It's stuff like this that scares the crap out of you:

Short version:

A teenager successfully sued a woman for a cut of her $2.9 million New York 
lottery jackpot on the theory that he prayed to a "Saint Eleggua" to make 
her numbers win. Trial court throws the case out, but the appellate court 
actually sends it back to trial. Heck, they even freeze the winnings, 
finding that "plaintiff was likely to succeed on the merits."

What the hell is going on?
