Recently, a Federal court ordered thousands of dollars paid to a man who sued after being stuck for a half an hour on the “It’s a Small World” ride at Disneyland in 2009.
In terms of one of the most absurd lawsuits on record, you can now forget the one where a lady spilled McDonald’s coffee on her lap and was granted almost $3 million in punitive damages because the coffee was too hot. This one beats it.
The Plaintiff, Jose Martinez was awarded $8,000 after having the “traumatic” experience of being stuck for 30-40 minutes in his boat and having to endure listening to “It’s a small world,” one of the world’s most wonderful songs, over and over and over and over again…Continue Reading & “Like It”
