History’s Most Outrageous Court Cases

12. Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan was the man in the 1990s. He was known for his moves on the basketball court, being in Space Jam, and using his celebrity to sell products. Michael Jordan became a household name. Unfortunately, for one man, he wished that  Michael Jordan was not so famous.



A man bearing a striking resemblance to Michael Jordan was not pleased with all the attention. The man, Allen Heckard, decided that he had enough with all the publicity. In 2006, he took his frustration to the courts and decided to sue for the professional athlete for all the negative attention. He claimed that all the attention had negative psychological effects on him. Heckard eventually dropped the $800 million dollar lawsuit.
