They seem to always be able to find a blood-sucking lawyer ready and willing to take up the torch too.

Its getting that some people have skin thinner than egg shells. They need to toughen up and not take offense at every thing that they don't like instead of going to court to sue someone. But then some people will do almost anything in attempt to get money.

A black man in New Jersey has filed a lawsuit against his former employer, Benjamin Moore Paints, which he says named one of its paint colors after him and then fired him when he complained.

Clinton Tucker, who managed online sales for Benjamin Moore, which is owned by the conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway, said that he was bothered by the names of several of the company’s paint colors, “Clinton Brown,” “Tucker Chocolate,” and “Confederate Red.”

“Being a black man named Clinton Tucker, the plaintiff found this to be extremely racially offensive,” reads the complaint, filed in Essex County Court.

Tucker claims that the company’s executive management were aware of his displeasure with the color names, but failed to take his complaints seriously and then terminated — allegedly unlawfully — him in March 2014.

Tucker worked on a project to create a new line of paint colors. One of the shades was given the name “Tucker Chocolate.”

The company already had a color named “Clinton Brown.” A co-worker pointed out the names of the two paint colors, which together contained Tucker’s first and last name, and thought it was funny, according to the lawsuit.

“Tucker found it to be repulsive,” the complaint reads. “Coupled with ‘Tucker Chocolate,’ it was racially offensive and demeaning to Clinton Tucker.”

“Yes, the allegation is the colors were named after my client,” Schalk told TheDC.

On its website, Benjamin Moore describes “Tucker Chocolate” as “capturing the 1798 color requested by St. George Tucker for his home facing Courthouse Green, this deep brown is classic and understated.”

Mrs Sav. is correct here in Jersey the process take about 90 days. Then with a court order the sheriff will come escort them out and make sure they don;t come back. The process to get them out is so difficult, time consuming and very stressful for those involved.

What you CAN do is lock away all food in the house. She'll have to leave eventually.

The issue is that you have no legal right to put them out of your home once they've established residence. The timeline on that varies state to state but in this area it is after 30 days I believe. It doesn't matter if it is a friend, a stranger, a leaser , a parent or your own adult child You can rant and rave, ask nicely, beg, plead or make threats but the bottom line is if they refuse to go you can not make them without the assistance of a court order. You can not simply lock them out either. Don't you watch Judge Judy ? lol My sympathies to anyone caught in that scenario .

My first reaction to the previous 2 posts was that yes, there are people that will take advantage of those who are willing too help. It's a shame that it has to come to them being evicted or forced to leave and people having to go through the expense and pressure on themselves to try and rectify the situations.

My second thought was bobbie boy. This is right up his alley kind of nonsense for not paying him a living wage, whatever that is in his little mind.

This happens more often than most of us know. In December, friends of mine allowed a homeless woman who was living in her car with her dog to move into their home "temporarily," until she found a job - which was seasonal sales work, so she now has no income again. As my friends tried to find another place for her to live (along with another job), she rejected each and every offer for one reason or another, though there was no good reason to do so. She is mentally ill (surprise, surprise) and has bizarre phobias about so many things in life. I'm not as much of a compassionate person/doormat as my friends and would have booted her out the door as soon as the weather warmed up, despite her threats that she will kill herself if they do so. She has found the perfect solution to her problems - they house and feed her, and have minimal requirements for her contribution to the household.

Marcella and Ralph Bracamonte of Upland, California, say they hired Diane Stretton, 64, as a live-in nanny on March 4 to help with their three children. Stretton was to nanny for the family and help around the house in exchange for room and board.

“We’ve done it before and have never had a problem,” Marcella Bracamonte told ABC News. “I was a stay-at-home mom and thought it would be good to have someone around to help out.”

“The first few weeks she was awesome,” Bracamonte said. “She would come places with us, help out the kids. She was really great.”

Then things changed. “All of a sudden she stopped working, she would stay in her room all day and only come out when food was ready,” said Bracamonte.

Stretton then told the couple she had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which prevented her from helping around the house. After what Bracamonte said was weeks of failed attempts to encourage Stretton to perform some of her agreed upon duties, the couple approached her on June 6 with a “last chance letter” reiterating the conditions of her job and stating the consequences if she continued to ignore her responsibilities. Stretton, Bracamonte said, refused to sign the letter, saying that the job was too much for her and she would be leaving in 30 days.

The Bracamontes approached her with a second letter putting her 30-day notice in writing, which, they said, she also refused to sign. “When I asked her why she wouldn’t sign the letter she said ‘It’s not legal,’ and slammed the door in my face,” Bracamonte recalled. “Once she said the word legal, I knew it wasn’t going to be fun.”

Bracamonte called the police, but the cops declined to do anything, saying it was a civil matter. Lt. John Moore of the Upland Police Department confirmed to ABC News that there is no immediate action that can be taken against Stretton, saying "generally, once somebody has established residency, you have to go through a formal eviction process.”

Bracamonte soon realized that this was not Stretton’s first time with legal matters. Stretton reportedly has been involved in 36 lawsuits, landing herself on California’s Vexatious Litigant Lists for repeatedly abusing the legal system. “Anyone who looks at her crooked, she sues,” said Bracamonte.

She claims that Stretton is now threatening to sue for wrongful firing and elder abuse.

Stretton is still living in the family's home, eating the family's food and Bracamonte said Stretton told her she wanted the family out of the house from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

“I’m not going to bend for her,” said Bracamonte. “I’m in charge, this is my house. She’s not going to scare me out of my own house.”

But Bracamonte fears for her three children staying in the house with Stretton, saying “I worry there’s obviously something not right in her mind, and the police won’t protect us until someone gets hurt.”

“You don’t know what you’re opening yourself up to when you open your house to someone,” said Bracamonte.
