Stupidest Lawsuit EVER

| Filed under: Legal Matters

Holy stuipidty, Batman!

The mayor of a small Turkish city called Batman (real name) is suing…ah, Batman.

Even though the comic book hero was first introduced in 1939, the show debuted in 1966, and the Caped Crusader finally hit the big screen in 1989, (The city of) Batman is only now filing a lawsuit against Christopher Nolan and Warner Bros. for using the name "Batman" without permission. The timing is suspicious considering how Dark Knight - Batman's latest installment - is about to hit the $1 billion mark at box offices worldwide.

Money can sure make people stupid!

The mayor of Batman, Huseyin Kalkan, is also claiming that the shared name has caused several unsolved murder cases and made their women particularly suicidal. He also said that the franchise has made it difficult for businesses of his city to register overseas.

A Warner Bros. rep responded to the lawsuit with "We are only aware of this claim via press reports and have not seen any actual legal action."

The mayor should consider renaming the city….

To Idiotsville.

    Re: karencarpenter – We actually read about that case in law school, and that woman had 2nd and 3rd degree burns on her vajayjay, and that was after McDonald's had been warned about the temperature of their coffee numerous times. Not to mention she wasn't the first that got burned she was just the first that didn't take a menial settlement. I don't know about you but if I had to have skin grafts on my vajayjay I would consider suing too.

    Besides isn't Washington D.C. presently called Idiotsville?



  24. 24

    BOO!

    Re: FAGS SHOULD BE SMOKED! – Where you been?



  30. 30

    Re: Jaded – …ouch! I would have sued too. Since you have backed this up with fact, I have to accept that it was NOT a stupid lawsuit. "I Believe You" and I again 'sit' corrected. (With, thankfully, a not burned vajayjay!)



  31. 31

    !



  32. 32

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?



  33. 33

    Words fail me.



  34. 34

    I would guess that living in a small repressive middle eastern city is what is making their women suicidal.

    Re: whocares1234Re: whocares1234 – Well my dear I guess u wheter Kurd or armenian. I don't care what race u are but stop doing hatespeeches and racist post. very childish.



  38. 38

    i'm not surprised. Turks are idiots. hahahah losers!



  39. 39

    Old news perez… I read this last week in some Dutch tabloid.



  40. 40

    They say mayor Huseyin Kalkan also sued DC Comics a few years back for that same exact reason. Later the mayor was accused of promoting terrorism - presumably using the money DC Comics settled on giving the guy.

    Nolan shouldn't give in to this lunatic. Batman doesn't promote terrorism!



  41. 41

    Re: DimplesB – Sorry, if U feel personal attact, but it´s my experience!!!!
    BTW I´m a blond christian European, not a kurd or armenian!
    .
    I was nearly everywere in the world and I never had so many horrible experiences like in Turkie!!!
    In Afrika and everywhere the people where just great, this had nothing to do with religion, but in Turkie…I never met so many obtrusive, cunning, rude and evil people!!!
    .
    …Sorry, maybe U´re different, but that´s my experience… my worst experience!!!



  42. 42

    that mayor must of been smoking some real primo shit in his hooka



  43. 43

    Who Cares 1234: First of all you can't fucking spell. It is Turkey and Turkish people. Many countries are corrupt and everyone has bad expriences. Batman is a remote part of Turkey that many Turkish people do not visit so needless to say, this Mayor is ignorant. I lived in Instanbul for years and you are open to your opinions but you sound like a whiney bitch. Turkey doesn't do just anything to get money from the Europe asshole they loved to be a part of the European Union but they have many things to comply with as in Human Rights, etc. Good don't go back to Turkey your ignorant fuck. Learn to spell.



  44. 44

    Re: whocares1234 – Are you Greek or Armenian or maybe a Greek Cypriot, your whining like them? Whine, whine, whine……..



  45. 45

    Re: whocares1234

    Re: whocares1234
    a- its Turkey
    b- please do not make generalizations from your personal experience
    you can say its your personal experience but generalizing it is unfair to all those that believe Turkey is amazing and who had experiences different than you.
    Besides, it is one out of 80 million Turks, I bet you can find idiots like that all over the world.In fact for the US, we can start with the president!



  48. 48

    LOL Thats hilarious!



  49. 49

    Anything for money. Damn.



  50. 50

    hardly think that this is the stupidest lawsuit ever, we do live in america people wake up! if i had the slighest chance of being able to sue someone for something i would do it too. this guy is just trying his luck and if he's successfull woohoo $$$$. As if you wouldnt do it if you had thought of it.



  51. 51

    Wait.

    So there are unsolved murder cases because batman is not there to dish out justice?
    Also, the women are suicidal because they don't have a hottie masked man coming into their rooms at night? Shoot, that would make me suicidal…

    I don't know about you guys, but I think they have a TOTALLY legitmate claim and might win millions.

    sike.

    You stole that story from Dr. Funkenberry's site!!!!
    You didn't even bother to change the words!!!!
    Lame



  55. 55

    Well, just to let you know;
    The mayor of that town is a seperatist "Kurd" so if there are Kurdish fellas around who's willing to discredit Turkey about that funny story, they're gonna have to think twice.
    Anyway, these stuff happens a lot in Turkey. It's just a desperate cry for some attention before the elections. Batman is so secluded, even most of the Turks can't even show where it is on a map. Not that any of you care about it, Batman is probably named, decades "after" Batman (the heroic one) was created.

    Finally, dear Armenian people, don't lower yourselves talking about that fictional genocidal history you created or whatever, in an ignorant, "american" celebrity web site. Believe me, it's kinda lame what you're doing. I'm sure if you could hush for just a second, just a little tiny cute second, Turks may even consider accepting "baklava" belongs to you or Greeks… But you won't, right?



  56. 56

    perez i hate you and im turkish. batman rules its the best city ive ever been to. instead of watching the stupid dark night go see some sites you ignorant fucks maybe you'll learn some culture.



  57. 57

    OMG.. this is weird. I was at a falafel place in San Francisco with my friend about a month ago, and there was this huge poster of the city of Batman and we were flipping out and thought it was funny. We even said something like, "I wonder if this city will sue for the use of the city's name?" HAHHA.. we are so psychic!!!
