Karl Kemp vs. New York’s homeless
Karl Kemp owns a high-end antique shop on Madison Avenue in New York. This is also a spot where four homeless people would sleep at night. Kemp got fed up with them and sued them for 1 million dollars and a 100-foot restriction from the front door. Needless to say, the homeless people did not have a million dollars, but there had to be a price on the lawsuit. Kemp was not New York’s favorite antique shop owner and his lawsuit was deemed mean spirited.
Sentry Insurance vs Keipper
Anne Keipper was sued by her own insurance company for a compensation claim that she put in for a delivery lady that slipped on her driveway. The delivery lady was an involuntary plaintiff and didn’t want anything to do with the lawsuit. Sentry just wanted to cover the cost of a legitimate payout that they had to make to one of their clients. So the multi-billion-dollar insurance company decided to sue an 81-year-old client of theirs for something that was not her fault. Gotta love insurance companies.
