Woman Wins $900K From Guy Who Gave Her Herpes

Reason to wear a condom No. 437: Giving someone an STD can be really expensive. A 49-year-old Oregon woman won a lawsuit last week against the 69-year-old man she says gave her genital herpes on their fourth date, the Oregonian reports. The jury awarded her $900,000, almost the entire amount she’d been asking for, declaring that the incident had been 75% the man’s fault. “We all felt he should have told her—he had a responsibility to tell her,” one juror said. The plaintiff claimed the man had agreed to use a condom, but changed his mind at the last second, and only mentioned the disease afterward. Read more …

Woman Sues Over Loud Roommate Sex

loud sex

Most of us either have already experienced or will eventually experience the roommate who is just a little too open with their sex lives. I have definitely been kept awake by muffled moans, creaking beds, dirty talk and noises that cannot be defined while sharing a place with someone else. One of my friends even told me that she walked in on her very skinny male roommate while a rather voluptuous woman was gagging him.

Most of us are willing to put up with the occasional roommate sexcapade. But one Massachusetts college student says she has had enough — and she sued for $150K. Keep reading »

Men At Work Sued For Plagiarism, 28 Years Too Late

Watch Video

According to the High Court of Australia, the band Men at Work got famous by stealing another’s work. Two years ago, the band was sued for copyright infringement by a company called Larrikin Music. Larrikin claims that the flute riff that is the backbone to the band’s hit, “Down Under,” was stolen from a popular kid’s song called “Kookaburra Sits in the Old Gum Tree.” The song was written more than 70 years ago by a teacher named Marion Sinclair, who passed away in 1988. While Sinclair didn’t made a stink about the likeness when he was alive, now that Larrikin Music owns the rights to his song, they decided to bring the case to court. As the victors, they will be able to seek royalties made on the song from 2002 on. Only someone should probably tell them that this song was the height of popularity …  in 1983. They kind of missed the boat on this one. [Huffington Post]

Today In Terribleness: Kids, Dad Gang Up To Sue Mom For “Bad Mothering”

Michael Lohan ain’t got nothing on Kimberly Garrity in the bad parenting department.

She even forced one of her kids to wear a seat belt.

Clearly you can understand why her two children, Steven, 23, and Kathryn, 20, sued Garrity for $50,000 citing “bad mothering.” Keep reading »

Forever 21 Wants To Shut Down Blogger … For Making Fun Of Forever 21

It’s often the biggest companies that have the tightest reign on their public perception — and inexpensive clothing company Forever 21 is no exception. Despite their public image of being young and fun (and, oh, totally Christian), the company is really, really up in arms over WTForever21, a funny blog that chronicles the hits and misses that come out of what blogger Rachel Kane calls the “shame factory.” Forever 21 sent Kane a cease and desist letter in April, claiming that she was violating copyright and trademark laws, even though Kane clearly states on the homepage, “Just FYI, The term ‘Forever 21′ is a trademark of Forever 21, Inc. This site is not affiliated with Forever 21, Inc.” Keep reading »

Model Sues Estee Lauder Over Bad Photoshopping

We know that virtually every image we see in print has had a little Photoshop magic worked on it, but it’s easy to forget just how much. Former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Caroline Forsling is here to remind us. She is currently suing Estee Lauder over an ad she appeared in for Origins Plantscription, an “anti-aging serum.” The stuff is meant for mature skin—but Forsling is only 35. The ad shows Forsling’s face without makeup, one side supposedly treated with Plantscription and the other side without it. Check out the ad above on the left. On the right, the way we’re used to seeing Forsling.

She is calling foul. Keep reading »

Mike Tyson’s Tattoo Artist Suing Over The Face Tatt In “The Hangover 2″

The Hangover 2” opens this weekend, and apparently there is someone besides Mel Gibson who will not be eagerly waiting in line with a bucket of popcorn to get a good seat. In the movie, Ed Helms wakes up in a bathtub and discovers that he has a poorly done tribal tattoo on his face. The joke, of course, is that Mike Tyson—who makes a cameo in the original movie and its sequel—has a much better version of the same tattoo. However, Tyson’s tattoo artist, S. Victor Whitmill, is not amused. In fact, he is suing Warner Brothers for copyright infringement. Keep reading »
