    Delfina, it's not only Google's fault, it's the tack shop's too. They should have known the directions you got were bad. Sue 'em all!!!

    I found the tack shop but ended up being quite late for my lesson. Surely my lateness is Google's fault, right!?
    Silly you, lateness is not what you want to go for - the big money is in emotional damages.

    I can't sue the tack shop, it's the ONLY English Tack shop within a bazillion miles and they have a puppy! My kids sat in the corner with the puppy the entire time. I got to shop in peace and quiet.... that alone is worth a million bucks!

    It is unlawful lawsuit. She cannot hold them resonsible for her interpretation of information that wasn't even published by google. Google is a third party. Which means she has no case, at least around these parts.

    Nah I'd bet money she wins the lawsuit. People can sue and win over anything now a days. I remember a LOONNGGG time ago, there was someone who broke into a residence's garage and somehow got locked in while the residents were on vacation. The guy who broke in, sued the homeowners because he had no food, water, or way out. He won.

    You get a good enough lawyer and you can win any case.

    She won't "win". But it's entirely possible they will settle out of courts - most major companies (like McDonalds, mentioned earlier) prefer to just pay up and settle out of courts rather than risk judgements against them slighting the company profile - even if chances are they would not lose the case in court.

    ^^Got an idea... those unfounded lawsuits aren't that common here but perhaps I'd be the first one which would start to earn money with them... Because I'm suffering from a lack of imagination at the moment, someone of you would find me some reason and target which I'd suit. I promise to share my first "win" with the inventor .

    Well, there was a person who spilled a cup of McDonald's coffee in their lap and got burned. They sued McDonald's because there wasn't a warning on the cup that the contents could be hot. That person won the lawsuit. Apparently the common knowledge that "Holy Crap! It's coffee that just came off a burner, I bet it's hot." didn't matter much. Now you cannot get a cup of coffee anywhere that doesn't have "CAUTION: CONTENTS MAY BE HOT" printed on it everywhere.

    I didn't know it started this off because it was of a Mckiddis incident. Interesting.
