It's time again for the annual “Stella Awards.” For those unfamiliar with these awards, they are named after 81-year-old Stella Liebeck who spilled
hot coffee on herself and successfully sued the McDonald's in New Mexico ,
where she purchased coffee. You remember, she took the lid off the coffee and
put it between her knees while she was driving. Who would ever think one
could get burned doing that, right? That's right; these are awards for the most
outlandish lawsuits and verdicts in the U.S. You know, the kinds of cases that
make you scratch your head and say WTF. So keep your head scratcher handy.
Kathleen Robertson of Austin, Texas, was awarded $80,000 by a jury of her peers
after breaking her ankle tripping over a toddler who was running inside a furniture
store. The store owners were understandably surprised by the verdict, considering
the running toddler was her own son.

I've done some research on the Internet about the other cases in the email. None of those cases actually exists. Not one of them could be located in court records, jury verdict reporters, contemporaneous news accounts or even through local bar association tort committees.

PS: The lady who sued McDonalds about the hot coffee suffered third degree burns, spent 8 days in the hospital, and had skin grafts. She offered to settled for her medical bills and McDonalds refused.

All bogus, no historical evidence of these in legal history. Though they are amusing to read they are all fiction. Fiction like the woman who sued the pharmacy after getting pregnant even though she at the contraceptive jelly on her toast.
