How to Get Sued: An Instructional Guide

by J. Craig Williams
 

You'd like a first-hand tour of America's legal system, experiencing the view from the litigant's side of the courtroom. Of course, you can't just walk into a courtroom and demand that someone sue you. This will work, of course, but it will take a lot of time and psychiatric evaluations before you're obliged. It's much quicker and easier to find yourself in court

Overview

You'd like a first-hand tour of America's legal system, experiencing the view from the litigant's side of the courtroom. Of course, you can't just walk into a courtroom and demand that someone sue you. This will work, of course, but it will take a lot of time and psychiatric evaluations before you're obliged. It's much quicker and easier to find yourself in court if you give someone a reason to sue you.

Luckily, this process isn't as difficult as you might think. There are dozens of ways to find yourself embroiled in litigation, from the mundane to the majestic.

Pick your poison-what do you want to do to ensure you too have your day in court? Here are the top ten options: 1. Fall In Love, 2. Own a Business, 3. Commit a Crime, 4. Go to Work, 5. Live on Earth, 6. Have Children, 7. Enjoy Yourself, 8. Indulge in a Few Vices, 9. Own a Pet, 10. Own a Home.

Of course, you don't need to feel restricted to these ten options. If you can come up with a creative, unique way to cause a lawsuit, feel free-lawyers always like a challenge.
