Interesting and Amusing Tech Lawsuits

Usually lawsuits are very serious news and not to be laughed at. The tech industry has had its fair share of these more serious suits. However, we sometimes hear about ones that we can’t help but be amused by. This list of unbelievable tech lawsuits from the past 10 years is sure to tickle your funny bone.

Pentium Hives? – In 2002, a Dutch woman filed a lawsuit against the government and Intel because she said that she got hives from her Pentium processor. Her 486-base processor did not give her the hives however and no judge was “itching” to take the case.

Lead into Danger by Google? – In 2009, a woman attempted to sue Google for the poor walking directions she was given. She followed the directions onto a narrow dark highway that had no sidewalk or shoulder and was consequently hit by a car. Google “dodged” the lawsuit and the case was dismissed.

Up With Star Wars Galaxies, Down With Sony! – In 2010, distraught fans of the Star Wars Galaxies, a once highly popular MMORPG, tried to file a class-action lawsuit against Sony for shutting down the game. The case will likely never go to court. I guess the “force” was not strong with the litigious fans.

Woman sues man over a failed Mafia Wars romance – Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. After investing thousands of dollars on game credits and gifts for her boyfriend on Mafia Wars, the woman sued the man for the money spent when their romance finished. Her romance and her case are now sleeping with the fishes.

I hope these unbelievable tech lawsuits made you smile. If you have heard of any more, please share them with us by leaving a comment here or on one of our other social media accounts!
