In the Thanksgiving's-gonna-be-awkward category comes this AP story of one Carriel Louah, who paid her parents a surprise visit for her mom's birthday back in 2005. She slipped and fell in their (allegedly) icy driveway the next morning, injuring herself, and has now sued her mom and stepfather.
U.S. District Judge John Shabas denied summary judgment: Download ice.pdf.
(There's nothing particularly problematic with the suit itself, incidentally. It seems to be a fairly run-of-the-mill premises case, made interesting only by the familial connection.)
