licenses. Davis has finally dropped the case since the point is now moot.

As such, Davis has finally dropped her suit and the case lawsuits against ''her'' have been dropped as well since the point issue is now moot.

* The use of frivolous lawsuits (and countersuits) has become the ''raison d'être'' of innumerable litigants, as seen above - but the 'sovereign citizen' movements, such as Posse Comitatus, Freeman-On-The-Land, and Moorish Law, take it to new heights, as described by an Alberta judge in the judgement for the 2012 suit [[http://www.canlii.org/en/ab/abqb/doc/2012/2012abqb571/2012abqb571.html Moore v. Moore]]. The judicial officer in question gleefully enters SarcasmMode at the start of the almost [[DoorStopper 200-page long document]], and the feeling that they're fed up with the whole situation doesn't let up at any point.

* Other people filed a lawsuit against McDonald's in 2016 over their mozzarella sticks not containing any cheese. It turns out overcooking the mozzarella sticks would cause the cheese to ooze out leaving only the outside breading.

** In the Aurora case, the families also sued Cinemark Theaters, who owned the theater where the shooting happened, because they failed to provide adequate security to prevent the shooting. That case not only failed, but Cinemark counter sued the family members of the victims to pay for the damages that the lawsuit caused them.

* Families of several of the victims of both the 2012 Aurora Colorado theater shooting and the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting have filed a lawsuit against Bushmaster, the maker of one of the firearms used in both shootings. The claims of both is that the firearms used in both occasions, a semiautomatic AR-15 is not legal for civilian use. The fact is actually that an AR-15 is legal for civilian ownership and use. There is also a law in America that prevents gun and ammunition manufacturers from being sued for criminal misuse of their products. In the case of the Aurora suit a judge threw out the case citing this law, but in the Sandy Hook case the suit was allowed to go forward because of the (false) claim that the AR-15 was not protected by the protection law because it is not a legal weapon. Only time will tell if this lawsuit does somehow go forward in the families' favor.

* When Creator/MichaelJackson released "Billy Jean", he was sued by a woman who was actually named Billy Jean Jackson, claiming the song had been written to mock her. why? She claimed she ''was'' his lover, that Jackson had married her, and also the mother of his first child. (Jackson never revealed who Blanket's mother was, claiming it had been a surrogate). She sued for £668 million (that's over a billion U.S. dollars) joint custody, and a say in Blanket's education. A blood test easily proved she was lying, so ironically, the lyrics of the song were AccidentallyAccurate when claiming "she's just a girl who says that I am the one".
