“Senior sues because gum stuck to dentures”

by Walter Olson on October 5, 2011

Even as odd lawsuit stories go, this underexplained little account of a product liability claim in Canada stands out. Conceding that having to pick gum out of one’s dentures is not plausibly deserving of C$100,000, does the plaintiff at least deserve points for honesty in averring that her depression lasted only ten minutes?

C$10,000/minute seems a little steep to me. Could I have that itemized?

The first two minutes were the worst: they are worth 25k each, anonymous sources say.

Does this woman have a lawyer? It does not appear so. This post really belongs on Overlawyered’s stepchild, The PeopleFilingDumbClaimsNoLawyerWouldEverFile.com blog.
