"Balan sued supermodel Le Call for $1 million, claiming that he lent her a Jean-Paul Gaultier-designed umbrella — and that she returned it to him in two pieces.
Balan claimed emotional distress and said that the model had intentionally damaged the umbrella."
The judge fined the lawyer $500 for wasting his time. He should fined him $5,000. Lawsuits like this make the case for tort-reform. Can we please stop clogging our system up with every jerk trying to take advantage of a situation to make a quick buck. Balan was actually trying to sue for emotional distress over his broken umbrella.
