Ok, I have been tempted once or twice to file suit when someone at the store gets my order wrong, or they make me wait too long.  i might have even joked about doing so once or twice.  But, I have never seriously considered suing over something trivial.  I mean, let’s be real.  

But, a Personal Injury lawyer in New York City did not hesitate when Brooks Brothers, he believes, gave him the wrong suit.  Robert Ginsberg filed suit for $7,646 when the retailer gave him a suit that was a slightly different color and the wrong size than the one he believed he purchased.  He is asking for $646 for the suit, $2000 for his time when he had to argue with the store for 90 minutes and $5,000 in punitive damages.  Of course, he did not discover the error for a couple of months, after he opened the garment bag.  See ABA Bar Journal report

Mr. Ginsberg previously sued American Airlines for $2 million when he had an altercation with an attendant over a food cart.  That suit was dismissed and is now on appeal.  

Ok, so the next time Popeye’s gets my order wrong, look out…….

    Wow, that is pretty low! He must have been really concerned about that suit considering he didn’t look at it for two months.
