Here’s an Assorted Stupidity from the collection of Kevin Underhill’s Lowering The Bar:
One way to get sued, apparently, is to spend millions of dollars doing nice things for people, which is what Marie Holmes did after she won $188 million playing Powerball. A single mother with four children, Holmes took the lump-sum payment option, which came out to $88 million. She did lots of stuff for her family. Unfortunately, she also did lots of stuff for her now-ex-fiance, who is suing her from prison. Did she pay $21 million to bail him out of jail repeatedly? She did. Did she buy him about $1.4 million worth of gifts? She did. Did he sue her anyway? He did.
