Man Sues Family of Boy He Ran Over - http://www.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/europe/01/30/spain.luxury.car/
January 2008: Spanish businessman Tomas Delgado sued the family of the 17-year-old boy he'd hit and killed for the damage that the boy's body did to his Audi. Delgado was speeding at the time, but since the boy was cycling alone at night without reflectors or a helmet, the driver wasn't charged with anything other than being a complete jerk. Under public pressure, he later dropped his lawsuit.


Sleeping Student Sues Teacher for Waking Him Up - http://wcbstv.com/local/Sleeping.Student.Lawsuit.2.676166.html
March 2008: In Danbury, Connecticut, 15-year-old Vinicios Robacher sued his teacher for slamming her palm on his desk to wake him up during class -- an action that he claimed caused him ear damage.


Man Sues Michael Jordan for Looking Like Him - http://www.kgw.com/news-local/stories/kgw_070606_news_jordan_lookalike.314c6e50.html
July 2006: Portland, Oregon resident Allen Heckard sued former basketball star Michael Jordan and Nike founder Phil Knight for $832 million, claiming that they have made Jordan such a recognizable figure that he has suffered personal harm from being repeatedly mistaken for the basketball player. Within a month, Heckard had dropped the suit.


Mayor of Batman, Turkey Sues Batman - http://www.variety.com/VR1117995653.html
November 2008: The mayor of a city in Turkey called Batman sued Warner Brothers and The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan for using the name without permission. Either it took the town's residents 70 years to realize the superhero's existence or they just wanted to cash in on The Dark Knight's billion-dollar box office take. You be the judge.


Man Sues Homeless for $1 Million - http://www.int.iol.co.za/index.php?set_id=1&click_id=29&art_id=iol1169302632986O561
January 2007: Karl Kemp, owner of a ritzy antiques store on Manhattan's Madison Avenue, sued four homeless people who congregate in front of his shop because they scare off potential customers. The amount of the suit: $1 million, payable apparently in shopping carts full of aluminum cans.


Inmate Sues Himself - http://archive.deseretnews.com/archive/414175/INMATE-SUES-HIMSELF-FOR-5-MILLION.html
April 1995: Chesapeake, Virginia prison inmate Robert Lee Brock was upset at himself for getting arrested for breaking and entering and grand larceny, so he decided to make himself pay -- by suing himself for $5 million. Stating that he violated his own religious beliefs by committing the crime, he sought payment for a civil rights offense. Of course, since he didn't have $5 million to pay himself, he asked that the state pay on his behalf. His suit was thrown out.


Magicians Sued for Stealing God's Powers - http://www.contactmusic.com/new/xmlfeed.nsf/mndwebpages/blaine%20sued%20for%20stealing%20godly%20powers
June 2005: Reality-challenged Minnesota resident Christopher Roller sued magicians David Copperfield and David Blaine for using Roller's "godly powers" without his permission to perform their acts. Roller, by the way, claimed to be a god. He also claimed that the movie The Truman Show was based on his life and that he was married to both Katie Couric and Celine Dion, with whom he planned to father 1 million babies.


Shooter's Mom Seeks Workman's Comp - http://overlawyered.com/2003/10/workplace-killers-mom-wants-comp-benefits/
October 2003: After Jonathon Russell went on a shooting spree at the manufacturing plant where he worked, leaving three dead and five injured, his mother filed for workman's compensation benefits on his behalf, citing his "death by gunfire while on company clock." She was denied


Man Sues Wife for Donated Kidney
- http://www.nydailynews.com/ny_local/2009/01/07/2009-01-07_long_island_doctor_richard_batista_to_es.html
January 2009: After Long Island doctor Richard Batista was slapped with divorce papers from his cheating wife, he decided he'd had enough and sued her for the return of a gift he'd give her eight years prior: a kidney. If that wasn't feasible, he'd "settle" for $1.5 million. You're welcome.


Insurance Company Sues 81-Year-Old Woman for Icy Driveway - http://www.jsonline.com/news/waukesha/29226334.html
February 2007: A "meals on wheels" program was delivering food to 81-year-old Anne Keipper in Brookfield, Wisconsin when the delivery woman -- who wasn't wearing boots -- slipped on a patch of ice in the driveway and fell. Three years later, Keipper was notified that she was being sued by Sentry Insurance for the medical expenses it paid related to the delivery woman's fall. The moral: senior citizens too frail to leave their house to get food should diligently shovel ice off their driveway.

If that really caused ear damage than I would be deaf.

If an insurance company can sue you for using their insurance, that you pay every month for, then they are pretty much saying, give us your money, but if you need actual insurance, we are going to sue you. That is a crime, and the risk they take in that business. That should be a crime to make you pay more than your premium for using their services that they sell you.

I think it was the insurance company of the woman who fell that was suing the old woman, not the old woman's insurance company suing the old woman for debt incurred.
