Man by nature is not just a greedy creature but can also quite ridiculous in his reasoning at times. But that does not go to say that he does not and would not make attempts at easy earning of money by duping others. And many have even taking the help of the law in trying to do so and have, unsurprisingly failed.
There are quite a few cases where people have tried to sue others for quite silly and absurd reasons. One of the most famous cases has been of the suing of basketball star Michael Jordon by a man named Allen Heckard for a whopping $832 Million in 2006 for the simple reason that people sometimes mistook him for the player and this, according to him, caused him much defamation and emotional suffering.
