A New York woman is suing Apple after walking face-first into one of their glass doors.  She reportedly broke her nose as a result of the incident, and is suing Apple for $75,000 in medical expenses, and $1 million in punitive damages.

Evelyn Paswall, 83, is claiming that the doors pose a risk to the elderly.  Her suit claims that "The defendant was negligent . . . in allowing a clear, see-through glass wall and/or door to exist without proper warning.”

Her attorney, Derek T. Smith, added:

'Apple wants to be cool and modern and have the type of architecture that would appeal to the tech crowd, but on the other hand, they have to appreciate the danger that this high-tech modern architecture poses to some people.'

[...]

'There were no markings on the glass or they were inadequate,” he [continued]. 'My client is an octogenarian. She sees well, but she did not see any glass...The stereotypical Apple customer is a Gen-Y person or a teenager or a college student, but they have to realize that the elderly generation are their customers, too...'

Many are saying the lawsuit is overly litigious, and having "warning" signs on glass doors is absolutely unnecessary.

And that brings us to this video, which notes 25 other "ridiculous" lawsuits:
