Beck’s: The German Beer that’s not German.
Beck’s is a popular beer that originated in Germany in 1873. In 2012, that quintessential American brewmeister, Anheuser Busch (the makers of Budweiser, the King of Beers), bought Beck’s and decided to save a few bucks (well, $9 million bucks) and concoct Beck’s brewskis in St. Louis. One problem, however. They didn’t tell Beck’s fans that their German beer wasn’t technically German anymore. Nothing on the label indicated that Beck’s was now the best St. Louis, Missouri (not Bremen, Germany) could offer. Some lawyers smelled a payday and filed a class action suit against Anheuser Busch. Settled this year, Beck’s fans who have imbibed since 2012 can now claim up to $50 a person. The lawyers got a bit more than that…$3.5 million. We’re betting they are enjoying a nice cold one right about now.

A Tennessee man sued Apple for his porn addiction.
One day, former attorney and amateur model Chris Sevier accidentally typed "F---book," instead of "Facebook" on his Apple device.
Now, he's suing the tech giant for selling him a machine with unrestricted Internet access. Since Apple is "concerned with the welfare of our Nation's children, while furthering pro-American values" it should "sell all its devices in 'safe mode,' with software preset to filter out pornographic content," according to his suit.
Sevier also claims that by giving access to porn at users' fingertips, Apple has harmed actual, brick and mortar adult stores, the Huffington Post reported.
