    This is a stupid bit. The lawsuits are not frivolous. Somebody has to stand up these large corporations that lie to its consumers. Godiva is indeed misleading from consumers that it's chocolate comes from Belgium. TGI Friday's is completely duping its customers by selling potato skins which aren't really potatoes. And, Poland Spring is indeed duping its customers by selling water that is ordinary well water. Instead of class action lawsuit firms suing these large corporations, why doesn't the government take a stand and sue these large corporations? This is truly absurd.

    I don't care if the people suing companies get any money out of their lawsuits, but I am completely in favor of companies being punished and fined for misleading advertising.

    Fun fact: The lady who sued Mcdonalds was actually severely burned by the coffee. She only sued because they refused to pay for her hospital bill.

    I’m so glad that they didn’t talk about the McDonalds coffee law suit, because that poor woman was in the right (I thought she was crazy until I watched Adam Ruins Everything about it and felt terrible)

    The thing is -- most of these lawsuits aren't originated by an individual. It's plaintiffs' lawyers walking up and down grocery store aisles figuring out what they can sue companies over. They then find someone who can represent the suit and claim "damages".

    Also, the TGIF potato skins snacks have been around for years, too. Funny how this lawsuit comes about now. Probably been the same ingredients for years, too.

    The US has by far the most idiotic laws in the entire world, when a random person can sue a company for millions of dollars for a logo or similar. I´m sure the persons doing this went through an absolutely horrible ordeal and had to spend years in therapy to get over it. So yeah... well worth a few million in compensation, poor idiot.

    The one that cracks me up, is the story about a woman, who bought a (paper) cup of coffee in a fast food restaurant, drove off in her car WITH A CUP OF PIPING HOT COFFEE WEDGED BETWEEN HER LEGS and successfully contested in court, that the restaurant had not added a disclaimer on the cup not to do what she did, when she inevitably scolded herself.
    As painful as that undoubtedly was, it is self evident that your genital area is generally not the best place to store a cup of hot liquid.
    Her case would have been dismissed in my country.

    But shouldn't we be holding corporation accountable for lying to us? Setiously wtf is potato skins made of if its not potatoes. These are not frivoulous lawsuits these are corporations actively gaslighting people because we have the audacity to ask that they stop lying to us. This same bullshit happened when that poor woman sued mcdonalds over the hot coffee. Try actually reading the full context of the story. She got 3rd degree burns and had to be hospitalized. Mcdonald set up a smear campaign making it look like a silly money grabbing lawsuit when in fact all she wanted was her medical bills paid and for them to agree to serve coffee at a reasonable temperature.

    5 million dollars because of potato skins? That’s (one of) the problem(s) with American law suits: the judges should just send those people home with a warning because of wasting the justice system‘s time

    I still find this funny but remember that "stupid lawsuits" are a hurtful stigma. Lawsuits are one of the few defenses people have towards big corporations who will cut corners to save money and misinform by any means they can find as long as it lures you to buy their product. If you still wanna be entertained (I know I do, that's why I'm watching the daily show :D) but wanna know more, go to tvclip.biz/video/KNWh6Kw3ejQ/video.html . The full episode can be found on truetv or perhaps youtube or google :) the show is super funny, but this clip takes a turn to the serious ;)

    Is strange how Trevor hates America so much yet chooses to live here, perhaps it is the millions of dollars a year that he is paid he and yet he is always complaining about wealth inequality here. I really hope he actually donates his own money to help and not just criticize others who have much much less then he does.

    "Poland Springs" water comes from a town in Maine called "Poland Springs", which were named after the springs that the town has (or maybe had?). It's not really false advertising.

    Okay the Poland spring water is a legitimate complaint of false advertising. If you look at the packaging in the video, it reads
    "Poland Spring
    100% Natural Spring Water".
    They're advertising it as being spring water beyond just the brand name.

    Jfc, don't talk about law if you don't understand it. Misleading marketing should be illegal whether or not people should be more skeptical (they should), and it takes huge losses in money to remotely incentivize improvements in behavior. If companies just pay small annoyance fees, then they're effectively exempt from the law. At least the insidious McDonald's coffee canard wasn't regurgitated.
