I use to work at a civil division court office and still remember this incident:

PLAINTIFF: *Explains backstory as to what brought him there* I want to sue for an apology.

ME: I’m sorry sir, but you cannot sue for an apology. You can only sue for a monetary value.

PLAINTIFF: But I don’t want any money, I only want an apology!!

ME: Again sir, you cannot sue for an apology, you have to determine a dollar amount and sue for that.

*back and forth I don’t know how many times until finally…*

PLAINTIFF: FINE! I will sue him for ONE DOLLAR.

ME: Ok good. Now, if I can just get you…..



He did actually pay $25 to file a claim for $1. He and the Defendant ended up settling out of court but I was not privy to those proceedings so I’ve always wondered if the Plaintiff did in fact get his apology.
