My grandfather was an Air Force helicopter pilot in the Vietnam War, flying the Sikorsky MH-53 Pave Low—more commonly known as the “Super Jolly Green Giant.”  He would pick up wounded soldiers and transport them to medical bases, which routinely put him in dangerous situations. My brothers and I used to sit around his chair and listen to him tell stories about flying, and loved hearing him talk about the logistics of flying helicopters.
Frivolous litigation is essentially lawsuits that have no legal merit - no legal sense – and usually little chance of being won. These kinds of cases typically seem so ridiculous that most people can’t help but snicker when they hear about them; like suing the restaurant where you dropped your coffee on yourself and got burned. Other examples of such trivial pursuits include football fans who sued referees, fathers prepared to litigate over their fifteen-year-olds’ positions on high school athletic teams, a purchaser of Cracker Jacks who demanded damages for a missing prize, and a McDonald’s customer who sought $15,000 for damage to his teeth and marital relations caused by a defective bagel.
