Most lawsuits files are crazy and don't deserve a second look. But with the number a legal experts around lawsuits are filed for anything and everything with the hope that it will be settled out of court for a much smaller amount due to the high cost and time in fighting it.

People need to keep in mind that anyone can file a lawsuit for anything, so really all this story means is that some crazy lady filled out the paperwork. It doesn't mean that it's going anywhere.

Now, if the judge allows it - newsworthy.

If a jury actually awards damages - WTF..

I'm in favor of a "loser pays" system where people who bring suits like this have to foot the costs of the defense. Often though, crazy people don't have 2 cents to rub together.

Well I think her issue is the AMOUNT of ice, not the fact that it has ice, claiming that the ice overkill is a ripoff.

Still stupid... but yeah.

I saw this and thought of this thread.

Is she also going to sue every other restaurant chain for diluting their iced tea with ice?

What did this dipstick expect when she was ordering an "iced coffee"? That they would strain the ice out and then run it through an RO filter to get the extra water out? Of course if they strained the ice out she would have sued for false advertising.

An Illinois woman is reportedly suing Starbucks for $5 million over the amount of ice it puts in customers’ drinks.

Stacy Pincus accuses the coffee chain of packing almost half of their cold beverages with ice as a means to skimp on serving actual coffee to customers, according to the suit obtained by Courthouse News.

When it comes to ordering a 24-ounce “Venti” coffee, for example, Pincus claims a customer only receives 14 ounces of actual coffee, and ice takes up the remaining 10. The miffed customer further notes that hot Starbucks beverages typically cost less than cold ones, even though they contain more coffee because of the lack of ice.

Among the accusations hurled at the coffee conglomerate are fraud, negligent misrepresentation and unjust enrichment.

Panic ensued on a college campus last week when social media fueled rumors that a member of the Ku Klux Klan had been spotted. The man, as students later realized, wasn't a Klan member, but rather Father Jude McPeak, an ordained priest from Evergreen, in line for frozen yogurt while wearing his habit.

Students from Indiana University took to Twitter to caution fellow students of a man "dressed in white robes" who was seen on campus "carrying a whip." A university dorm resident advisor subsequently sent out a cautionary email to students in his building, and campus-wide chaos ensued.
