It reminds me of the stories of people wanting to sue because they did get the birthday present they were hoping for.
As a human being I just have to start by saying you should be grateful that so many people put the effort they do into the Burning Man event and that you have in the past, and may again in the future have the opportunity to participate in the event.
Yup, agreed 100% - wrong in so many ways AND mean spirited, spiteful, complete misuse of the legal system:
One of the things I hate most about the practice of civil law are the people who just try to use it as a weapon to punish someone - or think they have hit the lawsuit lottery. How in the bloody hell do you think that so many have been SO damaged as to make a suit viable??? Oh darn, they didn't get to go on the vacation they planned on????? Oh, they spent money without knowing they could get in????
Ok, yes, the ticketing problems this year really suck. That does not mean I want to create more problems for an event I care a lot about and have spent years volunteering for. That is the only possible joy you would get out of such a suit. Take it somewhere else and play with it, Newbie. If such a suit ever saw the light of day, I, for one, would be very happy to volunteer to assist in it's defense - and many more like me. You are biting off way more than you want to chew. If you need to right a wrong, go to Syria.
We have security cameras all over our property. The most common use? Finding someone about to stage a slip and fall. Carry a bottle of water, walk over to an out of the way place, sprinkle water on ground, gently lower self into position, start screaming. Usually security just points up at the camera, lets them know they are being and have been filmed and they are miraculously cured. One in a while, one insists on filing a complaint. That's what insurance is for.
Just recently had a personal lawsuit against me dropped. Claimed I attacked her at a Jets game when I was on the other side of the stadium and in a higher level. Went through 4 lawyers before the last one dropped her. Someone found a youtube video of her doing the attacking. She took her shoe off and started beating people around her. After she was ejected, claimed neck and wrist injuries. It's always neck and wrist.
