Every now and again, one encounters a lawsuit so silly on its face — so transparently ridiculous — it makes one wonder if the justice system fails us by allowing it to even get filed, let alone litigated.

After casually reading the complaint, you want to step into the shoes of Judge Judy or one of her irascible TV counterparts, and shake the plaintiff’s attorney by his lapels and tell him, as he passionately goes through his advocacy paces, to “Just Shut Up!” — to take his piece of drivel to a prime time appellate show and “let them deal with your client’s lunacy.” No one gets to dish out comeuppance like Judge Judy!
