This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things

Frivolous lawsuits are the worst.  I sometimes think we should have a system whereby if you lose a lawsuit, and the judge or jury thinks your lawsuit was frivolous and/or just out of spite, you should be required to pay the winner's legal bills. 
What was supposed to be one man’s special day at Disney World turned out to be less than magical.

Marc Rubin, 57, who was visiting from New York, had plans to propose to his girlfriend in front of Cinderella’s Castle, but things went awry when he got into an altercation with a park employee who asked he move from the parade route.
Rubin blocks the parade route, is asked to move, cops an attitude, and 3 years later decides to sue?  How about this?
Rubin was escorted to the park’s security office and later arrested and charged. He had planned to propose at the conclusion of the night’s festivities.
Maybe, if you're going to propose to someone, you don't act like as ass.  It's just a suggestion.

Wonder if the person he was proposing to accepted. After seeing such a display, maybe saying no was the right answer.
