U.S. Chamber names the 10 most ridiculous lawsuits of 2016

(U.S. Chamber) -- The U.S. Chamber has named the top 10 "most ridiculous lawsuits of 2016." Among the legal cases making the list was one man's lawsuit against the University of Nebraska in a bid to stop the 50-year tradition of Husker football fans celebrating touchdowns by releasing red balloons. Two abusive lawsuits against Starbucks made the No. 1 spot. "The world's largest coffee chain was hit by two class action lawsuits over how much java is in their cups. One says there's a quarter inch too much steamed milk instead of coffee. Another says there's too much ice in -- you guessed it -- the iced coffee."
