Man sues Pepsi for not giving him a jet in exchange for Pepsi Points
In 1996, Pepsi had a commercial that encouraged people to drink the soda so they could collect points and trade them in for merchandise. John Leonard wanted the Harrier jet the commercial said was worth 7 million points, so he bought points from PepsiCo for 10 cents each and mailed a check for $700,008.50 (the $8.50 was for shipping) to the company. Pepsi wasn't prepared to give Leonard a jet, so he sued for breach of contract, fraud, and misleading advertising. The suit was rejected in federal court.
Kid sues school for an A+
Brian Delekta got an A+ during a work experience class he took at his mom's legal office in 2003. But the school put an A on his transcript because they didn't give out A+'s.

He also demanded he get an A+, and for a "restraining order" against class rankings.
Women sues Google Maps for bad directions
On a walk in 2010, Lauren Rosenberg's Google Maps directions told her to go half a mile down Deer Valley Drive in Park City, Utah (a.k.a. Utah State Route 224).

Man sues library for his dog's dignity
In November of 2000, a man and his dog went to a library in San Marcos California and an altercation broke out - between his dog and the library's resident cat. Naturally, the cat won, and the man sued for $1.5 million. He filed not because a little kitten beat up his 50-pound lab mix, but because of the emotional trauma he suffered by seeing the altercation. The case was thrown out. A resident cat? Dogs visiting libraries? Sometimes it's best to just leave our precious pets at home.
