The wife of late actor, David Carradine, gets my vote for the moronic lawsuit filer of the week award. According to TMZ, Anne Carradine “is suing the production company of the movie he was shooting when he died, claiming the company should never have left David alone that night.”
If you’ll recall, the “Kung Fu” star died of auto-erotic asphyxiation (the intentional restriction of oxygen to the brain for sexual arousal) one year ago. He was found hanged to death in a closet in his hotel room.
Anyway, Anne’s legal argument is that David wouldn’t have died “had the production company fulfilled its obligations and followed industry standards in caring for its star.” Basically, she’s saying that because David’s movie assistant went to dinner without him that night, Carradine had to amuse himself – and we all know what the result of that was… You can read the full story here.
This ridiculous lawsuit is an example of what’s wrong with the judicial system today. People want a tasty settlement, so they sue first and ask questions later. I didn’t realize that movie stars needed babysitters either…
