History’s Most Outrageous Court Cases

7. The Weatherman

This next court case seems ridiculous on the surface, but each of us at one point of our lives wanted to do something very similar. Predicting the weather is not an exact science, apparently. Failed weather predictions tend to anger people. In fact, one woman was so fed up that she sued her weatherman.


Getting stuck in the rain is not a pleasant situation, especially if you are caught without an umbrella. A woman from Israel sued her local news station, because her local weatherman said it would be a nice day. The weather reporter claimed that the day would be sunny. Instead, the woman got caught in the rain, caught the flu, needed medication, and missed a full week of work. She sued the station for $1,000 and actually won!
