#8 Intel Caused Itch



Intel got sued literally over itch. The Dutch lady sued the chip making company for getting her skin rashes. She blamed it on Intel Pentium processor for giving off certain radiation, which caused her skin rashes. But court however couldn’t decipher the relation between a lady getting an itch and Intel processor. 



Result:



Case ignored



#7 Twitter Shatter



A single tweet can place a person in hot soup. Amalda Bonnen tweeted about how tough it is to sleep in moldy home, and she also included the landlord’s name in her tweet. The tweet caught on worldwide tweeters, she got 17 followers, and her landlord followed her with $50,000 lawsuit for destroying company’s reputation. 



Horizon Group Management LLC said that, Amalda’s tweet can be seen all over the world, and so it has defamed the company’s reputation. The lawsuit said “who said sleeping in a moldy apartment was bad for you? Horizon realty thinks it’s okay.”  



Result:



Irrelevant proof
