E-Bay Fertile Ground for Dumbasses

ebay-logo-716-90_302_x_302.jpgSteve Shellhorn, who purchased some coins on E-Bay that were not packed particularly well was sued by the seller for $10,000 after Shellhorn left neutral feedback.

“This is neutral feedback, not even negative feedback, but neutral. He sued me for $10,000,” he said.
We took the lawsuit to University of Washington law professor Jane Winn. “I thought that seller was a few cards short of a deck,” she said.
The judge in Buncome County, North Carolina might not agree with that assessment, but he recently tossed out the suit.
It cost Shellhorn $500 to hire an attorney.

But you know who comes out a winner in all this, don’t you. The lawyers, of course!
