Ridiculous lawsuits have become commonplace in the U.S., and here’s one of your more frivolous ones.
Brandon Vezmar, a 37-year-old resident of Austin, Texas, has decided to sue a woman he recently took on a movie date to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 because she texted too much during the film.
Vezmar said he filed a claim in small claims court for $17.31 (the price of a ticket to a 3D showing of the movie) because the woman, who wished to remain anonymous, read and sent text messages at least 10-20 times in 15 minutes.
When Vezmar asked her to step outside of the theater to do her texting, she reportedly walked out and left him there without a ride.
The two later had a heated text message exchange about the incident, in which she summed up the situation perfectly.
