Sorry people, don't take it as a generalisation that you all suck, but I found this article in the paper this morning and couldn't believe it. Further adding to my thread a while back of a man suing the cable company believing it made his wife fat, I found this.
An American bank clerk has launched legal action - seeking millions of dollars - over Janet Jackson's breast-baring stunt on prime-time TV. The class action by Terri Carlin, 47, of Knoxville, Tennessee, could be the tip of the iceberg after singer Justin Timberlake ripped off Jackson's bodice to reveal her right breast.
The Broadcasters and makers of last Sunday's Superbowl show could be fined heavily, while sponsors are reportedly considering demanding millions of dollars back from the NFL.
The class-action - "on behalf of all Americans" - seeks "maximum" compensatory and punitive damages from Jackson and Timberlake, as well as CBS, which broadcast the event, and MTV, which produced the half-time show.
Unbelievable. I've said it before and I'll say it again, Americans will sue for anything.
