I know of a stupid one, too. A man an acquaintance and his wife pulled from a lake before cell phones were common later tried to sue the couple because the artificial respiration that saved his life rubbed skinned places on his back. A sane judge threw it out of court with a stern lecture to the guy stupid enough to fall into the lake.
